The Bermuda Triangle is a triangular region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean that connects Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. But it isn’t just a body of water; it’s a place of legendary mystery. Why? More than 50 ships and 20 airplanes are said to have strangely disappeared there, including all of their passengers and cargo.
Get your scuba gear ready because we’re about to go underwater to solve the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, plus another famous disappearing act while we’re at it. (Just kidding. No scuba gear required.)
