UFO Secret: Tunguska: The Russian Roswell
UFO Secret: Tunguska: The Russian Roswell UFO-TV 55 min Prod. Direc. Henry Kirk, Al Stillman (1997 / 2006, 33 min + 22 min of interviews and extras)
An account of the 1908 Tunguska explosion from one of the last survivors. The account was supposedly covered up by the KGB and the Russian government, and the film claims that the event is related to the 1947 Roswell incident in New Mexico. The official explanation was a comet, but the movie claims there is evidence of radiation after the blast (with radiation sickness in the area – whether this can really be confirmed today is questionable), and geomagnetic storms before the explosion. An approaching comet could have presented some of the variable lighting in the sky, however. The film claims that, with the KGB gone, the new Russian government should be more receptive to the idea that “the truth is out there.” The film does show some stunning shots of the crash site, which did not leave a crater. The explosion was over a hundred times as strong as Hiroshima. The film ends with a reference to Roswell. There are also interviews with Don Yoemans (JPL Sr. Research) and Paul Chadas (NASA).
Update: Tuesday June 26, 2007
Italian researchers are exploring Lake Cheko, five miles from the crash impact site, for physical evidence from the impact. The 164-foot-deep lake might have been formed by the impact.
