Scientists May Have Finally Cracked the Greatest Mystery Behind the Bermuda Triangle

The mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle, a place where hundreds of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under unexplained circumstances, might have finally been solved – at least that’s what a Science Channel show claims.

A team of American scientists from the University of Colorado analyzed satellite weather images of this notorious area and noticed a series of unusual hexagonal clouds on them. The meteorologists theorized that these clouds may act as real “air bombs.”

It is believed they are the main cause of the deadly blasts of air which can easily exceed 170 miles per hour. These hurricane-force winds literally “blow up” the air and can generate waves of more than 45 feet in height.

No ship is able to survive such a storm, and no aircraft is able to withstand such a wind.

Clouds don’t typically form straight edges. However, judging by the satellite images, the Bermuda Triangle is an exception to this rule. The announcement of this theory has motivated a lot of further research. Scientists from all over the globe are trying to figure out what the reasons are for such anomalies.

Let us recall that the Bermuda Triangle is a large area of the Atlantic Ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. This region is notorious for its mysterious phenomena. Reports go back to 1945 when five American torpedo bombers and a plane that was sent out to find them vanished without a trace. Since that day, another 75 aircraft and several hundred ships have been lost. The latest tragedy happened in 2015 when the cargo ship “El Faro” disappeared in this region.
