Ancient Aliens - Unerklärliche Phänomene

Follow!

Die Dokumentarserie geht der Frage nach, ob es möglich ist, dass intelligente Lebensformen bereits vor vielen tausend Jahren die Erde besuchten und mit ihren Technologien die Geschichte und Entwicklung der Menschheit spürbar beeinflussten. Immer wieder tauchen an verschiedenen Orten der Erde Indizien auf, die Rückschlüsse auf außerirdische Einflüsse zulassen und Forschern Rätsel aufgeben. Seien es antike Höhlenzeichnungen von unbekannten Kreaturen, Überreste von Landepisten in Peru oder indische Texte, die die „fliegenden Maschinen der Götter“ beschreiben. In der Sendung werden Berichte über Sichtungen unbekannter Flugobjekte analysiert, mysteriöse Orte wie das Bermuda Dreieck oder die „Zone der Stille“ in Mexiko untersucht und rätselhafte Bauwerke vorgestellt, deren Errichtung durch Menschenhand unmöglich erscheint.

Chariots, Gods & Beyond

What if life on Earth began in outer space? Millions of people accept the theory that intelligent life forms visited Earth thousands of years ago and were worshiped as gods by primitive man. Are monuments like Stonehenge and Easter Island the last remains of an ancient alien visitation? From unexplainable super structures, to knowledge of the solar system, mathematics, and even the ability to make electricity, this special explores evidence of super-human influences on ancient man and embarks on an around-the-world search for answers. It's an investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.

Faces of the Gods

Tales of angels and giants in the ancient world are examined to determine if the beings stem from mythology or extraterrestrial visits and experimentation on human DNA, and bizarre discoveries around the world may be the key to getting the answers.

The Visionaries

Scientists theorize that when mankind encounters extraterrestrials, we'll need to speak to them through the universal language of mathematics and binary code. But is it possible that extraterrestrials have already been communicating with our greatest mathematicians and engineers? Might they have somehow aided them in bringing about the space age and computers? Ancient Astronaut theorists say yes. As evidence, they point to the true father of the space program, Nikolai Fyodorov, a "Cosmist" who believed that human civilization had its origins in outer space and that it was our destiny to return to the cosmos. Wernher von Braun was greatly influenced by Fyodorov and he was motivated by a similar, secret belief when he ran the mission that put the first man on the moon. Is it possible that humanity's greatest visionaries have been carrying out an extraterrestrial master plan?

5

Secrets of the Mummies

Researchers discuss the possibility that the global practice of mummification is proof that extraterrestrials visited Earth in the past.

Hinterlassenschaften

Falls Außerirdische die Erde besuchten, welche Spuren hinterließen sie? In indischen Sanskrit-Texten, die sich bis auf das Jahr 6.000 vor Christus zurückdatieren lassen, finden sich Beschreibungen von Flugmaschinen, den Vimanas. Megalithanlagen in Ägypten wurden nachweisbar mit Präzisionswerkzeugen bearbeitet. Hatten Außerirdische etwas damit zu tun?

2

Die Besucher

Chinesische Legenden erzählen von einem Herrscher, der auf einem fliegenden Drachen reitend auf die Erde kommt. Oder war es eher ein Raumschiff? Verfechter der Prä-Astronautik-Hypothese glauben, dass Außerirdische nicht nur Kontakt mit Menschen hatten, sondern auch den Lauf der Geschichte änderten.

3

Mission Erde

Hinweise aus vielen alten Kulturen lassen vermuten, dass Außerirdische die Erde erforschten, Rohstoffe abbauten, mit Menschen experimentierten und ganze Gebiete eroberten.

4

Begegnungen der dritten Art

Berichte über Begegnungen mit fremden Wesen und mysteriösen Flugobjekten gibt es seit Anbeginn der Menschheit. Könnten diese UFO-Sichtungen Beweis dafür sein, dass Außerirdische längst unter uns leben?

5

Die Rückkehr

Was würde passieren, wenn Außerirdische Kontakt mit uns aufnähmen? Existieren Pläne, wer die Menschheit vertreten würde und wie würden wir kommunizieren? Was geschieht wenn sie zurückkommen? Einige glauben, dass dies bereits geschehen ist.

Mysteriöse Orte

Geheimnisumwobene Orte gibt es auf der ganzen Welt: Flugzeuge und Schiffe verschwinden im berühmten Bermuda Dreieck. Magnetische Anomalien haben in Mexikos Zone der Stille nicht nur Raketen von ihrem Kurs abgebracht, sondern scheinen auch Meteoriten anzuziehen. Ein alter Torbogen in einer Felswand in Peru soll die Tür zu einer anderen Welt sein. Das Markawasi Plateau zeigt seltsame Felsformationen, die von einer höher entwickelten Zivilisation zurückgelassen worden sein sollen. Bestehen eventuell Verbindungen zwischen diesen Orten?

2

Götter und Außerirdische

Mythen und Legenden sind meist erfundene Geschichten über mächtige Götter, mutierte Giganten und furchterregende Monster. Aber wie kann es sein, dass so viele Kulturen, die durch große Entfernungen getrennt sind, alle dieselben Geschichten erzählen? Sind sie etwa Augenzeugenberichte historischer Astronauten, die auf die Erde kamen? Waren die Halbgötter der Mythologie die Kinder aus Verbindungen zwischen Menschen und Außerirdischen? Waren diese Außerirdischen das fehlende Glied, das die menschliche Evolution beschleunigte und uns zu dem gemacht hat, was wir heute sind?

3

Versunkene Welten

Überall auf der Erde gibt es antike Städte unter Wasser. Wissenschaftler überlegen, ob diese Unterwasserwelten Überreste unbekannter Zivilisationen sein könnten oder sogar Beweise für extraterrestrisches Leben auf der Erde liefern. Ist die verlorene Stadt Atlantis eventuell eine antike Alien-Metropole? Am Boden des Titicaca-Sees in Peru wurden Tempelruinen gefunden. Dieser Fund stützt die lokalen Legenden einer UFO-Basis unter Wasser. Auch antike indische Texte berichten von versunkenen Städten, in denen Wesen von anderen Planeten und Menschen vor tausenden Jahren gemeinsam lebten.

4

Im Untergrund

Wurde die Geschichte der Menschheit von anderen Planeten und ihren Bewohnern beeinflusst? Beweise dafür soll es in Tunneln und Höhlen der Erde geben. In einer Höhle in Ecuador wurden Bücher aus Metall gefunden. Wissenschaftler ergründen, ob es sich dabei um Aufzeichnungen über außerirdische Technologien handelt. Weitere Untersuchungen finden in einer unterirdischen Stadt in der Türkei statt. Es wird vermutete, dass diese mit Hilfe von Aliens gebaut wurde.

5

Technologien im dritten Reich

Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde angeblich ein Flugzeug nach einer außerirdischen Vorlage entworfen. Bekam Hitler bei seinem Vorhaben, die Welt zu beherrschen, Unterstützung von Aliens?

6

Fremde Technologien

Todesstrahlen, High-Tech-Raketen, Waffen mit Schallschutz - moderne Techniken oder jahrhunderte alte Ideen? Alte Texte und frühgeschichtliche Kunstwerke lassen vermuten, dass mit Kanonen bestückte Streitwägen und Flugzeuge schon viel früher existierten. Beziehen sich diese Beschreibungen vielleicht auf fliegende Untertassen oder Raumschiffe? Haben Besucher aus dem Weltall ihre weiterentwickelte Technologie auf der Erde zurück gelassen? Wurden die Geheimnisse der Antischwerkraft und Lasertechnologie vielleicht nicht mit unserem Wissen entschlüsselt?

7

Engel und Außerirdische

Seit Millionen Jahren scheint außerirdisches Leben erstmals nachweisbar zu sein. In der Dokumentation werden Sichtungen und Phänomene aus längst vergangener Zeit sowie der Gegenwart untersucht. Die Wissenschaftler stoßen auf Informationen, die in historische Texte eingebettet sind und dekodieren weitere aus alten Artefakten. Liefern diese Hinweise auf mögliche Verbindungen zu UFO-Erscheinungen?

Liefern diese Hinweise auf mögliche Verbindungen zu UFO-Erscheinungen?

9

Unheilsbringer

Wenn tatsächlich Außerirdische die Erde besucht haben, sind sie dann für dort auftretende Katastrophen verantwortlich? Historische Beschreibungen verweisen auf außerirdische Schlachten, die weit reichende Zerstörungen verursacht haben. Es gibt Bericht über UFOs, die sich in der Nähe von Naturkatastrophen aufhielten. In historischen Büchern wird von der apokalyptischen Schlacht zwischen Gut und Böse gesprochen, die unsere Welt zerstören wird. Sind diese Texte Beweise dafür, dass die Außerirdischen für das Ende der Menschheit stehen? Oder bedeuten sie unsere Rettung in Zeiten der Zerstörung?

10

Botschaften aus dem All

Berichte über Begegnungen zwischen Menschen und himmlischen Wesen gibt es seit Beginn der Menschheit. Viele dieser Sichtungen führten zu moralischen, philosophischen und künstlerischen Inspirationen. Aber waren es wirklich himmlische Wesen oder gar Außerirdische von anderen Welten? Sind unsere heiligen Schriften vielleicht das Wort Gottes oder Ratgeber, die uns von weiterentwickelten Zivilisationen gegeben wurden? Wenn das wahr ist, warum kommunizieren diese Wesen aus anderen Welten mit uns?

Der Einstein-Faktor

War Albert Einstein ein Genie? Oder war er sogar übermenschlich? Könnte es sein, dass es bei berühmten Wissenschaftlern wie Albert Einstein, Galileo, Archimedes und Aristoteles eine außerirdische Verbindung gab? Einige Forscher sind dieser Meinung.

1

Im Wilden Westen

Auf dem Friedhof von Aurora soll der Körper eines Außerirdischen liegen, dessen Raumschiff im Jahr 1897 angeblich abstürzte. Felszeichnungen in Utah zeigen seltsame Kreaturen, deren Kleidung an Raumanzüge erinnern. Im 19. Jahrhundert berichteten Farmer aus dem Süden Kaliforniens von einem geheimnisvollen Wesen, das dem Lake Elizabeth entsprungen sei. Cowboys in Tombstone behaupteten, einen riesigen Vogel aus Metall abgeschossen zu haben. Hatten die Bewohner des Wilden Westens tatsächlich Kontakt zu Besuchern aus dem All?

2

Fantastische Gestalten

In alten Hindu-Schriften wird von einer riesigen fliegenden Kreatur berichtet. Diese wurde als Garuda bezeichnet. Bei ihrer Landung auf der Erde soll diese gebebt haben. Es wird vermutet, dass es sich hierbei weniger um ein Monster als um ein Raumschiff gehandelt hat. Hybriden wie der Zentaur, Minotaurus und die Medusa werden nicht mehr nur als mythologische Figuren verstanden. Diese furchteinflößenden Wesen könnten das Ergebnis außerirdischer Transplantationsprozesse sein.

3

Orte des Glaubens

Heilige Stätten und rätselhafte Monumente laden vielerorts zu Spekulationen über ihren Ursprung ein. Der Tempelberg in Jerusalem gilt als himmlisches Tor. Im Heiligen Schrein in Mekka gibt es einen schwarzen Stein, der vom Himmel gefallen sein soll. Der Tempel in Baalbek im Libanon wurde auf einem riesigen Steinkonstrukt errichtet, das einem Landeplatz gleicht. Sind dies Orte der Huldigung Gottes oder Plätze, die auf Kontakt mit Wesen von anderen Planeten hinweisen?

4

Geheimnisvolles Gold

Verbindet Gold die Geschichte der Menschheit mit Aktivitäten von Bewohnern anderer Planeten? In Südafrika gibt es eine Kirche, die angeblich den Schlüssel zur Goldherstellung bewahren und ein Tor zu einem anderen Teil des Universums sein soll. In einem kleinen Dorf in Peru glauben die Einwohner, dass UFO-Sichtungen mit einem verlorenen Goldschatz zusammenhängen, der am Boden des Lake Puray liegen soll. Auch der Sphinx von Gizeh wird ein Geheimnis nachgesagt: Unter ihr soll sich eine Bibliothek aus Gold befinden, die von Außerirdischen erbaut wurde.

5

Rituale

Frühzeitliche Rituale dienten dem Menschen dazu, in Kontakt mit Geistern und Göttern zu treten. Sie sollten eine Verbindung zu einer anderen Dimension herstellen. Solche Rituale haben zu zahlreichen Spekulationen angeregt. Manche glauben, dass Zeremonien, wie sie bei Krönungen oder Beerdigungen stattfinden, ursprünglich außerirdische Besucher nachahmen sollten. Welchen Zweck erfüllten frühzeitliche Rituale wirklich?

6

Antike Bauwerke

Einige erste Bauwerke der Menschheitsgeschichte sollen mit Hilfe von außerirdischen Technologien erbaut worden sein. In einer alten Bergfestung in Peru deuten Spuren darauf hin, dass dort laserähnliche Präzisionsinstrumente beim Bau verwendet wurden. Indische Tempel wurden angeblich so gebaut, dass sie kosmische Energie nutzbar machen können. In Malta soll eine akustische Kammer existieren, die zur Kommunikation mit Bewohnern anderer Planeten dient. Deutet dies darauf hin, dass Außerirdische vor Jahrtausenden die Erde besuchten?

7

Seuchen und Epidemien

Rätselhafte Bakterienstämme stellen Wissenschaftler weltweit vor Herausforderungen. Woher kommen diese? Während der Pest im Mittelalter berichteten Augenzeugen von bronzefarbenen, fliegenden Schiffen, die einen seltsamen Dunst abgesondert haben sollen. Der NASA-Wissenschaftler Richard Hoover soll ebenfalls Beweise für die Existenz von Lebensformen auf Meteoriten gefunden haben. Dies führt zu Spekulationen darüber, ob Auslöser für Seuchen und Epidemien aus dem Weltall stammen könnten.

8

Das Vermächtnis

Meist erinnern nur noch Legenden und Ruinen an längst vergangene Reiche. Es gibt Spekulationen darüber, dass unter den Überresten alter Zivilisationen Hinweise auf außerirdische Besucher versteckt sind. Seltsame Steinzeichnungen der Maya könnten darauf hindeuten, dass die Stadt Copan von Wesen anderer Planeten regiert wurde. Der Stamm der Nazca soll ebenfalls Sternengöttern gehuldigt und auf ihre Rückkehr gewartet haben. Könnten die Errungenschaften alter Zivilisationen auf mehr hinweisen als die Ergebnisse frühzeitlicher Folklore?

9

Tödliche Waffen

Im Laufe der Geschichte hat der technische Fortschritt zu gefährlichen Waffen geführt: angefangen bei im Feuer geschmiedeten Schwertern über Schießpulver, das mit seiner Kraft menschliche Körper zerstören kann, bis hin zu Raketen, die im Stande sind, ganze Städte zu vernichten. Jede einzelne ist in ihrer Wirkung noch lebensbedrohlicher als die vorherige. Es gibt Behauptungen, dass diese Waffen keine Erfindungen des Menschen waren, sondern mit Hilfe außerirdischer Wesen entwickelt wurden. Wäre dies möglich?

10

Stätten des Grauens

Sie zählen zu den gefährlichsten Orten der Welt: Über die Black Mountains in Australien wird erzählt, dass es dort vorzeitliche Schlangengötter gab und Wanderer in den Bergen spurlos verschwanden. Jedes Jahr pilgern Hunderte in die Wälder am Fuße des Fuji, um dort Selbstmord begehen. Es gibt bisher keine Hinweise, warum an diesen Orten Böses geschieht. Forscher vermuten, dass sich an diesen Orten in der Vergangenheit außerirdische Wesen aufgehalten und negative Energien hinterlassen haben.

11

Das Wissen der Gründerväter

Es soll zahlreiche Symbole und geheime Nachrichten geben, die Hinweise auf Besuche außerirdischer Wesen auf der Erde liefern. Einige dieser Botschaften führen angeblich bis zu den amerikanischen Gründervätern zurück. Es wird vermutet, dass sie ihr Wissen über die Existenz von Außerirdischen vor der Öffentlichkeit geheim hielten. Nur in vertraulichen Dokumenten sollen sie dieses Wissen verewigt haben. Hinweise darauf gibt es scheinbar überall - sogar in den Gründungsdokumenten der USA.

12

Tödliche Kulte

Seit Anbeginn der Menschheit fordern heidnische Bräuche in den unterschiedlichsten Kulturen menschliche Opfergaben. Immer wieder behaupten so genannte Auserwählte über Wissen zu verfügen, das nicht von dieser Welt stammt. Mit diesem bringen sie ihre Anhänger dazu, entsetzliche Gräueltaten zu begehen. Könnten die Vermutungen stimmen, dass diese vermeintlich ausersehenen Menschen nach dem Plan außerirdischer Wesen handeln oder gar von anderen Planeten stammen?

13

Verborgene Symbolik

Durch elektromagnetische Energie sollen so genannte Megalithmonumente miteinander verbunden sein. Prähistorische Ruinen ergeben trotz ihrer weit voneinander entfernten Standorte aus der Vogelperspektive eine Linie. Auf Denkmälern wurden eingeritzte mathematische Formeln gefunden, die mehr als fünftausend Jahren alt sein sollen. Noch immer sind viele Fragen zur Entstehung spektakulärer Bauten unbeantwortet. Wurden sie allein von Menschenhand geschaffen oder haben Bewohner anderer Planeten den damaligen Bauherren bei der Konstruktion geholfen?

14

Die Untoten

Seit Jahrtausenden berichten Menschen von seltsamen Begegnungen mit unheimlichen, seelenlosen Kreaturen. Ihre Geschichten handeln von verdammten Vampiren, Zombies, die aus ihren Gräbern auferstehen und Menschen, die im Kampf um Leben und Tod zwischen Himmel und Hölle gefangen sind. Doch beruhen diese Geschichten tatsächlich auf wahren Begebenheiten? Denn es gibt Annahmen, dass es sich bei diesen untoten Gestalten um Wesen von anderen Planeten handeln soll.

15

Übernatürliche Kräfte

Götter, Titanen und Superhelden: Die unglaublichen Geschichten gottgleicher Lebewesen mit übernatürlichen Kräften haben schon immer die Fantasie des Menschen angeregt. Steckt vielleicht viel mehr hinter diesen Erzählungen? Einige glauben, dass es sich bei diesen außergewöhnlichen Wesen um außerirdische Besucher handelt.

16

Die Entstsehung der Menschheit

Noch immer gibt es zahlreiche ungeklärte Fragen um die Entstehung der Menschheit. Der Mensch unterscheidet sich in vielen Bereichen von anderen Lebewesen der Erde. Stammt der Mensch tatsächlich vom Affen ab oder haben Wesen von anderen Planeten Einfluss auf die menschliche Evolution genommen? Angeblich zeigen 10.000 Jahre alte Felszeichnungen eine Verbindung zwischen unseren Vorfahren und Besuchern aus einer anderen Welt. Könnte der Beweis für eine außerirdische Existenz helfen, eines der größten Rätsel der Menschheit zu lösen?
Episode Description

1

The Doomsday Prophecies

The Maya created the most sophisticated calendar systems in the ancient world, and according to many scholars their Long Count Calendar will come to an end on December 21, 2012. What does this mean for mankind? Some researchers believe it will usher in the return of Bolon Yokte--a mysterious god associated with creation and war. Could this god actually be an extraterrestrial as some ancient astronaut theorists believe? Other scholars believe the end of the calendar will bring about a series of catastrophic events that may threaten the very existence of mankind. They point to a rare galactic alignment that will coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar as proof of an impending geological catastrophe. If these doomsday prophecies prove to be true, will it mean the end of the world as we know it? Or could it reveal some profound truth about the origins of the human race?

2

The Mayan Conspiracy

The Mayan civilization dominated Central America for nearly 2000 years, but by the 9th century A.D., the great Mayan cities were abandoned, and the Mayan people vanished. What could have happened to this advanced culture? Might the Maya have left clues as to how they surpassed other cultures in science, mathematics, time keeping, and most importantly, astronomy? In recent years, hieroglyphs have been decoded to reveal that the Maya were able to accurately predict shifts in the Earth's axis every 26,000 years. Inscriptions on the sarcophagus of their most prominent ruler, King Pakal, tell of a journey to the Milky Way. And a sophisticated calendar foretells of the end of the world in 2012. Most striking is their belief that knowledge was passed to them by otherworldly beings who descended from the sky. Could the ancient Maya have actually conspired with extraterrestrial visitors to plan the future--and even the very end of the world?

3

The Greys

Who are the beings with big heads and giant eyes that seem to have been visiting our planet for millennia? Known by researchers as the "greys," these mysterious beings have been depicted in rock-art and carved stone figures throughout the ages and all over the world. Who are they, what planet do they come from, and what do they want?

4

Aliens and Mega-Disasters

There are numerous historical, religious and mythic accounts of ancient civilizations being wiped out by volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, and meteors. Did god, or nature bring about such disasters? Or is it possible that celestial beings had a hand in the ancient world's catastrophic disasters?

5

The NASA Connection

NASA scientists, former astronauts and secret government files all point to the conclusion that there has been contact with extraterrestrial life in the past. Researchers examine this and other recent scientific evidence that may provide proof of alien contact in both the recent and ancient past.

6

Die Ruinen von Puma Punku

Die Ruinen von Puma Punku zählen zu den ältesten und rätselhaftesten der Welt. Niemand weiß, wer Puma Punka entworfen und gebaut hat. Forensische Beweise in Verbindung mit lokalen Mythen und Legenden deuten jedoch daraufhin, dass dieser Ort vermutlich von Außerirdischen bewohnt wurde. Ein Expertenteam untersucht die peruanischen Bauten und präsentiert neue Computeranalysen. Text: History

7

Aliens and Bigfoot

People on every continent have claimed to see the footprints of Bigfoot. And ancient myths and legends speak of an ape-like giant stalking the earth. What if, as Ancient Astronaut theorists believe, there is evidence to connect Bigfoot with an alien species that once visited Earth in the distant past?

8

The Da Vinci Conspiracy

Might an examination of Leonardo Da Vinci's masterful paintings, highly technical hand-drawn sketches, and private journals reveal knowledge of otherworldly technology and extraterrestrial beings?

9

The Time Travelers

Is it possible that sightings of alien beings or UFOs may actually be evidence of time travelers from the future? And might ancient astronauts actually be time travelers from our future? Scientists explore the theoretical possibility of time travel. How can it be achieved? And what might people from 10,000 years in the future look like?

10

Aliens and Dinosaurs

Angkor Wat, Cambodia, is the world’s largest ancient religious temple. Within its megalithic ruins, researches have discovered a depiction of a species of dinosaur – a stegosaurus. But how could the ancients have had knowledge of animals that mainstream science says died out millions of years ago? Why are dinosaurs extinct? Did an alien race of beings kill off the dinosaurs to make room for humankind?

11

Geheimnisvolle Pyramiden

Über tausende Jahre hinweg waren Pyramiden die größten Bauwerke der Erde. Die bekanntesten wurden in Ägypten und Mittelamerika erbaut, doch auch in anderen Teilen der Erde wie China, Afrika und Indonesien wurden Pyramiden entdeckt. Aber welchem Zweck dienten sie? Wissenschaftler erforschen Ähnlichkeiten und Verbindungen zwischen den mysteriösen Monumentalbauten.

12

Der Alien-Code

1980 wurden drei junge Soldaten in einen britischen Wald geschickt, um dort seltsame Lichter zu untersuchen. Angeblich fanden sie ein Raumschiff unbekannter Herkunft. Einer der Männer behauptet, dass ihm per Telepathie ein binärer Code übermittelt wurde, als er das UFO berührte. Später schrieb er diesen Code auf und übersetzte ihn. Das Militär befahl den drei Soldaten allerdings, nie wieder über den Vorfall zu sprechen. Warum werden solche UFO-Begegnungen weiterhin geheim gehalten und was könnten sie über unsere Vergangenheit verraten?

13

Kraftwerke

Ägyptische Hieroglyphen zeigen, dass in Gräbern und geheimen Kammern Glühbirnen verwendet wurden. In Mesopotamien fand man außerdem Artefakte, die Batterien gewesen sein könnten. Kannten die Menschen damals bereits Elektrizität? Wenn ja, wie haben sie diese Technologie entdeckt? Könnte es sein, dass sie Hilfe von Außerirdischen hatten

14

Ziel Orion

Warum waren die alten Kulturen weltweit so fasziniert vom Sternbild Orion? Manche Wissenschaftler weisen darauf hin, dass dieser Punkt am Sternenhimmel ein sogenanntes Stargate, ein Portal in unser Sonnensystem, gewesen sein könnte. Falls Außerirdische die Erde seit tausenden von Jahren besuchen, könnten sie also vom Orionnebel aus zu uns gekommen sein?

15

Der Einstein-Faktor

War Albert Einstein ein Genie? Oder war er sogar übermenschlich? Könnte es sein, dass es bei berühmten Wissenschaftlern wie Albert Einstein, Galileo, Archimedes und Aristoteles eine außerirdische Verbindung gab? Einige Forscher sind dieser Meinung.

1

Geheimnisvolle Gräber

Auf der ganzen Welt haben Archäologen alte Grabmäler entdeckt, die seltsame Gegenstände und Schriftzeichen enthalten. Man hat erstaunliche Ähnlichkeiten zwischen den verschiedenen Stätten gefunden. Wie kann es sein, dass die Grabkammern weit voneinander entfernter Kulturen sich so sehr ähneln? Anhänger der Theorie von frühzeitlichen Besuchern aus dem All glauben, dass diese Gräber mit Hilfe von Außerirdischen gebaut wurden und eventuell Portale sind, die uns mit außerirdischen Dimensionen verbinden.

2

Propheten und Weissagungen

Seit Jahrtausenden haben Propheten den Menschen Weissagungen und Nachrichten der Götter überbracht. Aber mit wem oder was haben diese Seher kommuniziert? Das Orakel von Delphi, Moses oder Nostradamus – sie sagten Katastrophen voraus, bildeten die Grundlage für neue Religionen und gründeten Zivilisationen. Doch die Frage bleibt: Woher kamen diese Informationen? Kann es sein, dass die Propheten Kontakt zu Außerirdischen hatten? Gibt es heutzutage ähnliche Seher unter uns?

3

Die Nasca-Linien

Erich von Dänikens Buch ‚Erinnerungen an die Zukunft‘ machte die geheimnisvollen Nasca-Linien bekannt. In der Form von Tieren, geometrischen Mustern und unidentifizierbaren Wesen durchziehen hunderte gigantische Linien die entlegene Wüste Perus. Wissenschaftler sind sich uneins, wer sie hinterlassen hat und warum. Anhänger der Prä-Astronautik glauben, dass die Linien einst von den Menschen der Region gezogen wurden, um die Götter zu ehren, die sie besuchten. Diese könnten es auf das große Nitrat-Vorkommen – einem wichtigen Bestandteil für Raketentreibstoff und Waffen – abgesehen haben.

4

Entführt

Travis Walton behauptet, 1975 von Außerirdischen entführt und auf ein Raumschiff gebracht worden zu sein. Einige Forscher sagen, dass solche Verschleppungen nicht nur ein Phänomen der heutigen Zeit sind, sondern seit Jahrtausenden passieren. Die hebräische Bibel etwa enthält Berichte von einigen unerklärlichen Entführungen. Jona, Moses, Ezekiel und Enoch wurden angeblich in andere Dimensionen verschleppt und wieder zurück gebracht.

5

Von Dänikens Theorien

Erich von Däniken ist der Begründer der Prä-Astronautik-Theorie. Seine kontroversen Bestseller haben sich in den letzten 40 Jahren mehr als 65 Millionen Mal weltweit verkauft. Für manche ist er ein Held, andere halten ihn für einen Ketzer. Erich von Dänikens Ansichten sind umstritten, doch seine Suche nach den außerirdischen Ursprüngen der Menschheit hat innerhalb einer kleinen, aber wachsenden Anhängerschaft Unterstützung gefunden.

6

Die Götter der Wikinger

Sie waren mächtige Krieger, die in glühenden Wagen durch den Himmel preschten und mit magischen Waffen kämpften: Odin, Frey und Thor. Die nordischen Götter, die von den Wikingern verehrt wurden, waren furchteinflößend und geheimnisvoll, aber waren sie wirklich göttliche Wesen oder gibt es vielleicht eine Verbindung zu Außerirdischen? Die Wikinger gehörten zu den technologisch am weitesten entwickelten Völkern ihrer Zeit, sie reisten über die Ozeane nach Afrika und sogar Nordamerika. Möglicherweise verdankten sie diese Errungenschaften Wesen von einem anderen Planeten.

7

Steinernde Monumente

Massive Steinkonstruktionen, die bis zum Himmel reichen und riesige Figuren, die tief unter der Erde begraben liegen – was brachte die Menschen der Vorzeit dazu, solch gigantische Steine, die mitunter ein Gewicht von mehreren Tonnen haben, zu bewegen? Und warum ähneln sich diese Monumente auf der ganzen Welt auf bemerkenswerte Weise? Möglicherweise gaben Außerirdische die Anweisung, diese Skulpturen zu errichten. Oder aber unsere Vorfahren versuchten, mit den Monolithen eine Verbindung zu außerirdischen Wesen herzustellen.

8

Die Macht der Drei

Schon vor tausenden von Jahren hatte die Zahl Drei eine besondere Bedeutung, die sich selbst heute noch in Kunst, Architektur, Wissenschaft, Literatur und Religion wiederfindet. Weltweit glauben viele Kulturen, u.a. auch die alten Ägypter, dass die Drei eine göttliche Zahl sei. Die Tafel, mit der Newton nach den Geheimnissen des Universums suchte, sprach von der Macht der Zahl drei. Sogar unsere DNA basiert auf einer Dreier-Struktur. Vielleicht verbindet diese Zahl die Menschheit mit dem Göttlichen oder Außerirdischen.

9

Die Kristallschädel

Die Kristallschädel – leuchtende Relikte in der Form menschlicher Schädel – sollen außerweltliche Artefakte sein, die die Geheimnisse des Universums entschlüsseln könnten oder sind sie doch nur Teil eines riesigen Schwindels. Weltweit wurden hunderte solcher Schädel gefunden. Doch nur 13 von ihnen sagt man magische Kräfte nach. Zusammengeführt bauen sie ein weltweites Netz auf, das das Wissen der Götter erweckt. Die Kristallschädel könnten die Wahrheit über die außerirdische Geschichte der Menschheit enthalten

10

Die Anunnaki

Die Sumerer im alten Mesopotamien gehörten zu den großen Entdeckern der menschlichen Zivilisation. Schrift, Ackerbau, Wissenschaft, Mathematik, Medizin, Astronomie, Gebäude, Militär, Schulen und Städteplanung gehen auf diese Menschen zurück, doch die Sumerer selbst schreiben dieses Wissen den Anunnaki zu. Diese riesige, geflügelte Götter sind vielleicht mehr als nur eine Legende. Die sumerischen Texte, die die Anunnaki beschreiben, könnten die kontroverse Theorie unterstützen, dass die menschliche Rasse von Außerirdischen erschaffen wurde.

11

Göttliche Magie

Wundersame Zauberer, mysteriöse Hexenmeister und göttliche Wesen mit unvorstellbarer Kraft. In der Vergangenheit wurde Magie auf viele Arten genutzt – von der Heilkunde bis hin zur Kommunikation mit den Göttern. Diese Folge beschäftigt sich mit der vermeintlichen Magie in der Anti

12

Saat des Bösen

Satan, der Teufel, der Fürst der Hölle – ganz gleich, wie er genannt wird, der Begriff ruft das Bild eines gehörnten Biests hervor, dessen einzige Absicht darin besteht, die Menschheit zu zerstören. Doch es gibt Hinweise darauf, dass der gefallene Engel missverstanden ist. Neue Interpretationen alter Texte lassen den Schluss zu, dass Satan ein Außerirdischer gewesen sein könnte, der mehr ein Verbündeter als ein Gegner der Menschheit war und den Grundstein der Zivilisation legte. Sein schlechter Ruf ist nur die Strafe dafür, dass er den frühen Menschen aus der Dunkelheit führte.

13

Außerirdische Medizin

Sind die jüngsten Durchbrüche in der Medizin das Resultat jahrelanger Forschung oder hat das medizinische Wissen seinen Ursprung nicht auf der Erde? Es gibt Hinweise, dass bereits in der Antike moderne medizinische Verfahren praktiziert wurden. Diese Folge geht der Frage nach, woher das Wissen über den menschlichen Körper stammt. In vielen Kulturen werden göttliche, vogelähnliche Figuren beschrieben, die vor tausenden von Jahren dieses Wissen den Menschen überließen. Waren sie Außerirdische?

14

Kaiser, Könige und Pharaonen

Mächtige Monarchen herrschten nach göttlichem Recht und Jahrhunderte alte Dynastien häuften riesige Reichtümer und Wissen an. Kann es sein, dass historische Herrscher ihre Positionen in Wirklichkeit mit Hilfe außerirdischer Kräfte erreichten? Die Anhänger der Prä-Astronautik glauben, dass die Mächtigen von Außerirdischen ausgewählt und geleitet wurden. Eventuell verbindet sie alle sogar ein Gen, das sie von den Aliens geerbt haben.

15

Rätselhafte Relikte

Weltweit haben Archäologen geheimnisvolle Reliquien entdeckt, die von antiken Kulturen verehrt wurden. Jetzt werden sie in Museen, Tempeln und Kirchen ausgestellt und Millionen von Menschen reisen von überall her an, um in ihrer Gegenwart zu sein. Könnte die Wahrheit über den Ursprung der Menschheit in diesen Stoffen, Metallen, Steinen und Knochen liegen? Bekommen die Menschen durch diese geheimnisvollen Reliquien Zugang zu einer göttlichen Kraft
Episode Description

1

Geheimnisvolle Inseln

Legenden über geheimnisvolle Inseln, Hochkulturen und Paradiese beschäftigen die Menschen seit jeher. Steckt hinter diesen Geschichten mehr, als es den Anschein hat? Die Erforschung der entlegensten Orte der Erde könnte Beweise für außerirdisches Leben liefern.

2

Die Bundeslade

Die Bundeslade ist eins der meistgesuchten religiösen Relikte aller Zeiten und weit mehr, als nur eine Box, die die Zehn Gebote enthielt. Die Geschichten, die sich um die Bundeslade ranken, sagen ihr göttliche Kraft nach. Sie soll nicht nur Essen produzieren, Steinmauern niederreißen und diejenigen töten können, die direkt mit ihr in Kontakt kommen, sondern auch direkte Kommunikation zu Gott ermöglichen können. Die Frage ist, ob diese Geschichten nur Mythen sind oder ob die Bundeslade tatsächlich übernatürliche Kräfte besitzt.

3

Heilige Berge

Viele alte Kulturen hielten Berge für das Zuhause der Götter. Die Griechen glaubten, dass ihre mächtigsten Götter vom Olymp aus über das Universum herrschen, in Makedonien wurden von Bergen aus Himmelsbewegungen festgehalten und in Peru pilgern Nachfahren der Inka bis heute, um mit Berggeistern zu kommunizieren. Diese Götter könnten Außerirdische gewesen sein, die abgelegene Gipfel nutzten, um mit den Menschen zu interagieren.

4

Portale

Legenden auf der ganzen Welt sprechen von heiligen Eingängen, die zum Land der Götter führen sollen. Die Frage ist, ob diese Sternentore nur Mythos sind oder ob interstellare Reisen damals tatsächlich stattgefunden haben. Bei den alten Griechen, den Inkas und auch in Nordmexiko beschreiben Legenden seltsame, außerirdische Kreaturen, die auftauchten und wieder verschwanden.

5

Die ersten Siedler

Seltsame Felszeichnungen von 8000 v. Chr., unerklärliche Sichtungen und eine beängstigende Anomalie, die den Westen der USA plagt – vielleicht deutet das alles darauf hin, dass in der Geschichte der USA mehr zu finden ist, als die Geschichtsbücher verraten. Eventuell könnte es Kontakt zu Außerirdischen gegeben haben. Im kolonialen Amerika wurde immer wieder über seltsame Lichter und unerklärliche Wetteranomalien berichtet.

6

Erbgut

Auf jedem Kontinent gibt es Geschichten über Kinder, die wegen ihrer erstaunlichen Fähigkeiten oder ihrer enormen Kenntnisse herausragen. Angeblich verfügen sie über Wissen, das sie gar nicht haben können oder sollten. Griechische, ägyptische und viele andere Kulturen berichten von Kindern, die halb Mensch, halb Gott sein sollen. Es stellt sich die Frage, ob es sich bei diesen Geschichten um mehr als einen Mythos handelt.

7

Verborgene Schätze

Versiegelte Schatzkammern, auf denen ein tödlicher Fluch liegen soll, mysteriöse Reliquien, die von Außerirdischen beschützt werden und Reichtümer, die so wertvoll sind, dass sie bereits viele Menschen das Leben kosteten: Auf jedem Kontinent existieren Geschichten über unglaubliche Schätze, die seit Jahrhunderten verschollen sind. Könnten diese antiken Relikte absichtlich versteckt worden sein und von extraterrestrischen Wesen beschützt werden?

8

Leben auf dem Mars

Der Mars hat einen besonderen Platz in der menschlichen Geschichte. Erstmals erfassten ihn ägyptische Astrologen im Kalender des Senenmut. Dem roten Planeten kommt darüber hinaus eine zentrale Rolle in der Astrologie der Maya zu. Neue Übersetzungen sumerischer und babylonischer Schöpfungsmythen erwähnen ein katastrophales Ereignis auf dem Mars. Liegt die Faszination mit dem roten Planeten an seiner Farbe oder einer tiefen außerirdischen Verbindung zu ihm? Die NASA erforscht seit 40 Jahren diesen Planeten und könnte Beweise auf außerirdisches Leben gefunden haben.

9

The Shamans

Throughout history, spiritual leaders known as shamans have healed, protected and advised their people. But are they simply putting on elaborate ceremonies? Or could they be in contact with extraterrestrial realms? The Mongol army crushed their enemies and built a massive empire with the help of powerful shamans who could manipulate the weather. Amazonian shamans believe otherworldly beings taught them how to create a powerful brew that allows them to travel beyond Earth to gain knowledge. And on the desert plains of the Kalahari, the San Bushmen practice elaborate trance dances that unlock supernatural capabilities in their healers. Can shamans really communicate with otherworldly beings? Is it possible that through these spiritual mediators, extraterrestrials were able to influence mankind in the distant past? And could such celestial communication continue even today?

10

Aliens and Insects

Earth is home to 10 quintillion insects. In cultures throughout the world, insects have been honored, feared and even revered as gods. But might these strange creatures that have inhabited Earth for hundreds of millions of years provide a link to extraterrestrial beings? Is it possible the ancient Egyptians encountered alien beings that had an insect-like appearance? Are the scorpion-tailed locust described in the Book of Revelations some type of advanced weaponry wielded by an extraterrestrial being? Might the Ant People that appear in both Greek and Native American mythology really be grey aliens? Is it possible that there is a connection between insects and aliens? Are insects related to beings from beyond our world, as some Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest? And if so, might they have a secret purpose we have yet to discover?

11

Alien Breeders

Demonic seduction… hybrid offspring… and strange abductions. In cultures throughout the world, there are tales of intimate encounters with otherworldly beings. But could these stories be more than just mythology? Scientific deconstruction of human genetic makeup has revealed that our origins are not what we once believed. Biologists have determined that early humans mated with several other species of intelligent hominids. Neanderthals, Denisovans, and a third–as of yet unidentified–species may also be represented in our DNA. Is it possible that tales spanning from fallen angels to Greek gods, medieval incubus and succubus to today's extraterrestrial sexual encounters are all one in the same? And if so, is it all part of a greater agenda? Might examining these experiences provide not only evidence of extraterrestrial sexual intervention in the remote past, but also reveal the true nature of mankind's origins?

12

Alien Transports

From ancient accounts of fiery chariots in the sky in the Bible and flying carpets in Ethiopian texts to fire-breathing dragons in Chinese mythology, a look is taken into the possibility of the phenomena being extraterrestrial.

13

Mysterious Structures

Theorists explain how alien technology may be responsible for massive structures like the 3,000 megalithic stones in the French village of Carna, precision-cut blocks at Puma Punku in Peru and the Gobekli Tepe's 12,000-year-old circular structures.

14

Mysterious Devices

A potential link between alien technology and mysterious devices from ancient cultures is examined.

15

The Reptilians

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 Central and South America people worship the feathered serpent god called Kulkukan 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?

16

The Tesla Experiment

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?

17

The God Particle

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.

18

Alien Encounters

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.

19

Aliens and Superheroes

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?

Special Edition: Faces of the Gods

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?

1

Forbidden Caves

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? Or might there be knowledge actually stored within the crystals and minerals that cover the walls of caves, as some Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest?

Geheimnis der Sphinx

Zum Start der siebten Staffel „Ancient Aliens – Unerklärliche Phänomene“ widmet sich HISTORY den legendären Bauwerken der alten Ägypter.

3

Extraterrestrische Einflüsse

Anhänger der Prä-Astronautik behaupten, dass außerirdische Einflüsse für unsere technologische Entwicklung verantwortlich sind. So beschreibt zum Beispiel das äthiopische Henochbuch göttliche Wesen, die als Wächter auf die Erde herabkommen, um die Menschheit zu unterstützen. In Inka-Legenden schafft der Gott Viracocha Menschen und lehrt sie Astronomie, Landwirtschaft und andere Künste.

4

Geniale Köpfe

Große Denker haben mit ihren Erkenntnissen und Fähigkeiten die Zivilisation vorangetrieben. Die meisten von ihnen sagen, dass sie die Ursache ihrer Besonderheit nicht kennen. Prä-Astronautiker glauben, dass die Kräfte der Inspiration aus einer außerweltlichen Quelle stammen.

5

Geheimnisvolle Mumien

Die Alten Ägypter glaubten, die Mumifizierung gewährleiste den Eintritt ins nächste Leben. Japanische Mönche praktizierten hingegen eine Selbstmumifizierung und die Inkas konsultierten die balsamierten Überreste ihrer Könige, um Staatsgeschäfte zu debattieren. Prä-Astronautiker glauben, die weltweit praktizierte Mumifizierung sei von Außerirdischen entwickelt worden.

6

Existenz nach dem Tod

Im Lauf der Geschichte gab es immer wieder Berichte über Wesen, die angeblich den Schleier zwischen Leben und Tod lüften können. Einige behaupten, haitianische Priester üben eine uralte Praxis aus, um ihre Toten aus den Gräbern zu rufen. Außerdem wurden angeblich mikroskopisch kleine Organismen gefunden, die sich selbst wiederbeleben können, nachdem sie wochenlang „geschlafen“ haben.

7

Verschlüsselte Nachrichten

Manche glauben, dass in religiösen Texten sowie in der Gestaltung und dem Standort antiker Monumente geheime Botschaften verborgen sind, die den Sinn unserer Existenz offenbaren. In vielen Zivilisationen der Welt wurden kryptische Botschaften gefunden. Es könnte sein, dass der Schlüssel zu diesen Geheimnissen in numerologischen, geometrischen oder geologischen Rätseln liegt.

8

Die Sintflut

Die Geschichte von der großen Flut, die Gott schickte, um die Menschheit auszulöschen, wird in vielen Kulturen rund um die Welt erzählt. Hinweise deuten darauf hin, dass einige Aspekte dieser Erzählungen tatsächlich wahr sein könnten. Prä-Astronautiker sind der Ansicht, dass die Menschheit der Auslöschung nur knapp entgangen ist und dass die Himmelswesen uns wieder beschützen werden, wenn eine neue Katastrophe die Erde heimsucht.

9

Aliens and the Civil War

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?

10

Hidden Pyramids

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.

11

The Vanishings

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?

12

The Alien Agenda

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?

The Tesla Experiment

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?

16

Alien Power Plants

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?

17

The Mystery of Puma Punku

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?

Zeichen der Vergangenheit

Riesige, von Menschen angelegte Höhlen, unerklärliche Strukturen und Entdeckungen unter Wasser deuten darauf hin, dass schon vor Tausenden von Jahren eine fortschrittliche Zivilisation die Erde bewohnte. Immer wieder fördern Archäologen Artefakte und Orte zutage, die der konventionellen Zeitachse der Geschichte der Menschheit widersprechen. Vielleicht hat eine überlegene Kultur schon Jahrzente früher, als bisher angenommen, auf der Erde existiert. Möglicherweise sind die Geschichten von einer Zeit als Götter den Planeten bewohnten mehr als ein Mythos.

Geheimnisse der NASA

Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg schloss sich der deutsche Luftfahrtingenieur Wernher von Braun dem US-amerikanischen Militär- und Raumfahrtprogramm an. Er wurde schnell einer der führenden Wissenschaftler und war am Bau einer ballistischen Rakete, des ersten amerikanischen Satelliten und der Saturn-V-Rakete beteiligt, die den Menschen ermöglichte, den Mond zu erreichen. Seine Vorhersagen, dass die Menschen den Mars erkunden und eine Raumstation bauen würden, haben sich bewahrheitet. Wie konnte von Braun seinen Zeitgenossen so weit voraus sein?

Gut und Böse

Gut und Böse, Licht und Dunkel, Gott und Satan. In fast jeder Kultur gibt es Geschichten von gegensätzlichen, die übernatürlich oder nicht von dieser Welt sind. Im Laufe der Zeit gab es oft Menschen, denen unterstellt wurde, mit dunklen Mächten in Kontakt zu sein. So glaubte der Mönch Rasputin ein Medium zu einem jenseitigen Reich zu sein und der Okkultist Aleister Crowley behauptete, durch dunkle Magie ein nichtmenschliches Wesen heraufbeschworen zu haben.

5

Die Quelle des Göttlichen

Prä-Astronautiker glauben, dass die in verschiedenen Kulturen verehrten Götter Außerirdische waren. Sollte das wahr sein, bleibt die Frage, wie sich beispielsweise menschenähnliche Vögel und Reptilien, Götter mit blauer Haut oder Wesen mit zu vielen Gliedmaßen erklären lassen. 1928 entdeckte der Archäologe Julio Tello die Schädel von Paracas in Peru. Dabei handelt es sich um Köpfe, deren Schädelvolumen 25 Prozent größer als das der größten bekannten menschlichen Schädel ist. Manche glauben, dass dies Überreste außerirdischen Ursprungs sind.

6

Eine andere Erde

Die Menschen haben Milliarden ausgegeben, um eine „andere Erde“ zu finden. Mithilfe des Kepler-Teleskops wurden bereits Tausende von Planeten identifiziert, auf denen Leben möglich ist. Das könnte die uralte Frage klären, ob wir allein im Universum sind. Denn genau wie wir nach bewohnbaren Planeten suchen, könnten das früher Außerirdische versucht haben. Der Dogon-Stamm in Afrika glaubt, dass seine Götter aus dem Sirius-Sternsystem kommen, und die Maya assoziieren ihre Götter mit den Plejaden.

7

Kreaturen der Tiefsee

Auf der internationalen Raumstation entdeckten russische Kosmonauten im August 2014, dass lebender Plankton Teile der Fenster bedeckte. Wenn Meereslebewesen im All überleben können, könnte das bedeuten, dass auch außerirdische Lebensformen unsere Meere besiedeln. Seit jeher gibt es Berichte über merkwürdige Kreaturen, die sich im Wasser verstecken. Während viele Erzählungen über Seeungeheuer rein mythologisch sind, leben in den Ozeanen schätzungsweise bis zur einer Million Spezies, von denen zwei Drittel noch unbekannt sind.

8

Kornkreise

Aus fünfzig verschiedenen Ländern wurden bereits mehr als 10.000 Kornkreise gemeldet. Die Sendung untersucht, ob diese Teil eines groß angelegten Betrugs sind und wer oder was dahintersteckt.

9

Krieg der Aliens

Am 19. März 2002 wurde Gary McKinnon verhaftet, weil er sich in 97 Pentagon- und NASA-Computer gehackt hatte. Er behauptet, dort Beweise für eine geheime amerikanische Raumflotte gefunden zu haben. Wenn die USA tatsächlich solch ein Programm betreiben, stellt sich die Frage, ob sie sich auf einen Weltraumkrieg gegen andere Nationen oder Spezies vorbereiten. Prä-Astronautiker nehmen an, dass verschiedene Gruppen von Aliens seit Jahrtausenden ihre Konflikte auf der Erde ausgetragen haben und dadurch in die Geschichten verschiedener Völker eingegangen sind.

10

Zerstörte Beweise

Es gibt Regionen auf der Welt, die aufgrund von Krieg und Unstabilität für Forschungen unzugänglich sind. Diese Orte sind oft Schauplatz für die Zerstörung antiker Artefakte und Dokumente über die Herkunft und Geschichte der Menschheit. Im Irak und in Syrien wurden tausende antike Reliquien mutwillig zerstört. Auch in Ägypten sind Museen und Ausgrabungsstätten mehrfach geplündert worden. Prä-Astronautiker glauben, dass so wichtige Objekte und Informationen über uraltes Wissen, Technologie und vielleicht sogar die Wahrheit über unsere außerirdische Vergangenheit verloren gegangen sind.

Fund in der Antarktis

Die Antarktis ist der am wenigsten erforschte Kontinent. Er ist an manchen Stellen von über vier Kilometern Eis bedeckt, doch auf Satellitenaufnahmen kann man etwas sehen, das an die Spitzen von Pyramiden erinnert. Prä-Astronautiker können sich vorstellen, dass eine eisfreie Antarktis in ferner Vergangenheit von Außerirdischen kolonisiert wurde, bis die Eiszeit begann. Wissenschaftler haben von magnetischen Anomalien berichtet, die unter dem Eis messbar sind und es gab anscheinend merkwürdige Sichtungen. Die Wahrheit über unsere außerirdischen Wurzeln könnte unter dem Eis liegen.

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?

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?

Mysterium Mars

Man erwartet, dass die Menschen in den nächsten 20 Jahren Siedler zum Mars schicken werden. Astronauten nehmen eine sechsmonatige Reise auf sich, um auf dem Mars zu leben und nie wieder zur Erde zurückzukehren. Könnte es einen Grund aus unserer Vergangenheit geben, warum die Menschheit vom Leben auf dem Mars fasziniert ist? Ist es möglich, dass außerirdisches Leben vom Mars die Menschheit erschaffen hat? Die Reise zum Mars könnte also unsere Herkunft enthüllen und den Schlüssel zum langfristigen Überleben der Menschheit bedeuten.

Mysteries of the Sphinx

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.

Aliens Among Us

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,

Höhere Intelligenz

Im 21. Jahrhundert entwickelt sich die Technologie in eine radikale neue Richtung: das Verschmelzen von Mensch und Maschine. Sogenannte „intelligente Drogen“, Nanoroboter und mit dem Drucker hergestellte Organe sind nur einige Erfindungen, die die Evolution des Menschen in eine neue Spezies ermöglichen könnten. Transhumanisten stellen sich eine Zukunft vor, in der wir Cyborgs werden, eine überlegene Intelligenz erreichen und die Möglichkeit der Unsterblichkeit in greifbare Nähe rückt. Prä-Astronautiker glauben, dass wir damit nur dem Weg folgen, den Außerirdische für uns vorgesehen haben.

The Genius Factor

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?

Neue Quellen

Seit Erich von Däniken 1968 „Erinnerungen an die Zukunft“ veröffentlichte, stellen sich Prä-Astronautiker die Frage, ob die Menschheit wirklich in der Vergangenheit von Außerirdischen besucht wurde. In den letzten Jahren tauchten immer mehr Indizien dafür auf, dass es in der Vergangenheit Einflüsse von Außerirdischen auf der Erde gab. Satellitenbilder haben in Kasachstan Geoglyphen entdeckt, die an die Nazca-Linien erinnern, und mit einem Radar fand man in Machu Picchu uralte Technologie. Es könnte also sein, dass es bald Beweise für das Konzept der Prä-Astronautik geben wird

Secrets of the Mummies

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?

Alien Resurrections

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?

Das Weltenei

Ein „Weltenei“, in dem das Universum oder ein ursprüngliches Wesen aus einem Ei hervorgeht, findet man in den Weltentstehungslegenden verschiedener Kulturen. Hinweise auf den Ursprung des „Welteneis“ könnten in einem anderen Symbol liegen, den miteinander verwundenen Schlangen, von denen manche glauben, dass sie antikes Wissen über die Doppelhelix der DNA-Stränge repräsentieren. Es fragt sich, ob unsere Vorfahren tatsächlich Einblick in die biologische Kodierung des Menschen hatten und das „Weltenei“ unsere eigene Kreation und genetische Manipulation repräsentiert.

Die mündlich überlieferten Geschichten reichen über 60.000 Jahre zurück in ein Zeitalter, das sie „Traumzeit“ nennen. Präastronautiker sind der Ansicht, dass die Geschichten über den Besuch von Göttern in feuerspeienden Flugobjekten die Anwesenheit Außerirdischer belegen.

The Great Flood

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.

Aliens and the Civil War

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?

Hier wurden Schießpulver, Papier, der Kompass und zahllose andere Dinge erfunden. Historisch gesehen hat China schon lange eine Politik der Abschottung betrieben, die Menschen und Informationen davon abhalten, ins Land zu kommen oder es zu verlassen. Obwohl China schon lange isolationistisch ist, gibt es angeblich neue Beweise dafür, dass Aliens in grauer Vorzeit unter uns weilten und das vielleicht bis heute tun.

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?

The Vanishings

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?

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?

Geheimakte Russland

Russland ist die Heimat des „Kosmismus“. Danach ist die menschliche Zivilisation aus dem Kosmos entstanden und dazu bestimmt, ins All zurückzukehren. Einige glauben, der Aufstieg des Kommunismus habe zu einer Mauer des Schweigens über frühere und heutige außerirdische Kontakte geführt. Prä-Astronautiker deuten die antike Siedlung bei Arkaim als Beweis dafür, dass Besuche aus dem Jenseits der Gründung der russischen Nation vorausgegangen seien. UFO- Sichtungen sowjetischer Piloten und Kosmonauten lassen vermuten, dass außerirdische Besucher auch heute versuchen Kontakt aufzunehmen.

Das geheime Memo

Das US-Militär hat lange bestritten, dass der berüchtigte Absturz in Roswell 1947 etwas anderes als ein Wetterballon war. FBI-Akten, die 2011 veröffentlicht wurden, enthalten ein Memo an J. Edgar Hoover, in dem von drei „Fliegenden Untertassen“ die Rede ist. Prä-Astronautiker glauben, dass das nur die Spitze des Eisbergs ist und sich viele außerirdische Fahrzeuge im Besitz der US-Regierung befinden. Mehr als ein Dutzend UFO-Abstürze wurden überall auf der Welt zur gleichen Zeit wie Roswell gemeldet, und man glaubt, dass die Wrackteile dieser Abstürze eingesammelt und versteckt wurden.

Prä-astronautische Anfänge

Seit Anbeginn der Menschheit gibt es immer wieder Schilderungen von extraterrestrischem Leben. Wissenschaftler und Experten auf diesem Gebiet untersuchen derartige Berichte auf ihren Wahrheitsgehalt und mögliche Implikationen auf die Menschheitsgeschichte.

Die Entführten

Zahlreiche Menschen haben angegeben, von Aliens entführt worden zu sein. Solche Berichte finden sich schon in Sagen, die Tausende von Jahre alt sind. Darin kehren die Entführten oft mit neuem Wissen oder Anweisungen für die Menschheit auf die Erde zurück. In der modernen Zeit hat man bei der Untersuchung angeblicher Entführungen durch Aliens außerirdische Objekte gefunden, die unter der Haut implantiert waren. Es gab seltsame Muster genetischer Mutationen, und Entführte beherrschten plötzlich Alien-Sprachen. Prä-Astronautiker glauben, dass dies Teil eines Master-Plans für die Menschheit ist.

Die Macht Shivas

Von den Millionen Hindu-Göttern ist keiner wichtiger als Shiva, der große Zerstörer. Prä-Astronautiker glauben, dass dieses mächtige Wesen eigentlich der Anführer einer außerirdischen Gruppe war, die mit fortschrittlicher Technologie auf die Erde kam. Beweise dafür finden sie nicht nur in uralten vedischen Texten, sondern auch in Stein gemeißelt, überall in der Hindu-Welt. So zum Beispiel im Kailasa-Tempel, der Shiva geweiht ist und vollständig aus einem Fels gemeißelt wurde. Prä-Astronautiker glauben, dass Shiva mehr als eine mythologische Figur ist und heute noch auf der Erde weilt.

Enormous manmade caves... Unexplainable structures... And underwater discoveries that challenge everything we know about the past...Is it possible that an advanced civilization inhabited Earth thousands of years ago? And if so, were they human, or something out of this world? Modern archaeologists are continuously unearthing artifacts and sites that defy the conventional timeline of human history. Throughout the world we find megalithic stone monuments that are attributed to mysterious ancestors, strange humanoid figures that date to pre-historic times, and evidence of ancient underground shelters hewn out of solid rock. Could it be that a sophisticated culture existed on here Earth--thousands and even tens of thousands of years earlier than we believe? Could the stories of a time when gods and otherworldly beings inhabited the planet be more than just mythology?

NASA's Secret Agenda

When German aerospace engineer Wernher von Braun joined the U.S. military and space programs after World War II, he quickly became one of the foremost scientists credited with developing the ballistic missile, the first American satellite and the enormous Saturn V rocket that enabled man to reach the moon. Von Braun's bold predictions that we would explore Mars and build a space station have become reality. But how is it that von Braun--whose contemporaries included such scientific geniuses as Nikola Tesla, Robert Oppenheimer, and Albert Einstein--was so far ahead of everyone when it came to rocketry? Did he have secret information collected by the Nazi party during WWII--or access to advanced technology recovered from the alleged UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947? Or is it possible that the greatest rocket scientist the world has ever known found his inspiration not on our world, but another?

Aliens and Robots

Incredible strength... Superior intelligence... And even the ability to reproduce. In the 21st century, robots are being programmed to do everything from performing surgery on humans--to exploring other planets. And humanoid robots are rapidly reaching a level of sophistication that was thought to exist only in science fiction. But what are the implications of creating robots that are increasingly intelligent and independent? Is the obsession with creating counterfeit humans really pointing the way to mankind's future... or to its past? Greek stories dating to 2000 B.C. tell of the god Hephaestus creating robots to build weapons, as well as the bronze giant Talos. In Egypt, the Pyramid Texts say that the god Osiris was dismembered, then reassembled and brought back to life just like a machine. If sophisticated robots really did exist in the ancient world--what function did they serve? Who built them? And what happened to them?

Dark Forces

Good and Evil. Light and Dark. God and Satan. In nearly every culture there are stories of opposing forces at work here on Earth--forces of a supernatural or otherworldly nature. Could these forces really exist? And if so, what is the true nature of the dark forces? Throughout history, there have been individuals accused of being in league with agents of darkness. The infamous mad monk Rasputin believed he served as a conduit for an otherworldly realm, the Nazi SS were said to have tapped into dark powers through ancient symbols, and famed occultist Aleister Crowley claimed to have summoned a non-human entity through the use of dark magic. Is it possible the entities these men claimed to be in touch with were, in fact, extraterrestrials? And might humans serve as the pawns in a cosmic battle between the forces of light and dark?

The Alien Evolution

Ancient Astronaut theorists have suggested that many of the divine beings depicted in cultures throughout the world are not really divine--or mythological--but instead reflect extraterrestrial visitations that our ancestors did not understand. If true, what can account for all the different types of beings that are depicted, from anthropomorphic birds and reptiles, to gods with blue skin to multi-limbed humanoids? Might there have been numerous alien species inhabiting Earth? Could the accounts given by modern day alien abductees be evidence that these otherworldly entities continue to visit Earth to this day? And is it possible that they all have a common ancestor? In 1928, archaeologist Julio Tello discovered the Paracas skulls of Peru--elongated heads with cranial volumes at least 25% larger than the largest known human skulls. Some believe that these remains are of extraterrestrial origin.

The Other Earth

Billions of dollars have been spent in our quest to find an "other Earth." Since the launch of the Kepler Telescope in 2009, scientists have identified thousands of planets capable of supporting life. Is it possible that this discovery finally answers the age-old question: "Are we alone in the universe?" Could it be that just as we seek out other habitable planets, advanced extraterrestrials from distant galaxies did the same with Earth in the remote past? Throughout world mythologies, there are tales of beings from the stars coming down to Earth. The Dogon tribe in Africa believes their gods came from the Sirius star system. The Maya associated their gods with the Pleiades star cluster. And according to the Hopi tradition, life itself was seeded by celestial beings. Ancient Astronaut theorists propose that not only has our planet been visited by extraterrestrials, but that they are responsible for our very existence.

Creatures of the Deep

In August of 2014, Russian cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station discovered something incredibly unexpected covering parts of the windows--living sea plankton. If sea life can thrive in space, might the reverse be true as well? Might there be alien life forms that inhabit our seas? Throughout history, there have been tales of strange creatures hiding in Earth's waters. While many discount stories of sea monsters as purely mythological, it is estimated that Earth's oceans are home to between 700,000 to one million species--and shockingly, two-thirds of those species still remain unknown. Considering the recent discovery that some sea life can survive in outer space, is it possible that tales of giant creatures like the Kraken and The Loch Ness Monster are evidence of extraterrestrial entities taking refuge beneath the seas?

Circles from the Sky

Over 10,000 crop circles have been reported worldwide, appearing in 50 different countries, and nearly every continent on Earth. These strange designs pressed into crop fields range from simple circles to elaborate pictograms thousand of feet long. The phenomenon has been associated with scientific anomalies, strange lights, and even UFO activity. But critics say that they are all part of an elaborate hoax. But are they? Crop circles have been making modern headlines since the 1960's, but their history can be traced back hundreds--if not thousands of years. The designs themselves often contain encrypted messages and complex mathematical, geometric, and astronomical equations that perplex our top mathematicians and scientists. Ancient Astronaut Theorist, Giorgio Tsoukalos travels to England to meet with researchers and scientists to investigate the phenomenon both on the ground and in the lab to find out what we haven't been told.

The Alien Wars

On March 19th, 2002, Gary McKinnon was arrested for hacking into 97 Pentagon and NASA computers over a 13-month period, in what authorities call the "biggest military computer hack of all time." McKinnon claimed that he found evidence of a secret American space fleet, by way of a list of dozens of "non-terrestrial officers" and their assigned spacecraft, replete with USSS (United States Space Ship) monikers. Might the United States military really have a secret space program? And if so, are we preparing for a space-based war with other nations... or other species? Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest that there are numerous factions of alien races with competing agendas visiting Earth, and that there is evidence they have been in conflict with each other for thousands of years. According to these theorists, there is evidence that these wars actually took place here on Earth in the distant past--not between gods, but between extraterrestrial visitors.

The Forbidden Zones

Due to warfare, instability, and inaccessibility--there are specific regions of the world that are off-limits to exploration. These forbidden sites are often ground zero for chaos and the destruction of ancient artifacts and irreplaceable records detailing mankind's origins and history. In Iraq and Syria, thousands of ancient artifacts and relics have been deliberately destroyed. Museums and excavation sites across Egypt have been looted multiple times. In the highlands of Tibet and the jungles of Central America, sacred texts have been systematically destroyed. Could this all be by design? Ancient Astronaut theorists propose that there may be profound historical objects and information buried at these sites--ancient knowledge, technology, or perhaps the truth about our alien past. Is there a plot to conceal information? And could extraterrestrials be intervening in the cover up?

Pyramids of Antarctica

Antarctica is Earth's most remote and least explored continent. It is buried under as much as three miles of ice in some places, but recent satellite imagery has revealed what appear to be the tops of man-made pyramids scattered throughout the ice-covered landscape. But how is that possible? Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest that an ice-free Antarctica may have been colonized by extraterrestrials in the remote past, until a global catastrophe plunged it into the ice age. Is there a greater history on the continent than what mainstream scholars suggest? Scientists have reported strange magnetic anomalies radiating from beneath the ice, the Nazis allegedly made secret expeditions to the continent in search of a lost civilization, and government whistleblowers have come forward with claims of strange sightings. Perhaps hidden beneath the ice of this frozen continent lies the truth about our extraterrestrial origins.

Destination Mars

Within 20 years, we are expecting to send the first colonizers to the Red Planet. Astronauts will brave the six-month journey to become the first extraterrestrials visitors to Mars--where they are expected to live and die there, never to return to Earth. But why have we always had a strange fascination with this particular planet? The latest NASA research has revealed that not only is there evidence of liquid water on the planet, but that life on Earth was most likely seeded on Mars. Ancient Astronaut theorists even suggest that the development of life on Earth may have similarities to how scientists are currently planning to keep humans alive on the red planet. Could extraterrestrials from Mars have colonized Earth in our remote past? Could our voyage to Mars not only unlock the mysteries of our ancient, extraterrestrial origins--but also be the key to the long-term survival of the human species?

The Next Humans

The Next Humans

In the 21st century, technology is heading in a radical new direction--the merging of man and machine. Smart drugs, nanorobots, and machine-printed organs are just a few of the cutting-edge innovations catalyzing the evolution of humankind into an entirely new species. Transhumanists envision a future in which we become cyborgs, achieving far superior intelligence, the ability to survive beyond Earth's atmosphere without a spacesuit, and the possibility of immortality. But might similarly superhuman beings have walked the Earth once before? Beings that our ancestors regarded as gods? Ancient Astronaut theorists say yes, and suggest that we are simply following the course they set us on from the very beginning of mankind--to transcend our flesh and become like our extraterrestrial creators.

The New Evidence

The New Evidence

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? This is the question Ancient Astronaut theorists have posed since Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods was first published in 1968; examining scientific, archaeological, astronomical, and historical evidence to find the answer. In recent years, more new evidence has been revealed than ever before that suggests there was extraterrestrial intervention on Earth in the distant past. Satellite images have exposed geoglyphs resembling Nazca lines in Kazakhstan. Ground penetrating radar has detected remnants of ancient technology in Machu Picchu. And thermal scanning has uncovered hidden chambers behind King Tut's tomb that may hold the remains of extraterrestrial beings. Could we be at the tipping point where the overwhelming evidence outweighs any last shred of doubt?

The Visionaries

Scientists theorize that when mankind encounters extraterrestrials, we'll need to speak to them through the universal language of mathematics and binary code. But is it possible that extraterrestrials have already been communicating with our greatest mathematicians and engineers? Might they have somehow aided them in bringing about the space age and computers? Ancient Astronaut theorists say yes. As evidence, they point to the true father of the space program, Nikolai Fyodorov, a "Cosmist" who believed that human civilization had its origins in outer space and that it was our destiny to return to the cosmos. Wernher von Braun was greatly influenced by Fyodorov and he was motivated by a similar, secret belief when he ran the mission that put the first man on the moon. Is it possible that humanity's greatest visionaries have been carrying out an extraterrestrial master plan?

6

Decoding the Cosmic Egg

Theorists suggest that the iconic religious symbol of the cosmic egg demonstrates that human ancestors possessed a knowledge of the DNA double-helix spiral and human biological coding.

7

The Wisdom Keepers

The Aborigines of Australia are the oldest, continuously surviving society on Earth. The stories preserved in their oral tradition are said to date back over 60,000 years, to an era they call the "Dreamtime" and contain fascinating descriptions about how life began and our planet was seeded by extraterrestrials. Linguistic experts have just discovered that many of these indigenous legends can be scientifically verified by examining the geological record. Ancient Astronaut theorists propose that if the Aboriginal's oral traditions are indeed this accurate, then perhaps the tales they tell about sky gods visiting Earth in large, fire-spewing crafts are true as well. Could the ultimate evidence about our extraterrestrial past be found within the sacred stories, sites, and rituals of Australia's Wisdom Keepers?

8

The Mysterious Nine

In 2013, former Canadian Minister of Defense, Paul Hellyer, made a shocking claim--that there is a federation of extraterrestrial beings monitoring and guiding humanity. But why would such an esteemed politician make such a controversial announcement? Ancient Astronaut theorists believe evidence can be found throughout history to prove his claims are true. Stories of emperors, kings and pharaohs consulting a pantheon of nine gods can be found in virtually every culture across the globe. Even channeling sessions conducted by CIA scientists in the 1950s connected with an otherworldly group of entities called "The Nine" -- extraterrestrials here to influence the events on Earth. Could there be an intergalactic council of nine secretly working behind the scenes, dictating the course of humanity?

9

The Hidden Empire

Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest that evidence of extraterrestrial visitation exists in every corner of the Earth, but some say the most compelling can be found in one of the world’s least accessible places–China. China is the cradle to one of mankind’s earliest and most influential civilizations. The advents of gunpowder, paper, the compass, and countless other major innovations form the technological base on which our modern societies function. But historically, China has also had a policy of isolationism. From the Great Wall erected thousands of years ago to the “Great Firewall” of today, China has long prevented both people and information from entering or exiting its domain. While China has long been a secretive and isolationist country, new evidence suggest that aliens walked among us in the ancient past, and may have been with us all the way up to today… hiding among us.

10

The Prototypes

Recent archaeological discoveries reveal a very different picture of what life on Earth looked like in the remote past. It was a real-life version of "Lord of the Rings," where humans shared the planet with various different types of intelligent human-like species, such as Neanderthals, Denisovans, and even hobbits. But how is it that these various hominid species developed separately in isolated pockets of the globe? And why does no fossil evidence exist suggesting a slow gradual delineation from a common species? Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest these different intelligent species seem to have come straight out of the incubator, and that Earth itself may have served as an extraterrestrial laboratory. A laboratory where different human prototypes once existed--but only one species was chosen to survive. Is mankind the result of an extraterrestrial experiment?

11

Space Station Moon

Is there a space station on the moon? If so who put it there? Is it still there?

12

Russia's Secret Files

The old Russia and some citizens have loosened their grip on secrecy. Revealing some UFO activity. Disclosed is some information about ancient artifacts that were found, the artifacts are too advanced by even todays standards.

13

Beyond Roswell

The U.S. military has long denied that the infamous 1947 Roswell crash was anything other than a weather balloon, but FBI files released in 2011 include a memo to J. Edgar Hoover regarding the recovery of not one, but three "flying saucers." Could the U.S. government really have extraterrestrial crafts in their possession? Ancient Astronaut theorists say yes, and claim that Roswell is just the tip of the iceberg. Over a dozen other UFO crashes were reported all across the world around the same time as Roswell, and it is rumored that the wreckage from these incidents was retrieved and hidden away at secret military bases like Area 51 in Nevada, Kapustin Yar in Russia, Pine Gap in Australia, Rudloe Manor in England, and even in the remote hills of China. But if true, what happened to these alien spaceships?

Alien Hunters

Starting in 1947, a series of unexplained events and sightings prompts U.S. government officials to become alien hunters; theorists offer evidence that similar endeavors were made thousands of years ago.

2

Forged by the Gods

Theorists speculate about metal artifacts that could provide physical evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth in the distant past; in Jacksonville, Fla. a strange metallic sphere falls from the sky; an ancient aluminum wedge baffles historians.

3

Was geschah in Rudloe Manor?

In the southwest corner of the Wiltshire, England countryside lies the mysterious structure known as Rudloe Manor. On the surface, it appears to be nothing more than a quaint English manor house, but researchers have argued for years that it has been the epicenter of British research into UFOs since World War II. British Ministry of Defence (MOD) insiders claim that an astounding 2.2 million square feet of vast caverns divided into many smaller chambers lie buried underneath Rudloe Manor. Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and Nick Pope explore the possibility that important files related to the history of the UFO phenomenon are being kept under lock and key here. Might recovered extraterrestrial craft be stored and analyzed there as well? Could the evidence of extraterrestrial contact from the Berwyn Mountains incident in 1974 and the Rendlesham forest encounter in 1980 be hidden in this highly protected facility?

4

Außerirdische Architekten

Many of the architectural marvels of the ancient world bear striking similarities to one another, even though they were built by civilizations that were separated by thousands of miles and are believed to have had no contact with one another. Separated by more than 7500 miles, the Giza pyramid complex in Giza, Egypt and the Avenue of the Dead in Teotihuacan, Mexico contain pyramids that are aligned with the constellation of Orion's belt. An ancient pyramid temple in Cambodia known as Baksei Chamkrong is an almost identical match for the Temple of the Jaguar in Guatemala. Many structures built using stone slabs that weighed over a hundred tons. But how did primitive people achieve such extraordinary feats? And why do we see such similarities? Could these sites have all been designed by alien architects?

5

Der Fluch der Pharaonen

According to legend, a curse was placed on the tomb of King Tutankhamun; researchers theorize that the curse came about as the result of alien technology with the purpose of protecting the truth about an otherworldly event as well as an alien device.

6

Wissenschaften im Widerspruch

Archaeologists and anthropologists make discoveries that receive no notice because they don't fit into the accepted scientific paradigm, such as an ancient hammer found in Texas or elongated skulls found on nearly every continent.

7

Rätsel um Teotihuacán

Researchers suggest that the ancient site of Teotihuacan in central Mexico was once home to a highly advanced, perhaps extraterrestrial, civilization; excavations at Teotihuacan have unearthed discoveries out of place in the ancient world.

8

Verbindende Frequenzen

The use of mantras and chanting to connect with a higher plane has existed in cultures all over the world dating back thousands of years, but why would people who had no contact with each other all subscribe to this practice? Could there be certain frequencies that connect us with greater--perhaps extraterrestrial--forces? Researchers have found that dozens of megalithic sites stretching across the globe--like the prehistoric Newgrange monument in Ireland, the chiseled labyrinths underneath the island of Malta, and the giant temple complex of Angkor Wat in Cambodia--were all designed to emanate the exact same frequency. The planets in our solar system each give off a distinct sound, and certain places on Earth, like Taos, New Mexico, have been found to produce a hum from an unknown source. Might the best evidence of alien intervention on Earth be found not with our eyes... but with our ears?

9

The Majestic Twelve

A roll of film surfaces containing pictures of a memo informing president-elect Dwight Eisenhower about the existence of a top-secret group of scientists, government officials and military personnel who investigate reports of UFOs.

10

The Akashic Record

Researchers ask if Cloud computing represents the rediscovery of an ancient repository of knowledge known as the Akashic Record; neuroscientist Dr. Dario Nardi measures the brainwaves of Dr. Deepak Chopra as he enters a state of deep meditation.

11

Voices of the Gods

India's Sanskrit texts are filled with incredible stories about advanced technology in the ancient world. Highly complex building techniques, brain surgery, flying crafts, and even nuclear physics are described with uncanny accuracy. Hindu scholars attribute this knowledge to a time when "gods" walked among men. Might this period of time actually be referring to an age when extraterrestrials inhabited the planet? Giorgio A. Tsoukalos travels to India to further explore the Sanskrit texts, as well as the structures and technology that have stood the test of time. From a temple that inexplicably survived a major earthquake to evidence of ancient brain surgery and instructions for advanced flying machines, Giorgio studies the sacred knowledge that is said to have come directly from the voices of the gods.

12

The Animal Agenda

Extraterrestrials are almost always envisioned as humanoid, but is this an egocentric concept? Could it be that intelligent alien life looks much different from us, and that some extraterrestrials more closely resemble other animals? And is it possible that many of the animals that roam the Earth have otherworldly origins? By examining ancient cultures around the world, we find that nearly all revered certain animals and depicted their gods with animal traits. The Sanskrit epics of India feature gods in the form of elephants, monkeys, and snakes. The Sumerians depicted gods with bird heads and wings. And in Egypt, not only did they portray many of the gods with animal features, but they even went so far as to mummify their animals. Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest that certain animals may not have developed through Darwinian evolution, but were planted here by alien visitors.
