075 – Away Game – The Tunguska Event

Episode 075 – In the summer of 1908 a huge explosion levelled over 2000 square kilometres in Siberia. The event happened near the remote Tunguska river. It created the loudest sound ever heard by human ears and was visible through Europe and Asia. Locals reported seeing a large fireball rumbling across the sky before the blast. To this day, almost 111 years later, the exact cause of Tunguska Event remains a mystery.
