Mysteries of Bermuda Triangle are unlocked
A new exhibit about the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle was unveiled at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute yesterday.
Bermuda Triangle: Unlock the Secrets opened at the BUEI's Ocean Discovery Centre, with John Rankin, the Governor, Jamahl Simmons, Minister of Economic Development and Tourism, Walter Roban, the Deputy Premier and Nancy Gosling, of main sponsor Goslings, on hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The exhibit aims to shed light on the infamous Bermuda Triangle and includes a 3D hologram of a hurricane from its formation to dissipation, a giant glass cylinder that demonstrates how a large release of methane gas can sink a ship and a “Survive the Bermuda Triangle” game.
It also showcases some of the most intriguing Bermuda Triangle stories, information on the most common reason for maritime and aircraft accidents and has a pop culture section featuring John Lennon, Barry Manilow, Fleetwood Mac and Lynda Carter, the original Wonder Woman.
The exhibit was designed by project manager Lana Leksina and Canadian exhibit design firm 3DS/Three Dimensional Services, who also built the exhibit and oversaw its installation with local company Allset.
