Is the Bermuda Triangle a myth?
Over the years, the Bermuda Triangle, often known as the Devil’s Triangle, has been the site of countless inexplicable disappearances. The world is baffled by the fact that both planes and ships have vanished. What is powerful and hazardous enough to sink ships and destroy planes? There have been various hypotheses over the years, ranging from UFOs to sea monsters to portals to another realm.
Gas is the most recent scientific idea that many scientists hope will solve the age-old question. They argue that organic compounds and other chemicals cause gas to build up beneath the ocean floor. When it is disturbed, they allege, it rises to the surface of the water. Methane rises swiftly through water and ascends once it reaches the air because it is considerably lighter than water and air. This gas has been proved in experiments to sink a ship in a couple of seconds.
A boat can stay afloat by weighing less than the water, but what if the ship suddenly becomes heavier than the water? There would be no warning, no visible signals, only the reality that the ship had hit a point where it was instantaneously considerably heavier than the water surrounding it. It would sink like a stone, according to tests. A similar impact would be seen in the upper atmosphere. A plane’s capacity to stay aloft would quickly deteriorate. It, too, would collapse into the ocean below like a rock.
How big of methane bubble would be required to create such a rapid reaction? Would a pilot in this position be able to call for assistance by radio? Could there have been enough gas in the atmosphere to bring down an entire squadron of planes, let alone one? Five planes made up the historic Flight 19 that went missing while on a training mission. To bring down five planes at the same time, how much gas would have to be released?
