BERMUDA TRIANGLE: THE GREATEST WONDER & THE GREATEST FEAR The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft and surface vessels allegedly disappeared mysteriously. Popular culture has attributed these disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings.
The Triangle areaThe boundaries of the triangle cover the Straits of Florida, the Bahamas and the entire Caribbean island area and the Atlantic east to the Azores. The more familiar triangular boundary in most written works has as its points somewhere on the Atlantic coast of Miami; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and the mid-Atlantic island of Bermuda, with most of the accidents concentrated along the southern boundary around the Bahamas and the Florida Straits.
r History. OriginsThe earliest allegation of unusual disappearances in the Bermuda area appeared in a September 16, 1950 Associated Press article by Edward Van Winkle Jones. Two years later, Fate magazine published "Sea Mystery At Our Back Door", a short article by George X. In the late 60's and early 70-ies of XX century, numerous publications have appeared on the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle. In 1974, Charles Berlitz published the book "The Bermuda Triangle”, in which descriptions of various mysterious disappearances in the area were collected . The book became a bestseller, and it was after the publication of the theory of the unusual properties of the Bermuda Triangle has become particularly popular.
In 1975, Lawrence David Kusche published a book "The Bermuda Triangle: Myth and Reality", in which he tried to prove that anything supernatural and mysterious in this area is not happening. This book is based on years of research documents and interviews with eyewitnesses who identified numerous factual errors and inaccuracies in the publications of the supporters of the existence of the Bermuda Triangle mystery.
TheoriesSupporters of the secrets of the Bermuda Triangle launched dozens of different theories to explain the mysterious phenomena which, in their opinion, are taking place there. These theories include assumptions about the kidnapping of ships from outer space aliens or residents of Atlantis, moving through a hole in time, or faults in space and other paranormal causes. Other authors try to give a scientific explanation for these phenomena.style.rotation
Gulf StreamThe Gulf Stream is an ocean current that originates in the Gulf of Mexico and then flows through the Straits of Florida into the North Atlantic. In essence, it is a river within an ocean, and, like a river, it can and does carry floating objects. It has a surface velocity of up to about 2.5 metres per second (5.6 mi/h).A small plane making a water landing or a boat having engine trouble can be carried away from its reported position by the current.False-color image of the Gulf Stream flowing north through the western Atlantic Ocean. Methane hydratesAn explanation for some of the disappearances has focused on the presence of vast fields of methane hydrates (a form of natural gas) on the continental shelves. Laboratory experiments carried out in Australia have proven that bubbles can, indeed, sink a scale model ship by decreasing the density of the water; any wreckage consequently rising to the surface would be rapidly dispersed by the Gulf Stream. It has been hypothesized that periodic methane eruptions (sometimes called "mud volcanoes") may produce regions of frothy water that are no longer capable of providing adequate floatability for ships. If this were the case, such an area forming around a ship could cause it to sink very rapidly and without warning. InfrasoundIt is assumed that under certain conditions in the sea infrasound can be generated , which has an impact on the crew, causing panic, as a result of which they leave the ship. The most famous case is mentioned in connection with the Bermuda Triangle, is the disappearance of the managers of the five bombers, torpedo-type "Evendzher. These aircraft on Dec. 5, 1945 took off from the base of the naval forces of the USA in Fort Lauderdale back and never returned. These fragments were not found.
The loss of the ship and 306 crew and passengers without a trace sometime after 4 March 1918 remains the single largest loss of life in U.S. Naval history not directly involving combat. The cause of the ship's loss is unknown.
