On this week’s episode of Space Case, we’re attempting to crack an unsolved case. Almost 30 years ago, a group of survivalist were out on an instructor lead hike through the Khamar Daban; a mountain range in Southern Siberia. While this group was on their trek, another group nearby was on a similar route and would meet up at checkpoints to update on progress and check supplies. After a terrible unplanned storm hit the area, one group didn’t make it to the next checkpoint, or the one after that, or the one after that… What happens next, is a wild ride. Listen in and find out!
