The Bermuda Triangle : Methane Gas Bubbles - an explanation for some of the disappearances has focused on the presence of large fields of methane hydrates (a form of natural gas) on the continental shelves. Laboratory experiments carried out in Australia have proven that bubbles can, indeed, sink a scale model ship by decreasing the density of the water; any wreckage consequently rising to the surface would be rapidly dispersed by the Gulf Stream.

This is off the Bermuda Triangle, where 16+ ships washed up on a sand bar. The mystery of the Bermuda Triangle has been given a scientific explanation: methane vents which have been discovered in that region. Methane reduces the density of water, causing ships that would normally float, to instead sink. Methane, when in gas form, messes with the electrical components of aircraft, causing them

The Bermuda Triangle (one of the Mysterious Place on Earth) The question about the triangle that swallows ships, planes and all the people with them still waits for its answer. So many ships and planes have disappeared and so many disasters have happened in the area between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Miami, and many theories have appeared as well. From compass variations, gulf streams, rogue waves to human errors and conspiracy theories – anything is possible, but none of them is proved…

The Bermuda Triangle — located in the Atlantic between Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico — is a thief, stealing planes and boats right out of existence. The area got its name after Sgt. Howell Thompson (l.), along with 27 Navy airmen, vanished from the devilish spot during a routine flight in 1945. Rumors persist on a supernatural explanation, but many specialists blame hurricanes, a heavy Gulf Stream and human error.
