The Bermuda Triangle is like Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, or the person who stole the delicious Chinese takeout leftovers I was saving in the office fridge — it's one of our world's greatest unexplained mysteries. But at long last, science (like it so often does) might have come up with the answer! Read on to hear their solution. There's a good chance it's even crazier than you think! And once they're done with this Bermuda Triangle business, I'm putting those scientists on the case of my missing Chinese food — ten bucks says it was the new guy.

Everybody has heard of the Bermuda Triangle.

It's been blamed for swallowing hundreds of ships and planes over several decades. Bizarre, supernatural rumors have spread since as far back as Christopher Columbus' 1492 voyage.

The mysterious area is a 500,000km square patch in the North Atlantic Ocean that connects Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

Among the many that have entered the triangle, it is famously responsible for the disappearance of the USS Cyclops in 1918. The massive ship and its 300 crew members were never seen or heard from again, and no wreckage was ever recovered.

So what's the cause of these mass disappearances?

If it's not Cthulu, the Dread Pirate Roberts, or the Flying Dutchman, then what is it? Science, care to explain?

Some scientists believe they have at last found the oh-so monstrous and nefarious culprit behind these dastardly disappearances: clouds!

Scary, right? But hold on, because these clouds are far from ordinary.
