Summary
At 7.14 a.m on 30 June 1908 a huge fireball exploded in the Siberian sky. A thousand times the force of the hiroshima bomb, it flattened an area of remote Tunguska forest bigger that Greater London, forming a mushroom cloud that almost reached into space. What was it? A century on, and no one knows for sure. Suspects range from comets or mini black holes into the realms of science fiction and conspiracy, a laser beam fired by extra-terrestrials or an early nuclear experiment. This is an exhilarating ride around one of science's gretest mysteries
