The Tunguska event is considered to be one of the most mysterious and breath-taking events in human history. It happened in 1908 when a large explosion caused by an unearthly object shocked the public.
The explosion incinerated completely around 500,000 acres of the Siberian forest and leveled literally everything with the ground. It was later calculated by scientists that the Tunguska explosion could have been at least 1,000 times more devastating than the atomic bomb that hit Hiroshima. After the crash there was no tangible evidence that gave scientists the opportunity to correctly determine the origin of the explosion. This is why it remains mysterious even today.
However, some conspiracy theorists had their own opinions about it. Some of the most bizarre explanations include a mysterious Martian UFO that landed there and eventually self-destroyed via nuclear explosion. Others believe that it was actually a mini black hole that zipped through Earth. Certain conspiracists even assume that the scientist Nicola Tesla and his “death ray” were responsible for the Tunguska explosion.
Yet, the most reliable explanation to this phenomenon supported by recently discovered evidence is that an asteroid supposedly hit the Earth in that particular year but its remains were never discovered due to the lack of advanced technology.
