Episode 2: The Devil's Triangle

In December 1945, five U.S. Navy bombers set out on a training mission from south Florida, heading east over the Atlantic Ocean. After the planes and their crew failed to return to base, another plane was sent out to find the missing men. Neither the original planes nor the rescue plane were ever seen again. Magazines and newspapers reporting on this mysterious event began to refer to the area as the Bermuda Triangle. Over time, the name stuck, as members of the media continued to catalog other strange disappearances and mysterious happenings in that area.

In the last hundred years, countless lives have been lost but nobody is really sure why. People have blamed everything from space aliens to sea monsters for the disappearances of ships and aircraft between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Miami. But what's really going on?

Is it some form of extreme weather? Could it be a rare ocean phenomenon? Or is something else at work? In Curiosity's The Devil's Triangle, a team of investigators go deep into the triangle to explore ocean floor wrecks and stage experiments to tackle the mystery once and for all.
