The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is a broad region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
As you can imagine, conspiracy Bermuda Triangle theories run wild, especially from UFO enthusiasts.
The scientific community’s latest finding on the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle is actually not a new theory at all, but one that is now further validated by a new discovery.
Despite the fact that science has an ongoing investigation into the Bermuda Triangle mystery, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association says the Bermuda Triangle is entirely bunk.
Despite the doubters, scientists say they’ve discovered a series of craters that explain the phenomena, which they believe to be very real.
The craters they’ve found are actually nowhere near the Bermuda Triangle. They’re off the coast of Norway. The half mile-wide craters are 150 feet deep and are believed to have been created by methane building up and popping under the seabed.
Researchers from the Arctic University of Norway told the Sunday Times that “multiple giant craters exist on the sea floor in an area in the west-central Barents Sea … and are probably a cause of enormous blowouts of gas. The crater area is likely to represent one of the largest hotspots for shallow marine methane release in the Arctic.”
They are now looking at whether the bursting of these bubbles is sufficient to sink ships and will present their findings next month.
Igor Yelstov, from the Trofimuk Institute, said: “There is a version that the Bermuda Triangle is a consequence of gas hydrates reactions. They start to actively decompose with methane ice turning into gas. It happens in an avalanche-like way, like a nuclear reaction, producing huge amounts of gas. That makes the ocean heat up and ships sink in its waters mixed with a huge proportion of gas.”
