An Italian team of researchers are said to have new clues in solving the 1908 Tunguska impact problem. Their work is to be released soon. Here's a brief material on the subject (I confess it is the first time I see a picture of the locale).

The Tunguska problem (http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/sci/tech/newsid_1628000/1628806.stm)

I'd like to point out that, according to my records, the first expedition to the spot of the fall, led by russian mineralogist Leonid Kulik (1883-1942) was set in 1921, not in 1930, as the article states.
