Hello List!

I just came across this article, which is of some
significance regarding the recent discussion if the
Tunguska object might have been a fregment of comet

P.Farinella et al: "Probable asteroidal origin of
the Tunguska Cosmic Body"
Astronomy and Astrophysics, Vol. 377, pp. 1081-1097
(published on 21. Oct. 2001)

According to this article, the Tunguska object
probably had an asteroidal orbit (83%) rather than
a cometary orbit (17%).

The abstract is availabe online via ADS:
(Make sure to squeeze the URL in one line...)
