          Abstract

          This letter presents a new solution for the Tunguska event of June 30th, 1908. The solution has been obtained starting from seismic data, is in fair agreement with the observational evidence, and supports the asteroidal hypothesis for the origin of the Tunguska cosmic body. It is based on an improved model of the hypersonic flow around a small asteroid in the Earth's atmosphere.
