BERMUDA TRIANGLE – THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH TRAP Have you ever heard of the Bermuda Triangle? Well it is a baffling mystery which none has been able to unravel so far. It is infact one of the unsolved mysteries of all times. It is not a fiction but an objective reality, which science, despite its tremendous progress over the years has not been to solve so far. Now lets get to know as to what exactly is the Bermuda triangle and why is it called the triangle of death or the devil’s triangle. The Bermuda Triangle as the name suggests is roughly a triangular region around Bermuda in the North Atlantic Ocean. It roughly measures about 1,500,000 square miles and is bounded by Florida in the west, Bermuda in the north and Puerto Rico in the south. It extends between latitude 25- 40 degrees north and longitudes 55- 85 degrees west. Why is the triangle mysterious? More than100 ships and 20 planes have disappeared in the region during the past 200 hundred years and not less than a thousand people have lost their lives in the devil’s triangle. The most notable incident was the disappearence of US nuclear submarine – USS Scorpion in May, 1968 and the five US bomber planes in December,1945 on a routine mission. A rescue mission also vanished in the triangle. As soon as a plane or ship reaches the region, its radio sinnals get cut off and its whole communication systems fail. As a result of this it fails to receive or send out any kind of radio communications and soon disappears from the radar and vanishes forever. Not even the wreckage and debris of the ship and bodies of the crew who died in the incident could be traced. There have been several attempts by scientists to explain the phenomenon and plethora of theories have been put forward.
One group of scientists believe that violent downward air currents destroyed the ships and planes and swift ocean currents carried them away. But such an explanation is too simplistic and therefore raises a very fundamental doubt here. If that be the case as is put forward by the first group of scientists then why is it that none of the debris or bodies could be recovered?
A second school of thought believes that there is a strong magnetic field in the areawhich cuts away the radio signals and pulls the ships and planes inward when they pass over the area. The magnetic field is so strong that the debris of the materials pulled by the area is sucked to the ocean bed and the strong magnetic field there makes it impossible for the debris to move to another region of the sea.
A third school of thought believes that there might be a den or hideout of some extra terestrial beings or aliens in the region which is responsible for the phenomenon.
All the above theories and attempts of explaining the phenomenon of the Bermuda Triangle are merely speculative, non substantive and far from being satisfactory. So far nobody ha sbeen able to put forward a fully convincing and scientific explanation. The mystery of the Bermuda Triangle still remains.
