NASA scientists calculated the size and destructive power of the Tunguska meteorite that fell on the territory of the Krasnoyarsk Territory on June 30, 1908.
As the authors of the study told, the calculations were based on one of the latest mathematical models describing the fall of a meteorite. The basis was based on eyewitness accounts, the extent of damage and the absence of a crater. Total turned out - about 50 million possible scenarios of the event.

“Most likely, the meteorite fell apart and exploded at an altitude of about 12-17 kilometers, so the diameter of the affected area was an impressive 5-12 kilometers,” wrote Lorien Wheeler of the Ames Research Center in the Ames article in the article.
Also, astronomers were able to estimate the approximate power of the explosion, the speed of the asteroid, its size and mass, as well as density. It turned out that the Tunguska meteorite was somewhat larger than previously thought. The probable diameter was about 75 meters, and the strength of the explosion was close to the most powerful Soviet and American thermonuclear bombs - more than 20 megatons. For example, one atomic bomb of just 21 kilotons was enough to destroy the Japanese city of Nagasaki. Tunguska meteorite was a thousand times more powerful.
The consequences of the explosion could be much more serious, do not fall into a deserted celestial body of the Siberian taiga. As a result, as established by scientists, only about 30 people were affected by the meteorite, three of whom died. This was presumably due to the impact of the blast wave, or burns that eyewitnesses could have received, in particular, as a result of forest fires that occurred at the site of the explosion.

Scientists expect that the study should draw attention to the study of such cosmic events in order to develop measures to protect against such threats.
