The Mystery of the Tunguska Fireball - Book

For some reason, the Tunguska event of 1908 is one of those mysteries that won't go away. Sci-Fi writers come up with unique stories around this event, and scientists come up with new theories. What we do know is that something came out of the sky on 7:17 a.m. in Siberia and "felled an estimated 60 million trees over 2,150 square kilometers."

The book, "The Mystery of the Tunguska Fireball," tells the story of the event and examines all the theories. One of the wildest theories is that a microscopic black hole collided with the earth. But most scientists think that the event was caused by the airburst of a meteorite or a comet.
