HUGE underwater gas explosions could explain the disappearance of ships in the notorious Bermuda Triangle.
Experts made the claim after giant craters up to half a mile wide and 150ft deep were found off the coast of Norway.
They are thought to have been caused by build-ups of methane which blow up under the sea bed.
The blasts could suck vessels into the Barents Sea, experts believe.
And they think similar holes could explain the loss of boats and even aircraft in the Atlantic between Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico.
Scientist Igor Yeltsov said of the build-ups: “It happens like a nuclear reaction, producing huge amounts of gas. It makes the ocean heat up and ships sink.”
The Triangle has been blamed for the mystery disappearance of at least 20 planes and 50 ships in the past 100 years.
The most famous involves Flight 19, when five US Navy planes vanished while out training in 1945. A search plane went to look for them, but vanished too.
