Authentic Tunguska Wood
The specimen in this scientific display case is from the "Tunguska Event," which happened June 30, 1908. On that date "something" exploded like an giant air blast 8 km above the Tunguska river. About 2,150 square kilometers of Siberian taiga were devastated and 80 million trees were overthrown, with many of them being charred or burnt. It had been unclear for a long time as to whether this historic explosion was due to a comet, an asteroid, or something else.
This authentic Tunguska wood specimen was collected on an expedition to the Tunguska area site, in Siberia, Russia, in 1991.
