Scientist Claims to Solve Bermuda Triangle Enigma


An Australian scientist, Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki, claims to have solved the mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle, an area in the North Atlantic Ocean between Florida, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico known for its stories of disappearing airplanes and ships.

For decades, the Bermuda Triangle, also known as the "Devil's Triangle," has had a notorious reputation as a hot spot for unexplained disappearances. 

This has led to numerous speculations, theories, and even supernatural explanations, ranging from water spouts and methane bubbles to magnetic field disruptions, wormholes, and long-lost technology from Atlantis or extraterrestrial beings.

However, Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki argues that the truth behind the Bermuda Triangle mystery is much simpler. 

He believes it can be attributed to a combination of sheer probability (the likelihood of random accidents), human error, and adverse weather conditions, rather than any occurrence of extraordinary phenomena.

Based on his studies, Dr. Kruszelnicki states, "The number of ships and planes that go missing in the Bermuda Triangle is the same as anywhere else in the world on a percentage basis. It's located near the equator, close to a heavily trafficked region, America, which explains the higher volume of traffic."

In fact, Dr. Kruszelnicki claims that the area where a group of five US Navy bombers, known as Flight 19, disappeared without a trace in 1945 has a similar rate of missing boats and planes compared to any other location in the world. 

Researchers at the University of Sydney, including Buffen, believe that human error and adverse weather are the most likely causes, rather than alien abductions and far-fetched theories proposed by some theorists.

Regarding Flight 19, Dr. Kruszelnicki points out that the crew's leader, Lieutenant Charles Taylor, had a history of getting lost and abandoning his aircraft twice before, indicating a pattern of human error in this well-known tragedy. 

He further states that radio transmissions prior to the disappearance of Flight 19 indicated that the crew was uncertain about their location.

Dr. Kruszelnicki explains, "If you read the radio transcripts, some of the novice pilots suggest, 'Why don't we fly west?' and the pilot responds, 'Why don't we fly east?'"

Indeed, the transcripts reveal that Lieutenant Taylor believed his compass was malfunctioning and that he was flying over the Florida Keys. However, subsequent analysis demonstrated that he was actually farther southeast in the Bahamas.

Dr. Kruszelnicki's claims were first reported in The Independent, a British newspaper, in 2017. They have resurfaced this month in Popular Mechanics magazine, after he reiterated that human error and adverse weather are likely the primary factors behind all disappearance cases, as reported by Fox News.
