The Bermuda Triangle is an approximately 1 million square kilometers triangular region (bounded in the west by Miami, in the north by Bermuda, and in the southeast by Puerto Rico) in the western part of the North Atlantic where a number of aircraft and ships have been claimed to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Various theories have linked these disappearances to paranormal or extraterrestrial activities. Whatever the case may be, here are ten facts about the legendary location, the Bermuda Triangle, that you should know!

Six planes vanished without a trace…

There have been numerous myths about mysterious disappearances, but the legend of the Bermuda Triangle actually began in earnest when five TBF Avenger bomber planes, known as Flight 19, and a rescue plane (a Martin Mariner aircraft) vanished under extremely mysterious circumstances in the area on December 51945. The five planes disappeared during a routine training mission in the area. The rescue plane sent out to search for the missing planes also vanished without a trace, and none of them were ever found. To this day, it remains uncertain what exactly happened, although there are a variety of credible and controversial theories.

It gained widespread recognition in 1964…

The rumors gained widespread recognition in 1964 when journalist Vincent H. Gaddis wrote about the mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle in Argosy magazine. Ten years later, in 1974, the Bermuda Triangle gained even more attention when Charles Berlitz and J.M. Valentine wrote the book “The Bermuda Triangle.” The book claimed that an unusually large number of boatsships, and aircraft had been lost or crashed for inexplicable reasons in the area known as the Bermuda Triangle.

A plethora of different theories…

Scientists have long tried to provide a logical explanation for the phenomenon, but opinions vary. Some believe that the Bermuda Triangle consists of antimatter and that anything that enters the area simply disintegrates and disappears. Some also suggest that it could be a gateway to a completely different worldCharles Berlitz, co-author of the book “The Bermuda Triangle,” had a more controversial theory – that there is an underwater pyramid responsible for all the disappearances of both ships and aircraft.

It could be the fault of the clouds…

According to a relatively new theory, the hexagonal clouds are the reason for ship and aircraft crashes in the area. The theory states that these hexagonal clouds create “air bombs,” which are essentially air rushing down and striking the ocean at high speeds, shattering any objects in its path. However, there is no scientific evidence to support this, and according to NASA, this type of cloud exists in several places on Earth.

Extraterrestrial involvement…

One of the most talked-about theories revolves around extraterrestrial activity. Over the years, many have claimed to have seen extraterrestrials and other unidentified objects in the area, suggesting that anyone and anything moving within the Bermuda Triangle becomes a target for alien abductions. However, it is known to be untrue that everyone becomes a victim of extraterrestrials since the area is heavily trafficked by boats and aircraft today.

The most logical theory…

Natural scientists have proposed various theories about natural causes for the disappearance of ships and aircraft over the years. The most discussed theory is that the Gulf Stream is involved since it is a strong ocean current that functions like a river in the ocean. The stream is very powerful and can easily carry away a small plane or a boat with potential engine problems. Another theory, proposed by scientist John Hutchison, suggests that there might be some form of “electronic fog” in the area that disrupts all the electronics on ships or aircraft. Several experiments have been conducted to demonstrate the existence of this so-called fog in the area.

Or could it be the haunting of Atlantis…?

But the theories don’t end there. Researcher Scott Stones claimed as recently as 2005 that the lost island of Atlantis lies on the seafloor and is responsible for all the disasters and disappearances. However, Scott Stones is not the first to mention this theory.

Mysterious incidents as recent as 2015…

As recently as 2015, the cargo ship SS El Faro left Florida for its journey to Puerto Rico. The ship disappeared without a trace along the way but was found at the bottom of the Bermuda Triangle a few weeks later. However, the passengers aboard the ship were never found. The only logical explanation that has been given is that the crew perished in the storm believed to have caused the ship to sink.

It could also be entirely normal…

Larry Kusche, the author of the book “The Bermuda Triangle Mystery – Solved” claims that all the theories are nonsense. According to him, all the disasters were completely normal and occurred during severe weather conditions. Many planes and boats pass through the area daily without any accidents, and Kusche believes that everything about the Bermuda Triangle is just a big myth.

The area is not disproportionately accident-prone…

Collected data indicates that a significant portion of these incidents has either been reported incorrectly or their significance has been exaggerated by various authors in the field. Most official authorities claim that the number of incidents and their circumstances resemble those found in any part of the ocean, and statistics show that the world’s most dangerous maritime areas do not include the Bermuda Triangle.
