Bermuda Triangle

Bermuda Triangle or so called The Devil’s Triangle is one of the phenomenal people who are on work to reveal its mystery. Many writers described it in many ways some like it covers an area of about 500,00 square miles of ocean off the southeastern tip of Florida or it’s the vertices of Miami, San Juan, Peurto Rico, and Bermuda or it’s a loosely defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean.

But why people are so obsessed with this area, as the Bermuda triangle is where many ships and airplanes have disappeared without any trace. Been a real phenomenon, many theories have been crafted to solve its mystery

  • Paranormal Explanations
    Some claim that it maybe the leftover technology from the lost continent of Atlantis, they say Atlantis story, there is a formation of submerged rock know as Bimini road off to the island of Bimini in The Bahamas, which include in the Triangle.
  • Gulf stream is one of the reasons for those losses, its surface current driven by thermohaline circulation that originates in the Gulf of Mexico, then flows through the Straits of Florida into the North Atlantic, it can carry objects, it has a maximum surface velocity of 6.6 fts/s, a small plane making water landing or a boat having trouble can be flushed out by the current.
  • Some claim it for natural reasons, unusual magnetic anomalies may exist in the area, as compass have magnetic variations with the magnetic poles. Compass north and True north are except for some places
  • Some claim it may be for human stubbornness, many ships and aircraft were lost.
  • Maybe it’s for violent weather, like hurricanes which are powerful storms that form in tropical water and resulted in many loss of lives and caused damage of crores of property.

· KC- 135 Stratotankers, a pair of aircraft collided and crashed into the Atlantic 300 miles west of Bermuda, some writers said that two aircraft did collide there were two distinct crash sites, separated by 160 miles of water whereas Air force investigation report revealed that the second crash site was examined by a search and rescue ship found to be seaweed and wood tangled in an old buoy.

· After gaining fame as the first person to sail solo around the globe, Joshua Slocum disappeared in 1909 from Marta’s Vineyard to South America, it was uncleared but many sources attributed his death to the Bermuda Triangle.

After all those probabilities, still, no one has come to a logical and approved conclusion of the incidents and the concept of the Bermuda Triangle, people keep on researching for proper outcomes.
