The mystery of the Bermuda Triangle has been solved: researchers suggest that the bad reputation of this place on the Earth's map may be associated with a completely natural phenomenon.

This information was reported by BBC Science, reports URA-Inform.

History of the Bermuda Triangle

This stretch of sea between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda is known for mysterious disappearances of planes and boats. Title «Bermuda Triangle» acquired in the twentieth century, when they began to associate it with mysterious incidents. For many years it has been claimed that ships and planes that enter this area are more likely to crash than any other location. One of the most famous incidents occurred in 1945 when Flight 19 — a group of five US Navy bombers on a training flight. This incident, as well as other disasters associated with the Bermuda Triangle, caused its bad reputation.

Scientific opinion

In 1975, Larry Kusche published a book in which he debunked the myths surrounding the region. He explained that reports about the Bermuda Triangle were inaccurate or exaggerated. Kushe concluded that the number of incidents in this region is not much different from other parts of the world. However, there are many theories to explain the mysterious occurrences in the Bermuda Triangle, both natural and unnatural. One natural explanation is that methane bubbles released from the seafloor can capsize ships. However, studies have not found significant methane emissions in recent years.

Recent studies have shown that storms in this region can create waves up to 30 meters high, which can cause shipwrecks. However, there is no evidence yet that such waves occur specifically in the Bermuda Triangle. There is also a theory about magnetic anomalies that could deflect the compasses of pilots and sailors, but no such anomalies have yet been recorded in the region. Despite the large volume of air and sea traffic in the Bermuda Triangle, as well as frequent hurricanes, statistics do not show an unusual number of plane crashes and shipwrecks.

However, the Bermuda Triangle's reputation remains poor due to the attention it receives receives a lot of attention in the media and among fans of conspiracy theories. Their confidence that many disasters are happening in this region is most likely caused not so much by real events as by myths and stereotypes that have formed over time.
