After 70 years of superstition and speculation around Bermuda Triangle, an Australian scientist claims to have finally solved the mystery.
Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is a region in western part of North Atlantic Ocean where many aircraft and ships are believed to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The triangle stretches over 700,000 km of area from Florida to Puerto Rico and the island of Bermuda in the North Atlantic Ocean.
Its vicinity is one of the most frequented shipping lanes of the world as ships cross through this region to reach ports in Europe, Americas and the Caribbean Islands.
The triangle is said to have engulfed over 1000 human beings, 50 ships and 20 airplanes in last 100 years. Moreover, the bodies and wreckage around the triangle have not been located which further intensifies the “mystery”.
Some have held that there is no mystery behind the disappearance of ships in the Bermuda Triangle whereas some have asserted that these disappearances happen because of some paranormal reasons or activity by extraterrestrial creatures. As more and more aircraft and ships sink in the triangle, the mystery around it, which emerged in the 20th century, deepens.
However, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, an Australian scientist claims to have solved the mystery. Talking to Australian news portal news.co.au, Kruszelnicki says that there is no mystery behind Bermuda Triangle to be solved as the accidents are most likely to have been caused by human error.
Dr. Kruszelnicki further says:
According to Lloyds of London and the US coast guard, the number of planes that go missing in the Bermuda Triangle is the same as anywhere in the world on a percentage basis. It is close to the equator, near a wealthy part of the world, America, therefore you have a lot of traffic.
He explained a couple of accidents in the Bermuda Triangle and established that they were all because of human error which could be because of inexperienced crew, drinking heavily before flying, frequently getting lost, not having appropriate equipment on board or other reasons.
For wreckage and bodies of ships, aircrafts and people sinking in Bermuda Triangle not being found, Kruszelnicki says that it isn’t surprising to not being able to track bodies and wreckage as the water body is massive and incredibly deep.
Even after great advances in reconnaissance and tracking technology, tracking the wreckage and bodies is rarely possible.
