Tunguska Revisited

Sandia supercomputers offer new explanation of Tunguska disaster. Smaller asteroids may pose greater danger than previously believed

"The asteroid that caused the extensive damage was much smaller than we had thought,” says Sandia principal investigator Mark Boslough of the impact that occurred June 30, 1908. “That such a small object can do this kind of destruction suggests that smaller asteroids are something to consider. Their smaller size indicates such collisions are not as improbable as we had believed."
