The Bermuda Triangle is one of the most mysterious places on the planet, where a series of mysterious disappearances of ships and aircraft took place during the second half of the 20th century.
The region turned out to be the center of paranormal and conspiracy research, becoming famous all over the world. Why is the Bermuda Triangle considered so dangerous?
The history of the Bermuda Triangle began relatively recently — in the 1950s. American writers Edward van Winkle Jones and Vincent Gaddis were the first to notice the anomalous concentration of losses and shipwrecks in a small area of the Atlantic Ocean.
From them the term «Bermuda Triangle» was born. The region is located between Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.
Here ships really sank and people disappeared without a trace. The most famous incident was the loss of an entire link of American bombers in 1945. Following them
No wreckage was found from the wrecked equipment. Therefore, Bermuda was given the title of a mysterious place, around which they began to build mystical theories.
Today, there is a busy air traffic over the Bermuda Triangle, and ships continue to swim in the sea. With advances in technology and the advent of GPS and satellite monitoring systems, anomalous disappearances in the area have ceased.
True, shipwrecks continue to happen. In 2014 in the specified area
However, the researchers do not see anything surprising in such accidents.
Thus, it is safe to say that time and technology destroyed the legend of the Bermuda Triangle.
The mystification of this region began with the man who first spoke about it — Vincent Gaddis. The author specialized in anomalous phenomena and, in addition to the Bermuda Triangle, wrote many books about the mysterious behavior of animals, mysterious Indian rituals, magic, etc.
These works had nothing to do with science, but were incredibly popular. To pique the interest of the reader, the author deliberately ignored the facts and was able to find secrets where they were not.
