Scientists have solved the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle: few people will like it

Apparently, no paranormal events have ever taken place there

The Bermuda Triangle conspiracy theory has been around for decades, stirring conspiracy theorists' imaginations about top-secret government projects, UFOs, or portals to parallel worlds. But simple statistics prove that no paranormal events have probably ever occurred in this part of the world.

This is the opinion of Australian scientist Karl Krushelnitsky and representatives of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). According to Popular mechanic, they are convinced that this is simply a difficult area to navigate, and the number of accidents there is consistent with statistical data.

"There is no evidence that mysterious disappearances occur in the Bermuda Triangle with any greater frequency than in any other large, well-researched part of the ocean," NOAA once wrote.

Krushelnytsky is trying to prove the same thing to conspiracy theorists. According to him, the intensity of traffic in this difficult-to-navigate area indicates that "the number (of ships and aircraft - Ed.) that have gone missing in the Bermuda Triangle is the same as in any other part of the world."

NOAA also explains that the accidents can also be caused by the changing Gulf Stream (a warm sea current in the Atlantic Ocean), which can dramatically change the weather.

In addition, the number of islands in the Caribbean Sea makes navigation difficult.

The fact that in the Bermuda Triangle, the magnetic compass arrow may point to true north rather than magnetic north does not help matters either, which also creates confusion in finding your way.

"The US Navy and the US Coast Guard maintain that there are no supernatural explanations for disasters at sea. Their experience suggests that the combined forces of nature and human fallibility surpass even the most incredulous science fiction," NOAA states.

Krushelnytsky is also trying to prove this theory to the media. He argues that even though some high-profile disappearances - such as Flight 19, a group of five US Navy TBM Avenger torpedo bombers that disappeared in 1945 - have contributed to the spread of mystical theories in popular culture, in each case the real cause is bad weather or possible human error. In some cases, it is also a combination of both.

The Bermuda Triangle is the area between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda.

It is believed that over the past 100 years, at least 1,000 people have died there, and about 75 planes and hundreds of ships have disappeared or sunk.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL also reported that scientists suggested that the anomalies in the Bermuda Triangle could be caused by unusual clouds over the area.
