The Tunguska Fireball: Solving One of the Great Mysteries Of The
20th Century - S. Verma, 285 pp., 2005, $14.95

This hardcover import from the UK traces the history of this
phenomenon from its 1908 fiery debut over Siberia until today.
The Tunguska explosion has been compared to that of 1,000 A-
bombs, but even today no one is sure what happened: meteor,
comet, UFO, mini-black hole, or terrestrial eruption?

Verma describes all the prostrated trees, the earth-girding
pressure wave, and curious luminous atmospheric effects.

hunting for the impact point and the search for the expected,
but strangely missing meteoric debris. There is also the

The book's price, too, is inexplicable!


Science Frontiers is a bi-monthly collection of digests of
scientific anomalies in the current literature. Published by the
Sourcebook Project; P.O. Box 107; Glen Arm, MD 21057. Annual
subscription: $8.00.
