Underwater excavations and welcoming the Big Meteorite
This chapter will answer a number of questions. What did fishermen see in Lake Chebarkul? How did the eight-meter ice hole appear? If it was a meteorite fall, what kind of a meteorite was it and where did it lie? How could it be recovered without damaging the lake? What is the next step with the meteorite?
