The on March 14, 1918, the USS Cyclops
The Bermuda Triangle is also known as the” Deadly Triangle” or “Devil’s
Triangle”, it has been blamed for
hundreds of shipwrecks, plane crashes, mysterious disappearances, craft
instrument malfunctions (www.History.com) and other unexplained phenomena.
The Bermuda Triangle goes between Miami,
Florida, Bermuda and San Juan, Puerto Rico. For many years there has been many
unexplained theories behind disappearing planes and ships.
19 disappeared in 1945. Flight 19 had 5 planes that went missing, they
were last heard from at 4pm. There was
no trace of the plane. (Boys’ Life June
2003). A search was conducted for 5 days and that plane went missing also.
1815 was the first disappearance of a
ship the USS Epervier that a crew of 134 disappeared. The second disappearance was the USS Cyclops
with a crew of 309 that set sail on March 14, 1918, the USS Cyclops was never
seen again. Hubert Helligar in October of
2000 was another disappearance with no explanation. It is believed that weather
caused Helligar to disappear.
is also scientific explanations of the disappearances in the Bermuda
Triangle. The theory is Methane Hydrates
causes the disappearances by it building pressure in the water and it blows up
causing a pressure mass.(http://mysite.du.edu/~jcalvert/econ/hydrates.htm) This may explain why there is never any traces of
any vessels, planes, or humans.
theory behind the Bermuda Triangle disappearances is Weather. One is
called “Hurricane Alley” which is
located in the Atlantic Ocean. It is believed to be like a hurricane. These
areas have warm sea surfaces, minimal wind, and atmospheric disturbances that
may attribute to some of the disappearances.
In conclusion, the Bermuda Triangle is neither scientifically
explained or a phenomenon, it is a mystery that will probably never be solved. The Bermuda Triangle has had more than 70
ships and planes and hundreds of people missing. Only time and
more research will tell
if it can be scientifically explained or a phenomenon.
