The Bermuda Triangle – it's where ships go to disappear. Mysterious circumstances have long been considered inexplicable but research off the coast of Norway may offer an explanation at last.
The legendary Bermuda Triangle – it's where ships go to disappear. The mysterious circumstances have been long considered inexplicable, but new research off the coast of Norway may offer an explanation after all.
Scientists at Arctic University of Norway dove deep into Barents Sea and what they found could offer a viable scientific reason behind Bermuda Triangle phenomenon.
Multiple giant craters exist on sea floor in an area in west-central Barents Sea and are probably a cause of huge blowouts of gas.
Methane leaking up through natural gas deposits caused craters, meaning that there was not just gradual erosion but explosions of gas too. It would be enough to take out a ship or even an airplane flying overhead. But, the research does not prove that these gas explosions are common – let alone they exist – in the area that Bermuda Triangle encompasses, between Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Some say there is nothing mysterious about Bermuda Triangle at all. Others blame the strange disappearances on region's tendency for tropical storms.
