A Moment in History: The Legend of the Bermuda Triangle

by ian

In marine legends, there are certain places in the world that strike fear in the hearts of sailors and travelers. One of the most famous is a portion of water that covers a large footprint in the North Atlantic Ocean, roughly 500,000 square miles, and straddles the Sargasso Sea and parts of the Caribbean Islands. Legend says it is a place where ships have been lost at sea, radar connections have been unexplainedly disrupted or fractured altogether, and planes have mysteriously gone down without explanation. This place of legend is known as the Bermuda Triangle.
