Everyone’s heard of the big crazy conspiracy theories of things like the illuminati or the fact that area 51 has aliens, but one that isn’t so far fetched is the Bermuda Triangle. Now for those who don’t know what the Bermuda Triangle is, it is a fabled chunk of the Atlantic Ocean that is off the coast of Miami. This part of the ocean is about 500,000 square miles, and was made famous when the well known Spanish sailor Christopher Columbus reported a large ball of flame crashing into the sea in this area. He reported that the great ball of fire (most likely a meteor) omitted strange lights, and he also noticed strange behaviors in the compass reading. Though the its real fame started to kick off in the 20th century. One of its most popular mysteries was when in 1918, a 600 foot Navy cargo ship with over 300 men on board went missing. The ship sunk, and no distress signal was ever given, even though the ship had the ability to do so. After a large scale search, they came up empty handed, no sign of the ship or any crew or anything for that matter. Later in 1941, two sister ships that were traveling on the same route also disappeared, and were never found. People began to see a pattern, that whenever ships would travel along the Bermuda Triangle either it would vanish or be deserted. Then its second most famous story would come out in December of 1945. Five Navy bombers which had 14 men on them, flew towards the Bermuda Triangle to orchestrate some practice bombing runs. Though unfortunately their compasses started to malfunction and they soon found themselves lost. These bombers were known as flight 19, and they kept flying until they ran out of fuel and were forced to abandon their planes at sea. Though fortunately they were able to send out a distress signal, and on the same day a rescue plane with a 13 man crew were dispatched to rescue flight 19. Though their plane also too disappeared, and after a vast search there was no indication of the rescue plane or flight 19, everything had vanished leaving no trace. Only more and more stories came up after this, more ships going missing, more airlines going missing, despite giving “all clear” signals. Many conspiracy theorists believe that it has to do with aliens or sea monsters that are causing all of these strange disappearances. While the more scientific side of the community has taken more logical approaches to figuring out the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle. Though there are many theories, none can seem to solve this entire mystery. Some believe that it  is a combination of multiple natural anomalies, though one thing that most seem to agree on, is that there is no one single theory that could possible explain all these strange events. Instead they are trying to find multiple explanations that could all add up and clarify the mysterious events and accidents of the Bermuda Triangle. Even to this day the Bermuda Triangle is still as mysterious as ever, though with the recent development of better technology, scientists believe that they could crack the mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle.
