When was the last time the triangle was 'officially' blamed as the reason for an aircraft or ships demise?
That's a good question.When was the last time the triangle was 'officially' blamed as the reason for an aircraft or ships demise?
The ship was famously 'discovered' in the Gobi Desert in classic 1977 Steven Spielberg movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, having been supposedly placed there by aliens.
FULL STORY: https://www.livescience.com/shipwreck-cotopaxi-bermuda-triangle.htmlBermuda Triangle theory busted: 1925 ship Cotopaxi found near Florida
The SS Cotopaxi went missing in 1925, while traveling from Charleston, South Carolina, to Havana.
The identification of a nearly 100-year-old shipwreck has debunked a popular conspiracy theory: that the Bermuda Triangle was somehow involved with the 1925 disappearance of the SS Cotopaxi. The steam powered bulk carrier never made it to its destination in Havana.
The real cherry on top of the discovery, however, is that the SS Cotopaxi shipwreck isn't even in the Bermuda Triangle, which stretches from Bermuda to Florida to Puerto Rico.
"That's the thing about this Bermuda Triangle — if you actually look at it on a map, most of the stories associated with it aren't even in the boundaries," Michael Barnette, a marine biologist and diver who identified the wreck, told Live Science. "It's total rubbish." ...
Yep ... We have a thread dedicated to the Cyclops and her sister ships:... They considered USS Cyclops, where it was noted that not only she but her sisters USS Proteus and Nereus also sank in the Triangle area. The latter losses may be due to German torpedos, though neither was claimed as a target by any U-boat. (Their fourth sister Jupiter became the USN's first dedicated fixed-wing aircraft carrier, renamed USS Langley, eventually sunk by Japanese aircraft.) They also ran a wave tank test that indicated the design was potentially especially vulnerable to "rogue waves", which is an established phenomenon. ...
||The Bermuda Triangle is a hoax invented by George Sand in Fate magazine in 1952. This fact, however, is the forbidden history that Forbidden History forbids its viewers from learning. I will, however, say that I did not expect this episode to descend into the hellish depths of Ancient Aliens or for one of the stars of that show to make a guest appearance like visiting head of state. This show was always the fringe history and conspiracy theory show, not the alien one. It rarely invoked aliens and instead preferred giants, Templars, and Illuminati. I had expected a dry discussion of famous disappearances, maybe a visit to a stretch of ocean—the kind of stuff all the other Bermuda Triangle shows do all the time. But now, we went full Ancient Aliens. Suddenly, it’s like all of cable fake history is collapsing in on itself toward either a black hole or a singularity where everything becomes Ancient Aliens. ...|
