Since then, numerous attempts have been made to unravel this mystery. The public has often read headlines that said: "The Great Enigma of the Tunguska Meteorite Has Been Solved!" But such statements were premature. Only now do we have the opportunity to solve the problem by harnessing the discovered facts and building a multidisciplinary picture of the Tunguska event. No more guessing and flawed hypotheses - just objectivity, empiricism, and taking into account all reliable data." "The Tunguska explosion has been publicized in the popular press and scientific journals for decades, yet both the general public and the science community still seem unaware of the complicated details of this event. However, the subject is not unfathomable. In this book you will find out about the discoveries made by past investigations, as well as about the questions we still have to answer to discover the true nature of the Tunguska catastrophe." --Book Jacket."@en ;
