Nikola Tesla would have carried out an experiment of wireless transmission of energy by the ground which would have produced an explosion in Siberia, on June 30, 1908, destroying in particular 2 000 km2 of forest.

The link of Tesla’s name with this tragic event is not based on any facts, even though Tesla did indeed conduct experiments in wireless energy transmission through the ground from thousands of kilometers away, just as he caused mini-earthquakes in New York.

The Russian testimonies of the time indicate that the explosion followed the crossing of a fireball in the sky; the disintegration of an asteroid, as the origin of the Tunguska event, is not in doubt.
