Présentation de l'éditeur

The purpose of the book is a dual one: to detail the nature and results of Tunguska investigations in the former USSR and present-day CIS, and to destroy two long-standing myths still held in the West. The first concerns alleged 'final solutions' that have ostensibly been found in Russia or elsewhere. The second concerns the mistaken belief that there has been little or no progress in understanding the nature of the Tunguska phenomenon. All this is treated by the author in a scholarly and responsible manner. Although the book does present certain unusual findings of Russian and Ukrainian scholars, it is important to stress that this is not a sensational book; it is, rather, a serious exposition of the results of rational investigations into a difficult scientific problem. We are demonstrating the true complexity of the problem that is now entering its second century of existence. Simple meteoritic models cannot explain all the characteristics of this complicated event, and therefore certain so-called 'unconventional hypotheses' about the nature of the Tunguska explosion are to be considered as well. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Biographie de l'auteur

Vladimir V. Rubtsov was born at 1948 in Kharkov, then the USSR (now independent Ukraine). He received his M.S. degree in computer science in 1972 and after that joined the laboratory of Dr. A. V. Zolotov in Kalinin (now Tver), where for three years studied the problem of the Tunguska explosion. Received his Ph.D. degree in the philosophy of science from the Institute of Philosophy of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR (Moscow, Russia), having defended in 1980 the doctoral thesis "Philosophical and Methodological Aspects of the Problem of Extraterrestrial Civilizations" (the first of its kind in the former USSR). Dr. Rubtsov's professional fields are methodology of interdisciplinary research, sociology of science and technology, and general epistemology. He is currently Director of the Research Institute on Anomalous Phenomena (RIAP), as well as the Editor of its newsletter RIAP Bulletin. Dr. Rubtsov has authored some 120 scientific and popular-science articles in the Soviet, post-Soviet, and foreign press, as well as two scientific monographs: The Problem of Extraterrestrial Civilizations (with A. D. Ursul, Kishinev: "Shtiintsa" ["Science" the publishing house of the Moldavian Academy of Sciences], 1984 & 1987) and UFOs and Modern Science (with Y. V. Platov, Moscow: "Nauka" ["Science" the publishing house of the Russian Academy of Sciences], 1991). Dr. Rubtsov is a full member of the Russian Academy of Cosmonautics, an associate member of the Society for Scientific Exploration, USA, a member of the Expert Group on Anomalous Atmospheric Phenomena of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and a member of the SETI Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Le point sur un mystère. 9 décembre 2009
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Ce livre offre 29 photographies dont certaines en quadrichromie, 7 cartes et 13 graphiques. Les différents chapitres se concluent par des notes et références. Au total, il y en a 249. Ce qui corse l'affaire est que près de 170 sont de source russe, c'est-à-dire publiées en cyrillique... Le Dr. Rubtsov met le doigt sur une évidence qui échappe souvent : la méconnaissance des sources russes dues à l'incompréhension de la langue.
L'affaire de la Tunguska est fascinante en tant que tel. C'est grâce à un homme d'une ténacité incroyable : le Dr. Leonid Kulik que revient l'honneur d'être le découvreur de l'énormité des dégâts dus à, semble-t-il, l'impact d'un corps céleste sur cette région : 2.150 km² ravagés !
Le Dr. Rubtsov détaille avec précision les explorations plus qu'aventureuses et difficiles pour les hommes qui les entreprennent. Il en va de même pour les premières hypothèses qui émergent : météores ou comètes ? L'observation attentive de la taïga et de ces futaies - qui resteront à jamais l'image la plus bizarre de l'énigme - indique déjà en 1960 qu'il y a des présomptions pour deux axes de chute. Le bolide se serait-il brisé en haute altitude ? Mais aucun débris ou éléments du bolide ne sont trouvés. Raison pour laquelle l'hypothèse du Colonel Alexander Kazantsev, émise dans une courte nouvelle intitulée « L'explosion » et proposant une explosion atomique, plane toujours dans les esprits.

Ce livre complète heureusement le premier ouvrage de référence (trouvé ici aussi bien sûr) : "The fire came by' de Baxter & Atkins (1969). Il existe des dizaines d'autres ouvrages majeurs, surtout russes et des centaines d'études essentiellement disponibles sur le web.
Si cet événement extraordinaire, toujours inexpliqué formellement excite la sagacité de scientifiques et passionnés du sujet partout dans le monde, le grand public abreuvé d'idioties télévisuelles en est très peu au fait. Pas grave, le lecteur pourra échanger ses avis avec une communauté connectée capable d'apprécier la question ; en attendant peut-être de réserver son expédition sur place, avec un T.O. local qui a flairé le bon filon !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lecture de The Tunguska Mystery 8 novembre 2010
Format:Relié
Très agréable à lire, les chapitres sont courts et bien synthétisés. Les illustrations permettent au lecteur d'avoir une bonne compréhension des lieux et des personnes.
Après qu'une description nécessaire de l'historique des missions sur les lieux de l'incident, nous pouvons nous faire une première idée des conditions de voyage et du paysage alentour.
Quand nous commençons juste à sentir l'atmosphère locale nous découvrons une description captivante d'un événement incroyable extraordinaire. Puis, nous commençons à étudier les enquêtes et nous découvrons alors des problèmes très complexes, trop fantastiques pour qu'ils soient de la science-fiction.
Ma langue maternelle est le Français, mais lire ce le livre est plaisant et très attrayant. Je connaissais le phénomène de Tunguska mais j'ai appris beaucoup plus en peu de temps. Merci Vladimir d'avoir décidé d'écrire "The Tunguska Mystery", c'est un outil majeur pour les ufologues.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Comprehensive Treatment of a Complex - and Still Unsolved - Mystery 27 octobre 2009
Par Ian Dubin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
On June 30, 1908, on a sunny Siberian morning at 00 H 14 M GMT (7:14 am local time) something exploded in the skies over the Podkamennaya (Lower Stony) Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai of Russia. The blast blew out windows 200 km away and was heard more than 800 km from the site. The seismic wave was recorded as far away as Germany and the atmospheric pressure wave was measured on barographs in London. The nearest eyewitnesses (30 km to the south-southeast) had their shelter blown away, their local area set afire, and reported a second sun in the sky. Approximately 2100 sq km of forest was radially flattened and then burned. At the epicentre, trees remained standing but were stripped of branches - burnt telegraph poles. The blast occurred at some 6 to 8 km altitude. There is no impact crater.

I became fascinated by the Tunguska Event nearly half a century ago, reading about it in 'Boy's Life' or some such and I am not alone, as it has become an enduring Global mystery, familiar to hundreds of millions, and a staple of popular western culture seeking the undefinable. A true X-File. This morning, (26 October 2009) a Google search on 'Tunguska event' turned up over 59,000 hits. Not surprising for an occurrence that has been the focus of intense curiosity, speculation and (as Dr. Rubtsov has detailed) an extraordinary investigative effort by Soviet and Russian scientists over the last hundred years.

Dr. Rubtsov's book is an encyclopedic compilation and a well written precis of the scientific records of that marvellous research. From the 1921 Kulik expedition searching for evidence of a meteorite impact (which was not found) to the Centenary conferences held in 2008 to discuss the event (there were more than half a dozen of them), Dr. Rubtsov has catalogued the incredible effort put into the problem over the last century, both by independent researchers and also by the official Soviet (later Russian) Scientific Academies. Much of the content and references have not been widely documented in the West prior to this publication and that is not surprising, since most of the citations refer to previous documentation only available in Russian. It is an excellent reference book and a worthy addition to the libraries of all anomalists.

More than that, it is clear from Dr. Rubtsov's writing that he holds a huge 'affection' (for lack of a better word), not only for the still unsolved mystery of the Tunguska Event (which he has been personally involved in for nearly four decades), but also for the vast army of scientific researchers (it was a revelation to me just how vast this army was) who have spent large proportions of their professional lives in trying to make sense of this extraordinary happening. He writes with humour and a subtle wit. The subtlety is not misplaced, since during the Soviet era, subtlety was necessary in addressing the problem. The wrong inference published by an open-minded scientist could have earned him a one way ticket to Siberia and a lifetime spent contemplating the mystery from some nearby Gulag. In this respect, Dr. Rubtsov's book should be of interest not only to anomalists, but also to historians and others interested in the evolution of the Soviet scientific effort under the paradigm of an (arguably) paranoid totalitarian government.

Dr. Rubtsov is meticulous in detailing the evidence that has emerged of the mystery. Unusual celestial phenomena recorded as remotely as Western Europe beginning three days or earlier before the event. Many hundreds of eyewitness reports from up to 1000 km away of a flying object (or objects) as it (or they) approached Tunguska, records of the hemispheric magnetic storm associated with the explosion, analysis of the felled trees, including blast patterns and 'flash burns', remnant traces of 'hard' or ionizing radiation in the area, the presence of rare earth elements (and other interesting elements) in the zone affected by the explosion, biological mutations and last but not least, barographic records of the explosion that indicate the possibility that it may have had a nuclear origin. The calculated magnitude of the blast itself was 50 megatons, approximately equivalent to the largest hydrogen bomb ever detonated (the so-called Tsar Bomb fired in 1961 in Novaya Zemlya). This was not your garden variety meteorite!

The book is extremely well referenced and I suspect that Dr. Rubtsov's editor, Edward Ashpole, has had a large influence in setting it in it's final form for English publication. I would have liked a more comprehensive index dealing more specifically with subjects as well as with people - perhaps that will come in later printings?

It is apparent that in addition to being a good writer and scientist, above all Dr. Rubtsov is an empiricist. He repeatedly makes the point that there is no use in proposing explanations that do not fit all of the empirical data. From Kulik's 1921 meteorite, through comet cores, cosmic snowflakes, mini-black holes, an antimatter asteroid and even the 'fanciful' explanation proposed by the Russian Science Fiction writer Alexander Kazantsev in 1945 (a distressed alien starship), Dr. Rubtsov has looked at them all. None of them totally fit the data, although some of them have definitely provided insight and guidance for future research.

Does Dr. Rubtsov have his own theory? Indeed he does, but I will not reveal it in this review, partly because I am still trying to get my head around it. Does it fit the data? Well, yes. That should be enough although it probably won't be. There is clearly more work to be done.

Heartily recommended for all of us who do not totally trust or accept the current world view promulgated in the popular media. Heartily recommended for all those who like to look at the evidence (the two - ie the current world view and the evidence - are not, in my opinion, necessarily contiguous). I think that Dr. Rubtsov would probably agree.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I highly recommend this book! 11 septembre 2009
Par Margaret H. Kichline - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Even though I just recently received this book, after going through all the pages briefly, I find it to be very well written which shows the author's true dedication for detailed information, research and inquiries with colleagues. Along with the various hypothesis for this true life mystery, the illustrations and photographs help the reader to understand the great importance of this study. I found this book to be a fine addition to anyone's library. Who does not enjoy a good mystery...a true scientific mystery which may help us someday to protect our Earth from future Tunguska events?!

I wish to add, after reading this book, that it was very enjoyable from beginning to end. Within each chapter, the data and research was most detailed and understandable, along with a touch of humor and many interesting scientific facts!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Tunguska Mystery 29 décembre 2010
Par Frank J. Spitz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book is truly a one of a kind. Nowhere has such an in depth review and analysis been published under one cover prior to this. What makes this book unique is the plethora of publications that were unavailable to the west and written in Russian.

In reading this book, one relizes the complexity of this event. It was not just a extraterrestrial object that "exploded" over Siberia. There were a chain of events leading up to and including the final above ground explosion. The author goes thru great lengths to give a play by play account of what transpired in the minds of various researchers in analyzing the evidence and eliminating various causes.

The authors writting style draws you into the story to such a degree that one is compelled to keep reading, never thinking to put the book down until one is finished.

This is a tour de force of investigative reporting and scientific insite. Anyone even remotely aware or interested in cosmic impacts, meteoritics or just a great scientific mystery will definetly not be dissappointed. Cited are numerous field reports and scientific studies for those interested and able to read them in their original Russian.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The single best book on the subject 24 août 2011
Par Mark Shanks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is the ONE book that addresses the "event" thoroughly and scientifically. Rubtsov goes to the primary (as in Russian) source materials and describes in no small detail what each expedition was looking for, what they found, and what it meant. As you might expect, there were political forces acting, and some scientists were shuffled off to the gulag or died in WWII. But the expeditions, and analyses, continue to this day. I was fascinated at the way Rubtsov states the hypotheses, lays out the physical evidence, reviews connections to previous results, and how that affected future observations and data gathering. It might be too much for some people, but I didn't want to be entertained; I was looking for some hard science facts, and this is the first time I've seen just how much has actually been done. If you're a total newcomer to the subject, or have your mind absolutely made up, this isn't the book for you. But if you're tired of the third and fourth-hand stories, many of them distortions or fiction, and are looking for a comprehensive and "no agenda" approach, FINALLY, here it is. Rubtsov rightfully brushes off armchair theorists - his goal is to lay out the physical evidence, and then describe what that evidence means to each hypothesis: stony meteor, iron meteor, ballistic blast, explosive blast, dirty-snowball comet, icy-rock comet, "cosmic snowflake", abnormal earthquake, antimatter, black hole, you name it and it gets its day in court. Just the facts, too. THIS is the way science texts should be written. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent account of the Tunguska explosion! 23 septembre 2009
Par William I. Mcneff "Bill" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I greatly enjoyed this book. Although I have read several accounts of the Tunguska event, this book brought to light important facts of which I was not aware. Like the careful scientist that he is, Dr. Rubtsov summarizes all of the known facts and gives details of important facets, then shows why all of the current theories of what happened do not adequately explain the facts. He shows that from a scientific standpoint the problem is not solved, but he points the way toward a solution, and believes it is not so far away. The solution toward which the facts point will be startling to many scientists, but as Sherlock Holmes said, when you have eliminated the impossible, the possible, however improbable, must be the solution!
