Were nine hardy skiers who died in the Siberian snow 55 years ago driven MAD by freak wind patterns? Author claims modern weather science has SOLVED the 1959 'Dyatlov Pass' incident

New research into rare weather phenomena has suggested that a 'perfect storm' could have struck the campers in the night, panicking them so much that they would have fled the tent, and fallen victim to the brutal cold before they came to their senses.

Donnie Eichar, who spent five years researching the incident, and undertook the dangerous trek himself, believes that a wind phenomenon called a Karman vortex street could have produced a terrifying, powerful sound which is proven to induce irrational fear in humans.

It's an interesting idea, that I covered in part in an earlier thread, and begins to look very convincing, though I think it will be difficult to pronounce QED on this as the evidence and culprit is wind, thin air. But this effect combined with a snowslip looks likely to be the real deal, certainly far more realistic, though less interesting, than yeti or UFO.

That was my conclusion to, a freak wind storm.

I used to stay in Karman Vortex Street!  I blame my baldness on it.
