Experts believe that in 1959 the government of the USSR carried out prohibited tests of atomic weapons, in which the R-12 rocket was launched with an imitation of a nuclear strike on the United States.
Mysterious death in the Ural Mountains of nine tourists at the head with Igor Dyatlov in 1959 could be connected with an unsuccessful test launch of a Soviet rocket. The Ural engineer and researcher Vadim Skibinsky came to this conclusion, writes the online newspaper Kommersant.
The same version was supported by the tracker Sergei Sorgin, who personally took part in the search for the missing “Dyatlovites” and wrote several books on this topic. In his opinion, Skibinsky came closest to unraveling the tragedy, which haunted many experts who dealt with the details of the incident for 63 years.
The version of the Ural engineer relies on a previously missed detail – near the tent from which the participants of the Dyatlov campaign fled, traces were found 10 meters from the tent, which, despite the weather conditions, remained in the snow for almost a month. Skibinsky explained this by saying that this could only happen if the tourists were walking on wet snow, which later froze again, although the weather conditions at the time of the tragedy did not at all imply snow melting.
At the same time, the probability that a sharp thermal impact was exerted on the snow is practically zero, since, as is known, the tent survived and did not show signs of fire. In this regard, the expert came to the conclusion that the snow on the slope where the traces were found was flooded with chemical reagents: moreover, they were sprayed in large quantities from the air.
“The absence of traces suggests that the snow was flooded near the tent. But this is not may be a natural phenomenon, because then the snow would also have melted in the place where the tracks begin. Tourists could not fly over such a distance. This means that this is a man-made phenomenon, “Skibinsky said.
According to him, for such a result, up to 15 tons, for example, of nitric acid, which could have been brought by an unsuccessfully launched R-12 rocket, would have been required. The fact is that at that time the USSR was striving to achieve nuclear parity with the United States, so the country's leadership was testing a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead to America. Such a rocket could be the R-12, which was light enough and could be launched from a small launch pad. But in 1958 there was a ban on testing atomic weapons, so the test launch was carried out in strict secrecy, the expert recalled.
“According to official data, the site began operating in 1962, but I suspect that in fact it “Before, such a large object could not be built so quickly immediately after the lifting of the moratorium. Tests of the R-12 were code-named Operation Rose. It was the cause of the death of the Dyatlovites,” Skibinsky is sure.
He believes that the R-12 missile had damage to the fuel compartment, which caused it to detonate near the tourist camp.This also explains the fact that the “Dyatlovites” were terribly scared of something, as they got out of the cut tent without shoes and top clothes, leaving ammunition and supplies.Apparently, according to Skibinsky, shortly after the unsuccessful test, the military went to the scene, found a tent and frozen corpses of tourists there, after which they simply covered their tracks, because of which the investigators many dy and failed to establish the cause of the tragedy.
