I’ve been meaning to post this one for a while. I love it!
Dr. Yuri Labvin, president of the Tunguska Spatial Phenomenon Foundation, insists that an alien spacecraft sacrificed itself to prevent a gigantic meteor from slamming into the planet above Siberia on June 30, 1908.
The result was was the Tunguska event, a massive blast estimated at 15 megatons that downed 80 million trees over nearly 100 square miles. Eyewitnesses reported a bright light and a huge shock wave, but the area was so sparsely populated no one was killed.
Most scientists think the blast was caused by a meteorite exploding several miles above the surface. But Labvin thinks quartz slabs with strange markings found at the site are remnants of an alien control panel, which fell to the ground after the UFO slammed into the giant rock.
I think given the intense heat that obviously hit there, there’s no telling what it did to the area. If it was a meteorite, it blew up. No telling what happens when something like that gets so hot it explodes. So, quartz, which is typically created under intense heat, falls neatly into the scenario. Strange markings on it would possibly result from the explosion. I see nothing so far that leads me to believe anything out of the ordinary has resulted from an explosion that we can not recreate.
But it sure sounds cool.
