In recent days, ‘Bermuda Triangle‘, Located between Miami, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico is one of the most popular topics of conversation among the mysterious area of the earth.
This is because of a report released in August 2020 by John Tarduno, a professor of geophysics at the University of Rochester.
At the time, the educator was associated with the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA, its acronym in English). However, Tarduno and the agency have nothing to do with each other.

At first, it was reported that Tarduno had said, “I do not like the nickname of the Bermuda Triangle,” but in that region, the low intensity of the Earth’s magnetic field ends up causing more damage to the satellite’s energetic particles, which can cause damage to spacecraft as they pass through that area. “
Although his words are true, the educator does not refer to the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ that comprises the North American region, but to the South Atlantic anomaly (or SAA, abbreviated in English).
What is SAA? It is part of space in the Atlantic Ocean (between Brazil and Africa) where satellites and other electronic devices operate in a particular way due to the weakness of the Earth’s magnetic field.
Many scientists have called this region the ‘Bermuda Triangle of Space’, a nickname that everyone (including Tarduno) does not like because it can be misunderstood.
Since it is necessary to understand this part of space to carry out its different missions, both humans and unmanned, it must be said that this part of space is being explored not only by NASA, but by all space agencies.
