March 15 fromlaunched a joint expedition "Komsomolskaya Pravda" and the program of Andrew "Live." The project is unique: for the first time since the death of nine tourists, experts from different profiles will work: prosecutors, surveyors, forensic scientist, snow lawyer specialist … The team will have to reconstruct those terrible events and perhaps closer to it solve the secret of the pass . To do this, "Komsomolskaya Pravda" carries a copy of a life-size tent, Soviet skis and even mannequins.
Expedition members arrive on SundaySverdovsk region, and from there on snowmobiles you go to the mountains. All news from the pass will appear daily on the site kp.ru. Meanwhile on the radio " »Team members – a snow specialist and a forensic scientist – shared their expectations.

"I need a Polryukzak of all kinds of devices to check the" snow version "of death, whether it's a snow shift or an avalanche," said Victor Popovnin, associate professor of the Cryolitology and Glaciology Department of the Geography Faculty, on the radio from Komsomolskaya Pravda(they study the problems of permafrost and everything that has to do with snow and ice). – I fully admit that the tragedy could occur precisely because of natural causes. And on the spot we will be able to understand the density and power of the snow when it pressed on the tent, or this would injure the tourists. People tend to underestimate such versions. Everyone thinks: think, snow is nonsense, a loose substance. Nothing of the kind, snow is very diverse. We will try to calculate the weight that falls on the tent when the snow mass shifts.

Experts must work on the hill where the Dyatlova group set up its camp 60 years ago.
– People probably put a tent on the "plank" of the slope, covered with snow, – the scientist suggested. – Accordingly, if higherthere was a steeper slope, the fact that they made this board when setting up the tent, they naturally weakened the tension of this snow mass & he could get out at one point.

"I don't know if we will be able to restore how everything actually happened, but I hope we will get closer to solving the mystery of the Dyatlov Pass," said Edward., Associate Professor, Department of Forensic Medicine, Russian National Research Medical University. – The main problem is that we use data that cannot be verified. For example, in terms of forensic studies, an incomplete description hinders a full understanding of the damage, and accordingly, the mechanism of injury. On the other hand, there are doubts about the reliability of the damage described. The only thing I can say for sure is that I exclude all mythological theories: , wolverines, herds of voles, etc. I think it cannot even be considered as someone who has at least had an education in ten classes of secondary education.
Remember that in the winter of 1959 in the mountains of the northlost nine tourists campaigning under the leadership of Igor Dyatlov. A month later, rescue workers discovered their cutting tent. And within a mile of a radius of it – five frozen bodies. The bodies of the rest were only found in May, almost all of them were bloody and half-dressed, with terrible injuries. What happened in the mountains is still unclear.

Andrei Malakhov, the host of the "Live" program on the TV channel "Russia 1":
– I think it's better to see it once than to hear it a hundred times. There are more than 80 versions of the tragedy, plus 10 new ones. That is why it seems to me that we can verify the authenticity of one or the other. And the point here is not only that the relatives of the victims live with this pain. A large number of tourists, who still go on a similar route in the neighborhood or there every year, feel stress. And it's our job to turn it off.
