The world is full of mystery. Since birth men try to solve the unsolved question of the nature. With the age of expedition and science man can pull down the mighty nature with his extreme courage. He can fly through air, can dive in deep blue sea, can blast out to the outer space, and can conquer the divinity of mountain. But still the nature raises its mightiness over human. Still thousands of unsolved questions create mystery. Human knowledge is still minuscule to solve it and one of these is Bermuda triangle which is also known as devil’s triangle.
In geographically Bermuda triangle is a location linking Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico and create a huge triangle. It is around 500000 square km in size. But what is the mystery of this area? The Bermuda Triangle has had outlandish sightings since the 1600’s. Through Columbus’s expedition, he saw strange things like weird lights and his compass not pointing north in the area. Planes, surface vessels are vanished immediately in this area without any warning. Planes disappeared from the radar; planes lost their communications even search party also disappeared without leaving any sign. Pilots screamed that the compass pointer moved in a rapid speed and the craft were falling to the water surface. After some time pilot lost his all connection and disappeared for ever.
What happened in their fate? The answer is beyond knowledge. Many legends had born about this mystery. Men imagine many ferocious monsters who grab the ship and destroy it and who can destroy even airplane through its evil spirit. After that people try to believe about extraterrestrial beings from the outer spaces and so on. People try to find their answer through imagination if the logic failed. So Bermuda triangle given has birth many mysterious legends. But what is the truth?
Many scientists think that there is a strong magnetic field which draws the metal made ships or airplanes in the deep of water. And because of this magnetic force, radar signal lost. But this theory doesn’t explain every thing. Besides its impossible that the magnetic forces activate only this area and it can’t be recognize from the other areas.
The most trustable view is that there is a large concentration of methane gas trapped in the ocean floor. The gas is due to dying and decomposing sea organisms which are buried in the sediments. The sediments contain bacteria that produce methane, which accumulates as super concentrated methane ice, called gas hydrates. Within seconds of a methane gas ‘’bubble’’ rupturing, the gas will rush up to the surface of the ocean without warning. Any ship located above such a rupture would immediately sink to the ocean floor and would very rapidly be covered with sediments! Even planes flying above could catch fire following such a blow-out.
Another possible theory says that, Carbon dioxide gas is the culprit. Carbon dioxide is a gas that freezes at much warmer temperatures than water. The triangle is full of carbon dioxide and that means that when boats pass through the triangle they can freeze on the base making them sink from the weight. The gas can also explain plane disappearances too. When the engine starts it can cause the gas in the air to ignite making the air craft explode. The explosion can also explain the strange lights in the triangle.
Many specialists give different views but the truth is that. Bermuda triangle stills an unsolved mystery of the world which creates brain storming to the educated modern science based people.
