Did Science Solve the Bermuda Triangle Mystery?

The Bermuda Triangle is in the headlines again thanks to a paper by Arctic University of Norway researchers showing oceanic methane bubble can cause “enormous blowouts,” air pockets large enough to swallow ships.


The giant bubbles observed and explained by the Norwegian team were in the Barents Sea, which is nowhere near Hamilton or a decent Dark and Stormy, but a similar phenomenon could - the thinking goes - result in mysterious disappearances.

The research posits as probable a theory as any for the disappearance of boats in the Sargasso Sea.
