There is a place in Mexico City which is known as the ‘Zone of Silence’. The place is very strange and all the electronic devices of the world stop working automatically as soon as they reach this place. Even radio signals are not received.
Till date, no one has been able to find out as to why electronic devices stop working after coming here. Many other tales about the place are parts of people’s gossips.
This place came to the fore when a meteorite fell here in the year 1938. After this, a second meteorite hit this place in the year 1954. Since then, people claim the place to be somewhat peculiar.
In July 1970, an Athena test rocket launched from the Green River Launch Complex in Utah towards the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico lost control and fell in the Mapimí Desert region.
When the scientists reached the place, they were surprised to see that the compass and GPS were rotating tirelessly.
The place was thus named ‘Zone of Silence’ in the year 1966 when an oil company came here in search of oil. When workers started their work in the 50-kilometre area, they got very upset because all their electronic devices stopped working. They could not even find a single radio signal.
