Season 12 / Episode 1 and airs on 29 April 2017 01:00
Ancient Aliens explores the controversial theory that extraterrestrials have visited Earth for millions of years. From the age of the dinosaurs to ancient Egypt, from early cave drawings to continued mass sightings in the US, each episode in this hit History series gives historic depth to the questions, speculations, provocative controversies, first-hand accounts and grounded theories surrounding this age old debate. Did intelligent beings from outer space visit Earth thousands of years ago?
Ancient cultures around the world tell stories of strange objects witnessed flying in the sky. But are these tales fiction, or might people living thousands of years ago actually have seen extraterrestrial crafts descending from the heavens? In the Hebrew Bible's Book of Ezekiel, the prophet describes a fiery chariot containing wheels within wheels, powered by angels. In ancient Ethiopian texts, King Solomon of Israel gave the Queen of Sheba a flying carpet, and traveled on one himself throughout the Middle East. And Chinese mythology explains that the god Huang Di emerged from the belly of a fire-breathing dragon to become China's first emperor. Could these accounts of fiery chariots, flying carpets and fire-breathing dragons really be descriptions of misunderstood technology involving mysterious crafts? Have otherworldly spacecraft been soaring across Earth's skies for thousands of years? What were our ancestors really describing in their ancient stories?
All over the world there are megalithic stone structures whose construction baffle stonecutters, scientists and archeologists. Is it possible that ancient humans managed to move and cut these gigantic rocks with the help of alien technology? From the 3,000 megalithic stones in the French village of Carnac to the precision-cut blocks at Puma Punku in Peru to the 12,000 year-old circular structures of Gobekli Tepe, carved multi-ton megaliths are found throughout ancient cultures. Yet the mystery of how the stones were cut and moved to build these formations remains. One possible answer may be found at Coral Castle, Florida, where in the 1930s an anti-gravity device was allegedly used to move 30-ton coral blocks to create the giant sculpted gardens. Massive stone ruins mark what we believe to be ancient burial sites, temples and astronomical observatories--but how these megaliths were built cannot be explained.
A 2,000-year-old computer... a power plant inside the Great Pyramid... and a Nazi-era time machine with roots in the ancient history. Throughout the world, there are artifacts and stories that point to advanced technology in the distant past. Could these devices be products of our ancestors' imaginations or might ancient man have had access to extraterrestrial technology? Were ancient Egyptians able to generate electricity, perhaps even illuminating the corridors of the royal tombs with electric light bulbs? Did top-ranking Nazis secretly develop a time-travel machine that was used as an escape vehicle after their defeat in Europe? Could the Ark of the Covenant have been a sonic weapon? Many of the world's most mysterious devices have been here for thousands of years. Could they have been built with the help of extraterrestrial beings?
Throughout history, there are stories of strange beings unlike anything known to exist on Earth. Could they be more than just mythology? Could our ancestors' descriptions of heavenly visitors with bird-like wings be evidence of contact with extraterrestrial visitors called angels? Did giants really walk the Earth thousands of years ago? And if so, could they have been from another world? Or perhaps even the result of alien experimentation with our own DNA? Is it possible that elongated skulls found on numerous continents are evidence of humans mimicking the appearance of otherworldly visitors, as Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest? Or could they even be the skulls of extraterrestrials themselves? Could ancient history hold clues to the possibility that we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrials? If so, did they come to shape mankind's past--or its future?
The Reptilian alien is a fixture of science-fiction, from H.P. Lovecraft's tales of Valusians to the Cardassians in Star Trek, to the Visitors of the television series V. But could ancient myths about reptilian creatures provide evidence that they are more than just a pop-culture creation? Legends of serpent beings can be found on every continent. The Bible, the Quran and the ancient texts known as the Nag Hammadi codices all describe reptilian entities interacting with humans. In Mexico and Central America people worshiped the feather serpent god called Kukulkan or Quetzalcoatl. In India, the Nagas are half-human half-reptile gods who live underground in a place called Patala. And in China and Japan, many emperors claim to be the descendants of dragons. Could these stories represent real Reptilian beings that people all over the world actually encountered in the ancient past?
He is one of the most prolific inventors of the 20th century--and the man that actually electrified the world. Nikola Tesla shepherded mankind to a new industrial era and laid the groundwork for today's technological age--but could that have been by some otherworldly design? A man shrouded in mystery and intrigue, Tesla would speak about obtaining insights in a flash of genius, how he could visualize his inventions in full-detail and manipulate them in his mind, and his compulsion to invent the future. But he also claimed to have direct communication from 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?
It has been called the key to the universe and possibly the most important scientific breakthrough of all time. Could the so-called "God Particle" reveal the truth about our origins? And might clues to its significance have been left here on Earth thousands of years ago by extraterrestrial beings? The age-old question, "where did we come from?" remains a mystery, but in 2012, scientists at CERN laboratory announced the discovery of the "God Particle"--the subatomic particle that is believed to give mass to matter--and offers a closer understanding of just how the universe began. The discovery seemingly pitted science against religion. But could science and religion actually be kindred spirits? Many ancient religions and mythologies describe the origins of the universe in ways very similar to today's scientific explanations and proclaim that this information was given to them by otherworldy beings.
Stories of strange encounters accompany many of history's major events. Is it merely coincidence? Or might it be evidence of extraterrestrial intervention? In ancient myths from cultures around the globe, gods are often portrayed intervening in human affairs. The Sumerian gods are said to have created mankind; the Hebrews believe God gave Moses man's first laws, the Ten Commandments, and the angel Gabriel reportedly shared divine wisdom with the prophet Muhammad. But is it possible that these supernatural visitations were not actually the work of the gods--but rather a race of extraterrestrials using advanced technology to create and shape our civilization? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe aliens may have helped guide mankind in the remote past--and that evidence for this stunning conclusion can be found sprinkled throughout human history.
From the beginning of recorded history, humans have told stories about beings with super-human strength, super-sonic speed, and supernatural abilities. The ancients had heroic tales about Zeus, Thor, and Hanuman while today we have superhero stories about Superman, Batman, and Spider-man. Mythologists say these epic stories resemble each other because they may have all come from a common set of oral legends created eons ago by our earliest ancestors. But might there be another, more otherworldly reason that the world's heroic myths are so similar? Is it possible, as many Ancient Astronaut Theorists contend, that these stories are actually based on extraordinary-- and possibly extraterrestrial--beings that lived on Earth in the distant past?
