DID A GIANT METEOR DESTROY 100 SQUARE KILOMETERS OF TAIGA?
- The collision of a giant meteor in Siberia's Irkutsk region in
September 2002 destroyed some 100 square kilometers of taiga with an
explosion whose power was equal to that of a medium-sized atom bomb,
according to the head of a scientific expedition. The expedition--
consisting of ten scientists and physicians--had to wait until May to
locate the epicenter of the devastated area, which is in a semi-
mountainous and forested area near Bodaibo, to the northeast of
Irkutsk and Lake Baikal, according to Vadim Tchernobrov, the
"Trees have fallen in a way that occurs specifically in cases
involving very powerful expansive waves over a surface of someone
hundred square kilometers," he explained. "To give you an idea, the
explosion of the meteorite, which disintegrated before it hit the
surface and whose fragments have only caused some 20 craters, has a
power equal to that of a medium-sized nuclear warhead." During the
press conference, scientists displayed images recorded during the
expedition, which show trees cut in half and in some cases burned.

Note: Valery Uvarov, of Russia's National Security Academy claims two
potentially earth destroying meteors have been destroyed in Siberia
by unexplained forces similar to missiles. It seems those who operate
the UFOs may be protecting Earth from catastrophe. The similarity to
the meteor Tunguska explosion of 1908, cannot be ignored. Somebody up
there likes us!
