The mystery behind the mysterious Bermuda Triangle, where an untold number of marine vessels and airplanes have seemingly disappeared from the face of the Earth, may have finally been solved.
The U.K. Daily Mail reported that scientists discovered large craters half a mile wide and 150 feet deep in the Barents Sea, which lies off the coast of Norway.
Though these craters are thousands of miles from the Bermuda Triangle, their existence — and, more importantly, their behavior — may hold huge relevance in regard to this unsolved phenomenon.
Scientists believe that a build-up of natural gas deposits might have led to cavities of methane popping up along the ocean floor and eventually bursting like balloons, thus creating the craters.
Moreover, they speculate that it is these same sorts of explosions that have caused so much turbulence and, unfortunately, death in the Bermuda Triangle.
“They start to actively decompose with methane ice turning into gas,” Russian scientist Igor Yeltsov said last year in regard to the then-theory (now somewhat confirmed) belief that natural gas deposits were responsible for the trouble in the triangle.
He added, “It happens in an avalanche-like way, like a nuclear reaction, producing huge amounts of gas.”
This scientific theory still needs to be investigated further before definitive conclusions are drawn, but judging by the latest discovery, it seems ever-more unlikely that the litany of competing conspiracy theories surrounding the Bermuda Triangle have any truth to them.
It should come as no major surprise, since real life is rarely ever as thrilling as our imaginations.
That said, one question still remains unanswered.
If craters off the coast of Norway have been causing all the strange occurrences in the Bermuda Triangle, then why haven’t we ever heard about similar things happening in the Barents Sea?
