The Bermuda Triangle is a mystery that left a lot of scientists scratching their heads and sailors quaking in their boat boots for years. These last few centuries, a lot of ships and airplanes have disappeared in a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean to Bermuda. Many people believe it is a rare place, even though it is not found on any official map, so you can’t know when you have crossed the line. After so many years, the secret might have been cracked.
There is a new theory centered around underwater craters which explains it all. I use the word ‘could’ loosely, as the the series of craters that have been discovered are actually nowhere near the mythical place, they are in Norway.
“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.”
Also, it is believed that the half mile-wide craters were created by the build up of methane underneath the sea bed which leads to forming cavities that burst and explode. A lot of experts are now using this information to help them try and figure our whether blowouts of gas would be sufficient to sink ships. Good job!
But this is not the first time researchers thought that the underwater explosions could give us the right answers. Not long from ago, Igor Yelstov, from the Trofimuk Institute offered his views. He said that there is a version that the Bermuda Triangle is a consequence of gas hydrated reactions.
Has this theory provided us with the answers to the Bermuda Triangle mystery? Or is this just like other theories in the past that will go away? Only time can tell.
