“The Bermuda Triangle,” also known as the ‘Devil’s Triangle,’ is a loosely defined 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. Most reputable sources dismiss the idea that there is any mystery.
The vicinity of the Bermuda Triangle is amongst the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world, with ships frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe and the Caribbean islands. Cruise ships and pleasure craft regularly sail through the region, and commercial and private aircraft routinely fly over it.
Popular culture has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings. Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were spurious, inaccurately reported, or embellished by later authors.
Every few years, a story goes viral claiming that experts have finally ‘solved’ the Bermuda Triangle mystery.
Maybe it’s strange hexagonal clouds acting as “air bombs”, rogue waves, or perhaps some freak whirlpools.
But there’s one problem with all of these ‘solutions’ – the Bermuda Triangle doesn’t actually exist, and there is no ‘mystery’ to solve.
There are actually no extra unexplained plane crashes and shipwrecks in the area, despite what you might have heard.
The name Bermuda Triangle refers to a region of ocean bordered by Florida, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico, and it was first brought to public attention back in the 1950s by a journalist named Edward Van Winkle Jones, who wrote a story for the Associated Press about a large number of ships and planes that had disappeared in the region.
