The Bermuda Triangle is a region of the northwestern Atlantic Ocean in which a number of aircraft and surface vessels are alleged to have disappeared in mysterious circumstances which fall beyond the boundaries of human error, pirates, equipment failure, or natural disasters.
These disappearances have been attributed to the paranormal, a door to another dimension, a suspension of the laws of physics, time travel, or activity by extraterrestrial beings.
One explanation for the strange occurrences in the Bermuda Triangle, is that it is leftover technology from the mythical lost continent of Atlantis. sometimes connected to the Atlantis story is the submerged rock formation known as the Bimini Road off the island of Bimini in the Bahamas, which is in the Triangle by some definitions. Followers of psychic Edgar Cayce take his prediction that evidence of Atlantis would be found in 1968 as referring to the discovery of the Bimini Road. Believers describe the formation as a road, wall, or other structure, though geologists consider it to be of natural origin.
Other writers attribute the events to UFOs. This idea was used by Steven Spielberg for his science fiction film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which features the lost Flight 19 as alien abductees.
It has also been considered that the Bermuda Triangle is a wormhole, (a gap in space and time).
