HISTORY OF THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE
The Bermuda Triangle is also known as the Devil's Triangle. Heavily trafficked by ships and airplanes, the region covers over 500,000 square miles (over 1,294,994 square kilometers) of ocean area between Bermuda, Miami, and Puerto Rico. Many vessels and planes are said to have mysteriously vanished without leaving any wreckage or bodies.
Fueled by the warm current of the Gulf Steam, the region is beset by frequent tropical storms and hurricanes. Few people realize the deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean, the Milwaukee Depth, is in The Bermuda Triangle. Within the Puerto Rico Trench, the depth of the Milwaukee Depth is 27,493 feet (8,380 meters).
In his four voyages (1492, 1493, 1498, & 1502) to the New World, Christopher Columbus reported anomalies traveling through the area. He wrote in his journals that the ship's compass stopped working and a fireball, possibly a meteor, was seen in the sky. For fear of panicking the crew, Columbus did not mention the problems with the compass.
CHARLES BERLITZ WRITES ABOUT THE MYSTERY
Charles Berlitz popularized the name in his 1974 book The Bermuda Triangle.
In The Bermuda Triangle Mystery - Solved, journalist Larry Kusche believed he debunked Berlitz’s book as basically sloppy investigative work.
THEORIES ABOUT THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE
Over several decades, many theories behind the disappearances have been postulated. Aliens from outer space (UFOs), human error, Atlantis, sea monsters, freak localized storms, time warps, reverse gravity fields, wormholes, black holes, magnetic anomalies, waterspouts, ghosts from slaves thrown overboard, and underwater eruptions of methane gas from the ocean floor. No theory or combination of theories has ever been proven.
The Bermuda Triangle moved into the mainstream culture through thousands of books, news stories, magazine articles, television shows, science fiction movies, documentaries, and blogs.
