Members of a special expedition researching the site of the famous Tunguska meteorite fall have claimed they had discovered parts of an extraterrestrial device.
The expedition, organized by the Siberian Public State Foundation Tunguska Space Phenomenon completed its work on the scene of Tunguska meteorite fall on August 9. It was the first expedition to the region since 2000. Guided by the space photos, the researchers scanned a wider territory in the vicinity of the Poligusa village for parts of the space object that crashed into Earth in 1908 and was later called the Tunguska meteorite.
The scientists claim that they found remains of an extraterrestrial technical device that allegedly had an accident in Siberia in 1908. They also say that they found the so called deer stone - an artifact repeatedly mentioned in the reports of the eyewitnesses of the Tunguska phenomenon. A part of the deer stone has been delivered to Krasnoyarsk for research.
The head of the expedition Yuri Lavbin told MosNews on Tuesday that the researchers had traced the possible trajectory of the space object, but this time they counted that it ran from West to East, unlike the members previous missions who thought that the object had flown East to West. The new approach allowed the expedition members to find a buried object covered with trees.
The object appeared to be a large block made with metal. The researchers chipped a piece of the object and will now test its composition.
In his further comment to MosNews, Lavbin noted that according to his calculations, the mass of the space object that collided with the Earth in 1908 amounted to almost 1 billion tons and the blast on impact must have destroyed the humanity. The fact that it did not happen testifies to the theory that the Tunguska event was an explosion of an artificial object at an altitude of about 10 kilometers.
I am fully confident and I can make an official statement that we were saved by some forces of a superior civilization, the scientist said. They exploded this enormous meteorite that headed towards us with enormous speed, he said. Now this great object that caused the meteorite to explode is found at last. We will continue our research, he said.
Lavbin says that the results of this years expedition give him hope that the Tunguska mystery will be solved before the phenomenons 100th anniversary. To do this, Russian researchers plan another large-scale expedition to the Eastern Siberia.
The Tunguska event was an aerial explosion that occurred near the Tunguska River in Siberia on June 30, 1908. The blast felled an estimated 60 million trees over 2,150 square kilometres. On this day, local residents observed a huge fireball, almost as bright as the Sun, moving across the sky. A few minutes later, there was a flash that lit up half of the sky, followed by a shock wave that knocked people off their feet and broke windows up to 400 miles away.
The explosion registered on seismic stations across Eurasia, and produced fluctuations in atmospheric pressure strong enough to be detected by the recently invented barographs in Britain. Over the next few weeks, night skies over Europe and western Russia glowed brightly enough for people to read by. In the United States, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and the Mount Wilson Observatory observed a decrease in atmospheric transparency that lasted for several months.
The size of the blast was later estimated to be between 10 and 15 megatons. Until this year members of numerous expeditions have failed to find any remains of the object that caused the event.

Quick! Somebody call Art Bell!
uh, oh. when is the bus from tinfoil city due?
I first heard about it on coast to coast. You might say they pinged me...
Your tax rubles at work.
Here's a tip: Avoid the "black oil."
deer stone aka (enigma-/John's) stone
The discovery of a mysterious boulder (enigma-stone, deer-stone, Johns stone) in the epicentre of the Tunguska catastrophe in 1972 imparts a particular acuteness to the development of this trend and gives an unexpected turn to the study of the Tunguska meteorite. The boulder is a quarz-disseminated conglomerate-gravelite sand-stone belonging to highly strong sedimentationrock consisting by 98.5% of SiO2. There are evident signs of its high speed deceleration in the local permafrost sedimentations after the intrusion of the boulder into the soil from above at the calculated velocity of not less than 500 m/sec. The direction of the intrusion coincides with the probable azimuths of the trajectory projection of the Tunguska cosmic body.
Goofy Russian tin-foilers. But in any event, the world was oh so lucky on that one. Imagine if that baby had hit in the English Channel or on the eastern seaboard somewhere.
They've been saying that for years. I saw an OLD UFO show on the Sci Fi channel explaining how they found an alien craft.
I wonder what brought this up? If they did, that is soooo creepy. I don't believe in UFO's, unless they're demons or something.
Yup. If you can find a copy of "The Fire Came By" it's well worth a read.
I expect they are demons or something...
Especially during the Cold War...
Uh oh, here comes the tin foil hat gang.
Is there a tinfoil ping list???
There was a good book written about this event in the late 70's called "The Fire Came By". This was a good enough book to have a permanent place on my bookshelf. Asimov does the introduction.
Amazing to see the directions this is going these days.
Yes. That's why it's in the key words...
It must be near Roswell, Siberia.
"The Truth is Out There"
Way way way out there...
You mean other than the FBIs?
This is good. It gives weirdos something to do so they don't bother normal people. If only more liberals could be distracted that easily.
I propose we send a delegation of monitors to Russia to make sure they don't salt the mountain. ;>
Trust everyone, but brand yer calves.
Well it if had come in 10-11 hours later that would have put that sucker right into the Baltic. Europe would have been toasted.
We got lucky
Implication from the the title: They recovered an alien space craft.
Most likely explanation: Piece of large IRON meteorite.
I remember reading somewhere (and some of you science-literate types correct me if I'm wrong, that in order for a 10 megaton explosion like that one to be formed the meteorite would have had to have been vaporized in the atmosphere.
