The Bermuda Triangle is a region in the Atlantic Ocean touching on Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and Florida. The Bermuda Triangle is also referred to as Devil’s Triangle because many airplanes and ships have mysteriously disappeared in the region, without any trace. A writer named Vincent Gaddis gave the region its name in a magazine in 1964, however he was not the first to write about the mysterious disappearances. An article was published in 1950 referencing unusual disappearances, and again in 1952 when the article “Sea Mystery at Our Back Door” covered the loss of five Navy TBM Avenger bombers. Many theories exist to provide possible explanations for the disappearances that continue today, but no explanation has been proven.
1. Despite the disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle, airplanes and ships continue to fly or sail through the region frequently.
2. Some explanations for the mysterious disappearances have included UFO (unidentified flying object) theories, suggesting alien interference.
3. Some theorists have linked the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle to the lost city of Atlantis.
4. Some investigations into the Bermuda Triangle disappearances indicate that it has been human error or simply bad weather to blame.
5. Some theories about the disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle have included pirate interference, hurricanes, magnetic abnormalities, deliberate sinking of ships, and huge waves.
