The mysterious Tunguska phenomenon dominates the minds of all fans of the unknown and provokes heated debate scientists for several decades. However, while real explanation of what is actually behind the fiery object flying across the sky in the far 1908 over Siberia, near the Tunguska, imagine no one has. Although more recently, Italian researchers boldly declared to the world that we were able to unravel this mystery.

Irresistible interest of experts from the University of Bologna caused a small lake Checo, located at a distance of about 8 kilometers from the epicenter of the world-famous Bang. The structure of the reservoir, its unusual shape of the bottom, as well as some morphological features have given scientists reason to believe that Checo is a funnel or crater, which was formed as a result of the fall of the Tunguska meteorite.

In order to find out some details of a natural phenomenon, researchers in 2008, completed test drilling in the bottom of the lake Checo, presenting his findings in several scientific articles. However, the most remarkable is that from the bottom of the lake mysterious origins raised something like a fragment of the Tunguska meteorite, which, according to scientists who have significantly helped in uncovering the mysterious incident.

It is worth noting that the global scientific community openly expresses his skepticism to such investigations, insisting on long-rooted version that the Tunguska meteorite was just a comet, the solution is completely still during flight in the Earth’s atmosphere. Although there are many examples of times when science was wrong.
