Scientist Explains Away Crazy Myths Surrounding A Legend We’ve All Heard Of

We’ve all grown up hearing about the Bermuda Triangle, but is there really any truth to the stories surrounding the region between Puerto Rico, Florida, and Bermuda?

Some believe there are mysterious or even paranormal reasons for all of the planes and ships reported to have vanished there, but others, especially those who work in scientific fields, say no. Australian scientist Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki definitely counts himself among the skeptics and says there are simple explanations for all of the disappearances, like bad weather, high traffic to the region, and human error.

Rumors about the region began not long after Flight 19, a group of five U.S. Navy Grumman TBM Avenger torpedo bombers, went missing while flying over the Bermuda Triangle on a training mission in 1945.

Ships have gone missing in the area as well, or were found deserted by their crews, like the schooner Carroll A. Deering.

Though to some, these incidents don’t seem coincidental, the number of aircrafts and ships disappearing in the area “is the same as anywhere else in the world on a percentage basis, ” Kruszelnicki explained. “It is close to the equator, near a wealthy part of the world, America, hence you have a lot of traffic.”
