Tunguska Event – Extraterrestrial Intervention?

One month and 101 years ago, something exploded over a remote part of Siberia, causing mass desctruction to an area of 100 square miles. On June 30th, 1908 at 7:15 in the morning a ‘pillar of fire’ was seen northwest of Lake Baykal, near the Tunguska River. Quickly followed by a massive thunderclap and at least 3 shock waves. The ‘pillar of fire’ was seen from hundred of miles away and the damage from the explosion did damage almost 400 miles from what is estimated to be the epicenter. Using data from the event, scientists think the blast was as powerful as a 15 megaton atomic bomb.

Most scientists think the blast was caused by a meteorite exploding several miles above the surface, but Russian scientist Yuriy Lavbin is proposing that an alien craft stopped a meteorite from crashing into the earth. If the meteorite would have been allowed to strike the ground, the destruction would have been far worse, possibly ending human life on earth.

Lavbin is in possession of ten quartz crystals that he claims were found near the epicenter of the 1908 Tunguska Event. Lavbin states that such quartz don’t form on earth and believes they were part of the navigational system of a spaceship.

This isn’t a new theory. In the January 1946 issue of Vokrug Sveta, the oldest Russian language magazine, A. Kasantsev’s sci-fi story explained the Tunguska explosion was caused when a meteor of comet struck and vaporized a Martian spaceship. Russian scientists Aleksey Zolotov, Felix Zigel, and books like The Fire Came have been promoting the extraterrestrial intervention theory for many years.

With the recent impact of something huge into Jupiter and near collision of the Lexell’s Comet (D/1770 L1) in August 1770, it is quite apparent the danger of the Earth being struck by something huge cruising through our solar system.
