Original Message Scientists believe they now have figured out exactly how those massive craters discovered in Siberia earlier this year were created. And as The Siberian Times reported Oct. 10, the holes may very well be linked to one of the world's most intriguing mystery locations -- the Bermuda Triangle.

The three craters were discovered this past summer in the Yamal, which translates to the exotic-sounding "End of the world," and Tamyr peninsulas, with two being found in the former. The findings prompted a firestorm of speculation in the scientific community and on the internet. Theories of the Siberia craters' origin ranged from underground gas explosions to meteor impacts to UFOs.

Scientists from the Trofimuk Institute of Petroleum-Gas Geology and Geophysics in Novosibirsk believe they may have the actual answer. Their findings were published in Science in Siberia journal, and what they discovered was the holes came about by a process of contributing factors. They explained that by studying the largest of the 'End of the world' craters they found that it was caused by heating from above the surface due to unusually warm climatic conditions and also from below, due to geological fault lines. All of this led to a release of gas hydrates.
