Bermuda Triangle, The Unsolved Mystery
The Bermuda triangle (devil’s triangle) is a notorious area that lies in the north Atlantic ocean between Florida, Porto Rico and the island of Bermuda. If you draw a line connecting these points, you get a huge triangle. In fact, it is estimated to be a whopping 500,000 square miles in size. There are few people who never heard of this mysterious place and all the horrible secrets hidden in its depths. It terrifies people all over the world with its spooky statics. 300 ships vanished without a trace, 75 aircrafts simply disappeared out of thin air and over 1000 victims who never made it home to their families. With each passing year, we see different theories attempting to explain the mystery of the Bermuda triangle. But we still not sure what exactly this place is. Some say it’s cursed. Other say it’s something paranormal. Some people also believe that it got something with aliens. Whatever it is, not even scientists fully understand the cause of all the tragedies that unfold in the Bermuda triangle.
The Bermuda triangle started gaining fame in the times of Christopher Columbus. During his voyage, the explorer noticed pillars of fire falling from the sky and crashing into the ocean near this area. At that time there wasn’t any method of communication. So people were unaware of the triangle until the 20th century. But even before that, this arcane place was kept claiming victims in its trap on a regular basis.
One of the most popular disappearances was that of an American merchant ship called Mary Celeste. The vehicle set sail on November 7th, 1872. The ship’s captain was Benjamin Briggs. Along with his wife, their two-year-old daughter, he has a crew of seven onboard. They were moving from New York to Genoa Italy. They had an expensive and costly cargo of 1700 barrels of raw alcohol. Some days after their journey began, and just days after the ship’s last recorded entry of November 25th, a British vessel called “the DE Grazia” happened to come upon the Mary Celeste, floating under a partial sail. Everything looked normal there except for one thing. There wasn’t a soul onboard the ship. The lifeboat was missing. The only thing that seemed ordinary was a single sword lying on the deck. Crew’s six month supply of food, as well as the transported alcohol, was untouched. Any other theories such as an undersea earthquake, a giant squid attack or a natural disaster can be ruled out too. But the vessel wasn’t damaged. It was a clear day. The ship was in a perfect condition. So why did people leave it and never come back? Whatever the reason is, neither the crew nor the lifeboat was ever found.
Some researchers believe that these lives were claimed by this arcane place. But its mystery couldn’t be cleared till now.
