Transcript of Bermuda Triangle
triangle?? The Bermuda Triangle, or Devil’s Triangle, is the name given to an area that has been at the centre of many unexplained disappearances. The Bermuda Triangle lies between Bermuda, Miami and Puerto Rico. In this area of water, hundreds of planes and ships have mysteriously disappeared. Bermuda Triangle Quick facts Over 100 ships and planes
have been reported missing,
but there may be many more Over 1,000 people have lost
their lives in the Bermuda
Triangle Some of the Disappearances The first and most famous disappearance happened in 1945. Flight 19 was a squadron of five naval bombers. All five planes supposedly disappeared while flying over the Bermuda Triangle. The plane that set out to rescue Flight 19 also disappeared and was never found. Another disappearance was that of Donald Crowhurst, who was attempting an around the world voyage.
A large ship carrying ore also mysteriously vanished after only three days at sea.
An official statement by the US Coastguard states that repeated search attempts were made, but no traces were ever found of the missing planes or ships.
Explanations The stretch of water where the disappearances occurred is known for tropical storms. Many of the reports at the time claim that the ships and planes were lost in calm waters. Weather reports checked since do not agree with these reports. Also, the area of water under the triangle has large areas of methane gas eruptions. These eruptions create areas of gas that are unable to support the weight of a ship.
American psychic Edgar Cayce’s readings indicate that the area beneath the Triangle was part of the mythical lost continent Atlantis and that Atlantean electromagnetic machines were hidden there. Charles Berlitz thought there was a magnetic vortex in the Triangle. Psychic Ed Snedeker believes that the atmosphere above the Triangle is filled with invisible tunnels, which suck in the aircraft, ships and people.
