Expedition Apocalypse

Without warning, a mysterious explosion devastated thousands of square miles of homes, trees and wildlife near central Siberia. No trace of its cause has been discovered. Known as the Tunguska Event, the explosion was so bright that it lit up night skies across Europe for several days. Was it caused by a deadly asteroid, comet, or even violent gases from the volcanic depths below?

Written and directed by Rick Beyer for Veriscope Pictures
Premiered April 8th 2010 on National Geographic Channel's Naked Science series
