The Bermuda Triangle also known as the Devil's Triangle and Limbo of the Lost) is an area in the western Atlantic formed by an imaginary line connecting with Puerto Rico and the coast of Florida. This is where many ships and aircraft had vanished without explanation. Many researches are certain that there is some kind of force unknown to science in there.
In the Bermuda Triangle, there is the danger of natural dangers such as storms, hurricanes and watersprouts. There is also the Gulf Stream, a fast-moving body of water that can carry ships of course in a few hours and quickly get rid of the wreakage. But the majority of disappearances are in the Sargasso Sea, or nearby.
Modern reports of disappearances started in the 1800s when USS Pickering vanished without a trace. After that there were many disappearances, but it did not attract attention until 1945. Five U.S. Navy bombers vanished after sending a series of weird and strange messages.
What is really scary is that there are at least 12 areas similar to the Bermuda Triangle. One of them is the Devil's Sea off the coast of Japan.
But, although the Bermuda Triangle is notorious for the disappearances, out of 150,000 boats crossing it, 10,000 send distress calls, only 100 disappearances are recorded. That is a rate of 0.07%.
There have been many suggestions as to what is in the Bermuda Triangle. Some are sure that UFOs are the only acceptable solution. Another suggested that a civilisation had evolved on or below the sea bed, who periodically examined mankind. Environmental factors could be the problem.
Other theories include mini black holes and openings to other dimensions where time runs differently.
The last theory may not be as crazy as you might think. In 1970, a young pilot flew through a strange cloud and upon landing discovered that he was half-an-hour fast.
