A pilot reports a strange haze enveloping his plane, then disappears; eleven hours after fuel starvation, as if calling out from a void, he is heard 600 miles away. He requests permission to land, then vanishes forever. A freighter steaming over placid seas disappears without a trace. A pleasure yacht ghosts past without a soul on board. A pilot calls for help because a "weird object" is harassing his plane. A jet collides with an "unknown" and is never found. . . .
Are these events real, or just a sideshow for curiosity seekers and the gullible? These are the facts: none of the cases cited above, nor any of the hundreds of others similar to them, has ever been satisfactorily explained. Though little has been written about the Bermuda Triangle in the past quarter century, the haunting questions raised by the groundbreaking books of the 1970s have never been answered. And despite the prevailing official silence, the Bermuda Triangle continues to claim victims.
Indeed, over the past twenty-five years, despite the universal deployment of electronic navigation systems such as GPS and reliable, state-of-the-art communications, and despite the fact that in most cases searches have been immediately launched, more than seventy-five airplanes and more than a thousand yachts and commercial vessels, along with their passengers and crews, have disappeared for no apparent reason and with no logical explanation. Though many of these were equipped with emergency locator radiobeacons, not one such beacon was activated--just one more enduring Triangle mystery.
Into the Bermuda Triangle is the first comprehensive examination of this extraordinary subject in more than a generation. Drawing on official reports from the NTSB and other investigative agencies as well as interviews with scientists, theorists, and survivors, leading authority Gian Quasar not only sets the record straight on previously examined cases including the infamous Flight 19 mystery of 1945, he also offers a bulging case file of new disappearances, the collective results of his twelve-year investigation. In meticulous detail this unflinching account:
- Documents confirmed disappearances of airplanes and ships
- Examines new testimony and reexamines old interviews from eyewitnesses and survivors
- Explores possible explanations ranging from zero-point energy to magnetic vortices
- Challenges our assumptions with the sheer weight of accumulated evidence
Whether you’re fascinated by unexplained events or eager to learn the truth behind the stories you’ve heard, reading Into the Bermuda Triangle is like seeing the planets start to wobble in their orbits. Quasar wants you to understand that this earth--far from a conquered host--still conceals mysteries that will challenge our established world view no less than the theory of relativity challenged Newtonian mechanics. In this age of technological and scientific accomplishment, there are still things that transcend understanding. The Bermuda Triangle is one.
Still unsolved, still baffling, still claiming new victims every year. Here are the untold stories . . .
Twenty-five years after the last comprehensive investigation of the Bermuda Triangle, and despite modern navigation, communication, and search-and-rescue systems, ships and planes continue to disappear without trace into that mysterious region of the North Atlantic. In this book Gian Quasar synthesizes his twelve years of research--work that has underpinned several television documentary films--into a pursuit of explanations that will challenge your most fundamental assumptions. Into the Bermuda Triangle:
- Reexamines and amends the reports and conclusions of its bestselling predecessor books of a generation ago;
- Investigates the unexplained disappearances of the past 25 years--more than 75 airplanes and a thousand yachts and commercial ships with their passengers and crews;
- Searches every corner of science, no matter how arcane or out-of-the-mainstream, for an explanation that fits the known facts and solves the unknown mysteries.
Could magnetic vortices be at work? Could a space-time warp impinge on the Bermuda Triangle? Or are these bizarre happenings a harbinger of greater upheavals still to come, disruptions that we may be bringing on ourselves? One thing is sure: Boats, planes, and people continue to disappear at an alarming rate for no apparent--or logical--reason. The sheer weight of evidence in this eye-opening book will keep you awake at night.
