The Bermuda Triangle is the biggest myth of all time. Also known as the Devil’s Triangle, the Bermuda Triangle is an area in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where many aircraft and ships disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
The earliest suggestions of a disappearance in the area was reported on 17 September, 1950, where there was an article published in the Miami Herald, an associated press written by Edward Van Winkle Jones. One of the cases written by famous articles included the loss of Flight 19, a group of 5 Navy torpedo bombers who flew over the area on a training mission. This case is what made the public familiar to the area of the Bermuda Triangle.
“We are entering white water, nothing seems right. We don’t know where we are, the water is green, no white.”The flight leader of Flight 19.
When Christopher Colombus sailed through the area on his voyage to the New World he reported a great flame of fire (which was probably a meteor) that crashed into the sea one night and that this light had appeared in the distance to his sight a few weeks later. He also reported that the Bermuda Triangle was one of the few places on the Earth where the true north and magnetic north Poles had lined up.
An infamous tradegy had occurred in March 1918 when a navy cargo ship with over 300 men and 10 000 tonnes of Manganese sank somewhere between Barbados and Chesapeake Bay. They never sent out an SOS distress call despite being equipped to do so. Extensive investigations also found no wreckage of the area. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson later said: “Only God and the sea knows what happened to the great ship”
In 1941, two of the Cyclop’s sister ships similarly vanished without trace along the same route. Is this an occurrence or simply just a coincidence?
After these incidents many theories have been created from a variety of different writers. Sea Monsters? Aliens? Time Warps? Reverse Gravitational Fields? These strokes captivated the public, and is what made the Bermuda Triangle so famous. It was such an interesting topic to talk about, and to bring shivers to the public.
The fact that many of these occurrences were unknown also adds to the theory.
Realistically speaking, even in the light of flight radar, live tracking and air control communication there are still mysterious occurrences even occurring today. This could be due to some sort of miscommunication, a pilot or sailor not trained up to date or issues with the aircraft/ship model. As a matter of fact, dozens of ships and aircraft still fly over the Bermuda Triangle every single day and there has been no recent cases of exceptional and unknown losses. When 1000 aircrafts fly over the Bermuda Triangle and we can explain what happened to 990 of the aircraft, we can’t really deem that the other 10 were all eaten up by sea serpents.
However, what we have recently discovered is the “Bermuda Triangle of Space”. This is an area of the South Atlantic Ocean that has caused havoc amongst spacecraft and satellites- and this one does have scientific proof.
