For years we have heard tales and reports of freaky disappearances in the realm of the mysterious Bermuda Triangle and have sworn to never, ever go anywhere near it. Because a) we value our lives and don’t want to go missing, and b) well, that’s it really.
Well! Those times of freaking out haven’t passed and probably will never pass, but scientists believe they have finally SOLVED the mystery behind the all feared region which ahs taken over 75 planes and hundreds upon hundreds of ships over the years.
Scientists believe that The Bermuda Triangle, a 500,000 square kilometer area residing in the North Atlantic Ocean, has hexagonal shaped clouds which create 770km/h ‘wind air bombs’ which have the power to flip a freakin’ ship and to send planes plunging into the sea.
The satellite meteorologist who’s dedicated his time and energy to researching to strange formations, Dr. Steve Miller from the Colorado State University, and his team were able to measure the winds in the Bermuda at sea level using radar satellites.
These ‘air bombs’ are blasts of air that hit the ocean and create waves “that can be massive in size as they start to interact with each other.”
The 270 + km/h winds mean that waves of over 45ft could be created! That’s NOT a wave you want to have a run in with… and is enough to pull a boat under.
Our curiosity has finally been answered… for now.
