Book Review: The Tunguska Fireball - Universe Today
Dream up an hypothesis and envelop it with supporting evidence and you're well on the way to contributing to the scientific process. Given that nature surrounds us with a veritable nirvana of wonders, this reasoning process serves us well. A case in point - many years ago, bright flashes in the sky, followed by powerful explosions, teased our imaginations and brain power then and today. Surendra Verma in his book The Tunguska Fireball plays part detective, part historian and part scientist in presenting some highly speculative yet nevertheless plausible reasons for this natural wonder. Scientific processes by their nature are based on fact, but read this and you can judge for yourself how close imagination is its parody.
