1. The Bermuda Triangle is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where ships and planes have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
The term "Bermuda Triangle" was coined in 1964 by Vincent Gaddis, a writer for Argosy magazine, in an article titled "The Deadly Bermuda Triangle."
3. The Bermuda Triangle is roughly bounded by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico.
Some theories about the Bermuda Triangle's mysterious disappearances include human error, piracy, and natural disasters such as hurricanes.
The Bermuda Triangle has been the subject of numerous books, articles, and television shows, but there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that the area is more dangerous than any other part of the ocean.
Many of the reported incidents in the Bermuda Triangle may have been exaggerated or misreported, and some have been proven to be hoaxes.
The Bermuda Triangle is not the only place in the world where ships and planes have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Other areas, such as the Devil's Sea off the coast of Japan and the Dragon's Triangle, have also been associated with unexplained disappearances.
Some scientists have suggested that methane hydrates, which are frozen methane gas deposits found on the ocean floor, could be responsible for some of the disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle. Methane hydrates can cause ships to sink by destabilizing the ocean floor, but this theory has not been proven.
The Bermuda Triangle is not formally recognized by the US government or any other organization as a danger zone.
Despite the many theories and stories surrounding the Bermuda Triangle, the vast majority of vessels and planes pass through the region safely.
