Christmas Lecture
Andrew Lound will give the traditional SAS Christmas Lecture:
In 1908 a fireball raced through the deep blue skies of northern Russia, ending with a massive explosion. Witnessed by numerous people, this event became known as one of the greatest mysteries of the 20th century. The name "Tunguska" has conjured up thoughts of alien spacecraft, black holes, antimatter and fear, when 2150 square kilometres of Siberian forest were laid waste in a blinding instant by an explosion 1000 times as powerful as the Hiroshima bomb. In this dramatic telling of the Tunguska story brought up to date with the latest research, the whole incident is investigated with rare images, video and a dramatic, entertaining performance. Will you ever feel safe again?
