Scientists believe they've 'solved' the Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle has long been a mystery that has permeated the travel world, but scientists now believe they've 'solved' it.

British scientists have tested a theory that 30m waves are the reason so many ships have disappeared in the infamous region over the decades.

The Bermuda Triangle is a 700,000km stretch of water in North Atlantic Ocean between Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.

Also known as the Devil’s Triangle, it has claimed more than 1000 lives over the past 100 years.

Experts at the University of Southampton believe these disappearances and deaths were caused by “rogue waves” – some measuring 30m high, The Sun reports.

To test their theory, scientists used indoor simulators to re-create the monster water surges and placed a scale model of the USS Cyclops, which went missing in 1918, claiming 300 lives. The model ship was quickly overcome by the simulated waves.

Ocean and earth scientist Dr Simon Boxall said waves such as those simulated could be caused by three massive storms coming together from different directions. Such surges could snap a ship like the Cyclops in two.

“There are storms to the south and north, which come together,” said Dr Boxall.

“And if there are additional ones from Florida, it can be a potentially deadly formation of rogue waves.

“They are steep, they are high — we’ve measured waves in excess of 30m. The bigger the boat gets, the more damage is done.

“If you can imagine a rogue wave with peaks at either end, there’s nothing below the boat, so it snaps in two. If it happens, it can sink in two to three minutes.”

That may explain why ships go missing but what about all the aircraft that go missing ??

My thought too.

Looks like the movie "The perfect storm" is quite a reality.

Bad weather can also affect Aircraft as well --

but I would not rule out anything there are a lot of things that are yet unanswered

It is just that our visitors from Mars just want to check on the advance of technology we Earthlings have carried out.

:-D

I still prefer the "UFO snatched them" explanation :-)

Wtf, I thought I was on planet earth - solid ground, feet firmly planted on terra australis and look what you've done - thrown me into the void! May the force be with you .... or without. 

it is a fasinating subject,   if it is these waves,   where is the debris?     with all the sea and air craft that have dissappered there must be some parts floating around somewhere,   im a bit like AUTUMN  OZ,    i prefer the   ufo explanation,  

I too prefer the UFO theory

 

It's all in the plan, ask Dr Mark666 of the illuminati

ok Micha answer this one. If planes and boats disappear in the Bermuda triangle, why don't the people who go to investigate not disappear too???

DUH !!! They use hovercrafts, geez!

So, I guess it was a rogue cloud that caused the aeroplanes to disappear.

LOL

Scientist ‘solves’ mystery of the Bermuda Triangle – by claiming there was no mystery in the first place.

Australian scientist Karl Kruszelnicki, “Dr Karl", says everything can be explained by human error, bad weather, and heavy air and sea traffic – not alien abduction or energy beams from the lost city of Atlantis.

“According to Lloyd’s of London and the US Coastguard,” he said, “The number that go missing in the Bermuda Triangle is the same as anywhere in the world on a percentage basis.”

Like your map of the Bermuda Triangle RnR and I'm thinking it's so lucky that the British Virgin Islands are just outside the triangle, otherwise a few of them could have been abducted and impregnated with dirty, disgusting and horrific Alien genes and DNA. How would that have changed the evolution of humankind!! Well when Hollywood gets  the idea they will make a few million bucks by letting us know!!

 

Theories and counter theories abound about the supposed Bermuda triangle. I imagine we shall never be able to get to the bottom of this. Anyhow, this bit of information came my way a few years ago which could provide some food for thought. When Christopher Columbus sailed through that area on his first voyage to the New World,he wrote in his log that a a great flame of fire crashed into the sea one night and a strange light appeared some time later.

Scientists today believe he could have witnessed a meteor crashing into the sea. He also spoke of compass readings going haywire and it’s interesting to note that around that time a small section of the “Bermuda triangle” was one of the few places on Earth where true north and magnetic north lined up.

Maybe there must be some magnetic forces that sometimes cause havoc when things line up?

Can remember last year there was a lot of speculation about a long overdue reversing of the earth's magnetic polarity and the predicted effects. So far this year, haven't heard it mentioned again.

A rather spectacular meteorite last night over parts of NSW and Victoria apparently.

there was also the case of the MARY CELESTE,     was found  floating in the ocean,   no a body to be found,   not on the boat, or in surrounding waters,    plates were on the tables,   the log book was up to date,    but no trace has ever been found of passengers or crew,     ALIENS,    

Yes Cats there are a lot of things left unexplained

that is one that really fascinates me Plan b,     everything on the boat was as if nothing was wrong,   food had been cooked,  and tables laid,     nothing has ever come to light about it,   and that happened in 1939,
