On the first night of February 1959, nine ski-hikers died mysteriously in the mountains of what is now Russia.

The night of the incident, the group had set up camp on a slope, enjoyed dinner, and prepared for sleep - but something went catastrophically wrong because the group never returned.

On February 26, searchers found the hikers' abandoned tent, which had been ripped open from the inside.

Surrounding the area were footprints left by the group, some wearing socks, some wearing a single shoe, some barefoot, all of which continued to the edge of a nearby wood.

That's where the first two bodies were found, shoeless and wearing only underwear.

The scene bore marks of death by hypothermia, but as medical examiners inventoried the bodies, as well as the other seven that were discovered over the months that followed, hypothermia no longer made sense.

In fact, the evidence made no sense at all.

One body had evidence of a blunt force trauma consistent with a brutal assault; another had third-degree burns; one had been vomiting blood; one was missing a tongue, and some of their clothing was found to be radioactive.

Theories floated include KGB-interference, drug overdose, UFO, gravity anomalies, and the Russian version of the Yeti.

Recently, a documentary filmmaker presented a theory involving a terrifying but real phenomenon called "infrasound," in which the wind interacts with the topography to create a barely audible hum that can nevertheless induce powerful feelings of nausea, panic, dread, chills, nervousness, raised heartbeat rate, and breathing difficulties.

The only consensus remains that whatever happened involved an overwhelming and possibly "inhuman force."
