The craters – two in Yamal and one on the Taymyr peninsula – were revealed during the summer, leading to urgent analysis by scientists as well as a wave of speculation suggesting the cause was aliens from outer space, meteorites, or stray missiles.

Now respected Science in Siberia journal has come up with a coherent explanation for the northern craters and – sensationally – links it to the notorious Bermuda Triangle phenomenon, where ships and aircraft have disappeared under strange circumstances between Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico.
