Astrophysicist Wolfgang Kundt has proposed that the Tunguska event was caused by the release and subsequent explosion of 10 million tons of natural gas from within Earth's crust. Other research has supported a geophysical mechanism for the event. Only one river flows from the lake — the Angara River. Thawing of the permafrost will release the gas and accelerate warming — thus, a self-accelerating process will start. Chekaren and I had some difficulty getting out from under the remains of our hut.
The hypothesis has been disputed by other impact crater specialists. The Tunguska Meteorite: History of Investigations, Moscow A. This might not seem like the most interesting fact in the world to you: after all, this is about swamps. Finally all the formalities were settled, people were found, and in 1921 in Kemerovo Siberia was established an international colony. Imagine it as a ring around the sun, a kind of miniature asteroid belt, with a highly elliptical shape, such that the orbit takes the material roughly as close to the sun as the first planet, Mercury, but also far beyond the Earth's orbit. According to the National Geographic, there are two possible reasons that this happened. Chekaren said, 'Can you hear all those birds flying overhead? In the zone of interests of the colony there were: Kemerovo mine, a cable car across the Tom River, unfinished coke-chemical plant, the railway station Kemerovo and 6 more mines.
More recent estimates place Tunguska-sized events at about once every thousand years, with 5 kiloton air bursts averaging about once per year.

The scale is given by an adopted beginning height of 100 km. Once the gas was ignited, the fire streaked along the wick, and then down to the source of the leak in the ground, whereupon there was the explosion.
At that moment I became so hot that I couldn't bear it as if my shirt was on fire; from the northern side, where the fire was, came strong heat. The similar hypothesis has also been proposed as a possible cause of the Tunguska event. They have to have special winter roads specifically for driving in the winter. Boslough and Brown are suggesting that the secret to finding big objects among the Beta Taurids is to look in the other direction - into the night sky where the material would be streaking away from Earth. Some of those remains were found in the Denisova Cave, and the cave was explored during the 1970s. Testimony of Chuchan of Shanyagir tribe, as recorded by I.
