Forbidden Caves

Aired on Oct 31, 2014

Could the darkest recesses of our planet contain important information left by our ancient ancestors? And within Earth’s mysterious caves, might we find evidence of otherworldly contact? Throughout human history, some caves have been considered sacred places for spiritual encounter and enlightenment, while others have been feared as true portals to purgatory. What happens in these subterranean spaces that has the power to influence religions around the globe? Could some of Earth’s deepest caverns be secret conduits to supernatural realms? In Charma, India, archeologists recently discovered 10,000 year-old prehistoric artwork of what appears to be extraterrestrial beings. Could these paintings be a visual record of alien encounters in the distant past?

Episode 2 Mysteries of the Sphinx
S 9 E 2

Mysteries of the Sphinx

Aired on Nov 07, 2014

The Great Sphinx in Giza is the largest and most studied monolithic sculpture on Earth, yet it remains one of humanities greatest mysteries. This ancient monolith defies explanation, pre-dates our earliest known civilizations and may hide the secrets of our very origins. While mainstream archeology theorizes that the Sphinx was built around 2500 BC, geological evidence suggests it is much older. If this is true, then who–or what–created the Sphinx? Researchers are now proposing the existence of a second, twin Sphinx on the Giza Plateau. If so, has it been deliberately hidden from mankind? The face of the Sphinx is believed to represent Egyptian pharaoh Khafra, yet the size and proportion of the massive carving suggests the head has been altered. Could the statue have originally represented an otherworldly being that came to Earth some 10,000 years ago, as Ancient Astronaut theorists propose?

Episode 3 Aliens Among Us
S 9 E 3

Aliens Among Us

Aired on Nov 14, 2014

There are those who believe that the evolution of technology is not entirely of our own making. Ancient Astronaut theorists contend that it is by extraterrestrial design that we have become so technologically interconnected–and that we are being watched by beings from beyond our world. Do stories from the ancient past hold evidence of alien overseers? The Book of Enoch describes divine entities called the Watchers descending to Earth to monitor humankind and aid in our advancement. Inca legend states that the god Viracocha created humans and taught them astronomy, agriculture and other advanced arts. The Maya civilization believed their supreme god Kukulkan taught humans writing, mathematics and science. In ancient Chinese legend, the divine ruler Huang Di introduced numerous advancements such as the wheel, weaving and writing. Could it be that our increased reliance on computers, cell phones, tablets, and the Internet is the product of extraterrestrial design?

Episode 4 The Genius Factor
S 9 E 4

The Genius Factor

Aired on Nov 21, 2014

Throughout history, many of the world’s greatest thinkers have helped push civilization forward with their profound insights and extraordinary abilities. But the majority of these master minds say their brilliance comes from a place they don’t understand–and arrives at times they’re not expecting it. In antiquity, people in nearly every culture around the world believed they did not possess genius, but that genius possessed them, like a spirit. Could it be that the forces of inspiration that the ancients attributed to the gods really did emanate from an otherworldly source, as Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest? Whether it’s Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity, Edison’s light bulb, or Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleyev’s Periodic Table of Elements, geniuses routinely say their best ideas come from dreams, visions, or hallucinated voices. Is it possible that genius is more than just the product of good genetics?

Episode 5 Secrets of the Mummies
S 9 E 5

Secrets of the Mummies

Aired on Nov 28, 2014

For thousands of years, in cultures throughout the world, people have practiced elaborate techniques to preserve the human body after death. The ancient Egyptians believed mummification ensured entrance into the next life. Buddhist monks in Japan practiced a shocking self-mummification process that began before death in the hopes of becoming a “living Buddha.” And the Incas consulted the mummified remains of their kings to discuss affairs of state and the future. Ancient Astronaut theorists believe the global practice of mummification is not a coincidence, but proof that highly advanced extraterrestrials visited Earth in the distant past. Could our ancestors have witnessed a form of biological hibernation and then mimicked it with mummification? Could mummification have been an attempt to recreate suspended animation so often connected to extraterrestrial space travel? Or could the intention have been to preserve the body for future DNA removal?

Episode 6 Alien Resurrections
S 9 E 6

Alien Resurrections

Aired on Dec 05, 2014

Throughout history, incredible stories have been told of the dead rising from their graves, mummies journeying into the afterlife, and people on the brink of death mingling with deceased relatives in a celestial netherworld. Are they simply legends–or could some of these stories actually be true? From Jesus and Elijah to mummies and zombies, our culture is filled with accounts of beings who are able to lift the veil between life and death. And even today, scientists are trying to mimic this by suspending death in the operating room for hours at a time. Haitian priests continue the ancient practice of raising “zombies” from the grave. And microscopic organisms have been found that can resuscitate themselves after lying dormant for weeks. Are we on the verge of decoding the mysteries of life, death, and resurrection?

Episode 7 Alien Messages
S 9 E 7

Alien Messages

Aired on Dec 26, 2014

There are those who believe that embedded in our most sacred religious texts, as well as in the design and location of ancient monuments, are secret messages–messages that may reveal the purpose behind our very existence. Could it be true? Strange and cryptic communications with unknown meaning have been discovered all across the globe throughout every known civilization. Might the key to unlocking the mysteries of the universe be found hidden in numerological, geometrical, and geological puzzles left for us to solve by extraterrestrial beings that came to Earth thousands of years ago? Are humans being tested? Have we learned enough to crack the codes necessary to decipher these messages? And if so, might our understanding of them allow us to finally be reunited with our celestial ancestors?

Episode 8 The Great Flood
S 9 E 8

The Great Flood

Aired on Dec 23, 2014

It is a story told in more than twelve hundred cultures around the world–the gods sent a great flood to wipe out humanity for its disobedient and wicked ways. Do these numerous creation myths point to an actual deluge, one that engulfed the world and spared only a chosen few? New evidence suggests that many fabled aspects of these flood myths may, in fact, be true. From traces of a major meteor impact in the Indian Ocean, to a worldwide ash layer, and even remnants of Noah’s gravesite, scientists are starting to put the pieces of a very deadly puzzle together–a puzzle that some believe was created by extraterrestrial beings. Did humanity narrowly escape extinction? And are the ancient stories correct–that alien beings are the reason we survived? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe they are–and that celestial beings are poised to save us again when another catastrophe sweeps across the Earth.

Episode 9 Aliens and the Civil War
S 9 E 9

Aliens and the Civil War

Aired on Apr 10, 2015

The Civil War nearly destroyed the great experiment known as the United States of America, but is it possible that the preservation of the republic was influenced by extraterrestrial beings? Abraham Lincoln described strange visions and premonitions that occur before pivotal moments in his presidency. Union officer Ambrose Bierce wrote about mysterious disappearances and inter-dimensional travel. And a ghostly image of George Washington was witnessed by hundreds of soldiers at Gettysburg–prompting an official government investigation. Is it possible that extraterrestrials were present during the Civil War? If so, were they simply passive observers, waiting to see if our fragile democracy could survive this test? Or did they take an active roll in order to preserve the Union?

Episode 10 Hidden Pyramids
S 9 E 10

Hidden Pyramids

Aired on Apr 17, 2015

With infrared satellite technology detecting pyramids hidden underneath the sand in Egypt and airborne laser sensors discovering long lost pyramids beneath the jungles of Central America, many believe we have entered a new pyramid era–an age of discovery that will be marked by unimaginable new findings. 21st century excavations are also revealing fascinating new facts about pyramids that could potentially rewrite history. Archaeologists now believe the ancient pyramids in Peru are older than the Egyptian pyramids, and a recently surveyed megalithic site in Indonesia is now suspected to be a step pyramid built by a long lost civilization 20,000 years ago. But what can explain ancient man’s apparent obsession with building pyramids? Ancient Astronaut theorists believe the world pyramid phenomena is not a coincidence, but evidence that Earth’s earliest inhabitants may have had help from extraterrestrials.

Episode 11 The Vanishings
S 9 E 11

The Vanishings

Aired on Apr 24, 2015

Stories of civilizations large and small disappearing without a trace can be found throughout history and across the globe. From a previously unknown civilization in China, a vanished race of giants, to the unexplained disappearances of the Classic Maya and the Anasazi–elements of these disappearances cannot be completely explained by conventional scholars. Although these cultures have vanished from the face of the Earth, they have left behind intriguing clues–clues, some say point to an otherworldly explanation. And if entire groups have been taken off planet, might there be a connection with sites connected to mysterious vanishings of people, planes, and boats in various locations throughout the world? Could examining these disappearances lead us to not only uncover evidence of extraterrestrial intervention in our remote past, but also reveal the consequences for the future of the human race?

Episode 12 The Alien Agenda
S 9 E 12

The Alien Agenda

Aired on May 01, 2015

Many of humanity’s most significant turning points have bore witness to unexplainable events. Is this merely coincidence, or could it be evidence that the course of human history is being manipulated by an alien agenda? Ancient Astronaut theorists have long proposed that extraterrestrials played a pivotal role in our past, and some believe they continue to keep a careful watch over the progress of mankind. Even high-level government officials have made claims that extraterrestrials are visiting our planet with an interest in our technological advancements, including former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer, who stated that that the cosmos are teaming with life. Could the UFO phenomenon be real? Have extraterrestrials been monitoring human progress for thousands of years–at times helping us to advance, and at other times holding us back?

Episode 13 Beyond Nazca
S 9 E 13

Beyond Nazca

Aired on May 15, 2015

Series host and Ancient Astronaut theorist, Giorgio Tsoukalos, explores the mystery of the Nazca Lines found in the desert region of Southern Peru. Hundreds of gigantic lines, some in the shape of animals, geometric patterns and even an alien-like being, extend for miles over a vast section of the arid plain. Scholars are divided as to who built them, and why. Some Ancient Astronaut theorists believe that the massive markings have an extraterrestrial connection, and perhaps the ancient people of the region created these gigantic figures in tribute to the gods who visited them. While the area was abandoned nearly 2000 years ago, remains of ancient Nazca people have been found with strange, elongated skulls. Could this be evidence that there really was contact with “sky people” as ancient legends describe?

Episode 14 The Monoliths
S 9 E 14

The Monoliths

Aired on May 22, 2015

Ancient Astronaut theorist, Giorgio Tsoukalos, shares his insight on massive stone structures and strange, giant figures known as Monoliths. What compelled ancient man to move colossal stones, in some cases weighing thousands of pounds, and to build remarkably similar stone monuments all around the world? From the jungles of Costa Rica to England’s rural countryside, ancient people achieved extraordinary feats of construction without advanced tools or technology. Is it possible that extraterrestrials instructed the ancients to build these complex structures? Or were our ancestors driven to create these monoliths in order to reconnect with celestial travelers who once walked the Earth? Could ancient monoliths hold advanced, extraterrestrial powers we have yet to realize? And if so, just what will happen when we unlock the mystery of the monoliths?

Episode 15 The Tesla Experiment
S 9 E 15

The Tesla Experiment

Aired on May 29, 2015

Giorgio Tsoukalos presents the fascinating story of Nikola Tesla, one of the most prolific inventors of the 20th century–and the man that actually electrified the world. Tesla is credited with shepherding mankind to a new industrial era and laying the groundwork for today’s technological age. The genius inventor claimed he could visualize his inventions in full-detail and manipulate them in his mind. And he also claimed to have direct communication with intelligent beings on other planets. Is it possible that this alleged mad scientist, so far ahead of his time, was actually a human “receiver”? A being tapped to advance mankind–and pave the way for a future reunion with our alien ancestors?

Episode 16 Alien Power Plants
S 9 E 16

Alien Power Plants

Aired on Jun 05, 2015

Did our ancestors have an understanding of how to generate power thousands of years before modern man? Ancient Astronaut theorist, Giorgio Tsoukalos, theorizes that some of the most famous ruins on Earth may be long-forgotten power sources that hold a celestial connection. From the discovery of an ancient battery in Iraq and the depiction of a primitive light bulb in Egypt, to a wireless power grid that may have reached around the world, there is evidence suggesting ancient man had access to electricity, which, until recently, was believed to be a modern day phenomenon. But if our ancestors did possess power, where did they gain this knowledge? Is it possible that they received this wisdom from an extraterrestrial source as ancient astronaut theorists contend? And, if so, why did the power stop flowing?

Episode 17 The Mystery of Puma Punku
S 9 E 17

The Mystery of Puma Punku

Aired on Jun 12, 2015

Ancient Astronaut theorist, Giorgio Tsoukalos explores one of the most compelling and mysterious locations on Earth, Puma Punku. Forty miles west of La Paz, Bolivia–high in the Andes Mountains–lie the mysterious ancient ruins of Puma Punku. Spread across a desert plateau at an altitude over 12,000 feet, the megalithic stones found scattered here are among the largest on the planet. Mainstream scientists believe native people used primitive stone tools to construct the site approximately 2000 years ago. But in 1945, archaeologist Arthur Posnansky proposed that Puma Punku was much, much older–perhaps going back to 15,000 BC. And Ancient Astronaut theorists point to the intricate stonework and interlocking qualities of the megalithic stone blocks as evidence of the use of advanced technology–technology of an otherworldly origin. Could Puma Punku have been built by extraterrestrials?

Episode 18 Alien Messages
S 9 E 18

Alien Messages

Aired on Jun 19, 2015

Giorgio Tsoukalos decodes some of the most compelling evidence for Ancient Astronaut theory found in mysterious carvings, symbols, and structures that are strikingly similar on opposite ends of the Earth. Egyptian pyramids aligned with the stars of Orion’s belt match up perfectly with pyramidal structures in Central Mexico. A sacred symbol common to India appears carved into the desert floor of Peru. And a modern day crop circle in England is an identical match for a design carved on a stone found just outside Roswell, New Mexico. Is this mere coincidence? Or could the answers to mankind’s greatest questions about our origins and our future actually be hidden in plain sight, disguised in the form of alien messages?

Episode 19 Aliens and the Lost Ark
S 9 E 19

Aliens and the Lost Ark

Aired on Jun 26, 2015

Ancient Astronaut theorist, Giorgio Tsoukalos, explores the construction, history and technological abilities of the Ark of the Covenant–one of the most sought after religious relics of all times and far more than just a box that contained the Ten Commandments. The biblical stories surrounding the Ark speak of a device with divine powers that was able to produce food, take down stonewalls, kill those that come in contact with it, and provide direct communication to God. Are these stories mere myth? Or did the Ark of the Covenant possess extraordinary powers? Just what was this incredible device? Were its powers the result of divine miracles? Or were they the product of advanced, extraterrestrial technology?

Episode 20 Aliens and the Creation of Man
S 9 E 20

Aliens and the Creation of Man

Aired on Jul 24, 2015

Why are humans so different from every other species on Earth? Did we evolve from apes–or is our intelligence the result of contact with an otherworldly source? Ancient Astronaut theorist, Giorgio Tsoukalos, presents the latest scientific and archeological information on who we are and where we may have come from. Charles Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection theorizes that man evolved from apes over millions of years. But new evidence suggests that 50,000 years ago humans experienced enormous changes some call the “Big Bang” of the brain. Could unexplained advances in human evolution be the work of interstellar beings? Might the biblical story of Adam and Eve be a re-telling of extraterrestrial events? And why do 5,000-year-old chronicles, and 10,000-year-old petroglyphs, link our ancient ancestors with star beings? Might evidence of alien contact help unlock the mystery of the Creation of Man?
