Scientists from Arctic University in Norway made a discovery that could provide answers as to why so many ships have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle. Is it possible that the Bermuda ship disappearance mystery is solved?
Scientists reveal they have located several underwater craters under the Arctic Sea in the Bermuda Triangle. Some reach as much as 2,524 feet wide and 147 feet deep. Researchers believe that the craters were created from a buildup of methane that leaked from natural gas, forming cavities that eventually burst. This could potentially be dangerous for ships traveling through the Bermuda Triangle.
A Russian scientist from the Trofimuk Institute mentions that the methane ice begins to transform into gas, causing the craters to decompose. This process occurs when avalanches strike, as well as during a nuclear reaction.
“That makes the ocean heat up and ships sink in its waters mixed with a huge proportion of gas.”
This theory could potentially solve the mystery of plane crashes above the Bermuda Triangle. If an explosion occurs, the gas blowout could cause a plane to catch fire and be completely destroyed.
The coast of Norway is known for being rich in natural gas, therefore it is not a surprise that the underwater craters were located deep in the Barents Sea of the Arctic Ocean.
What mysteries have been recorded involving the Bermuda Triangle? History describes some of the events that have occurred in the Bermuda Triangle, thus giving it the nickname, “Devil’s Triangle.”
One unexplained mystery occurred when a Navy pilot suddenly became disoriented while flying through the Bermuda Triangle. The Navy plane was never found. Many planes and ships have suddenly disappeared without cause.
It has been said that when Christopher Columbus traveled through the Bermuda Triangle that a meteor crashed into the sea. A few weeks later, a bright light appeared in a distance. He also wrote that the compass readings were very erratic.
In March 1918, a Navy cargo ship suddenly sank somewhere between the Chesapeake Bay and Barbados. The ship never sent out a distress call and no wreckage was found. It simply vanished without a trace.
In 1945, five Navy bombers took off from Fort Lauderdale. All five planes became severely lost, possibly from erratic compass readings, and ended up being forced into the sea after running low on fuel. The rescue plane was also reported missing. No evidence was ever found.
Many theories have been made to support the unexplained mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle. Some believe paranormal or alien activity is to blame. Other more scientific theories have been made including sea monsters, magnetic anomalies, waterspouts, and as mentioned above, methane gas eruption.
The U.S. Coast Guard does not deem the Bermuda Triangle as hazardous, regardless of all the unexplained mysteries surrounding it.
“In a review of many aircraft and vessel losses in the area over the years, there has been nothing discovered that would indicate that casualties were the result of anything other than physical causes. No extraordinary factors have ever been identified.”
Kusche’s theory was made by Larry Kushe and was revealed in a book, The Bermuda Triangle Mystery-Solved. Kusche’s theory claims that the Bermuda Triangle is no more dangerous than any other sea. The Bermuda Triangle is heavily used and he doesn’t think that the Bermuda Triangle mystery is such a mystery after all. Kushe revealed some “mystery disappearances” occurred while the weather was calm, while in truth their was a raging storm.

Whether or not the Bermuda Triangle is truly a mystery, it certainly holds many strange accounts. Although paranormal activity could be to blame for mystery ship and plane disappearances, the most recent scientific claim certainly seems reasonable. Perhaps methane gas explosions are to blame for the Bermuda Triangle mystery disappearances.
