Scientists : Tunguska meteorite still hit the ground

(ORDO NEWS) — The Tunguska disaster still continues to interest scientists, and is also a mystery of the last century.

They suggested that the meteorite could hit the ground, deciding to find traces of the resulting crater. Scientist said that he was fond of this topic in his school years, and then began to explore meteorite craters.

In 2008, the international expedition did not bring the desired results, and the next one was being prepared for many years.

Another hypothesis was related to the crater formed after the explosion on the surface.

In ancient times, there was a paleo volcano at this place, the crater of which it swallowed up and razed to the ground.

They managed to find peat heaps with coals and wood residues, which were immediately sent to the laboratory for analysis.
