The Tunguska Event

In June 1908 something exploded over the Siberian forest in the remote Tunguska region. Dr Chris Trayner will describe this event and the implications it has for our future.

In June 1908 something (probably a comet or asteroid) exploded high above the Siberian forest in the remote region of Tunguska. If this had happened over a town or city the consequences would have been disastrous.

Dr Chris Trayner of the University of Leeds will discuss the 'Tunguska Event', explaining how it happened and how knowledge of this could help us protect the future of human society.
