Ancient Aliens



Presented in the 1968 bestselling book Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Daniken, the theory of "ancient aliens" rocked people's beliefs in mankind's progress. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru, and Indian texts that describe the "flying machines of the gods" were just a few of the odd archaeological artefacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well known to our ancestors.

Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, Ancient Aliens launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on the latest discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings on man's evolution and newly decoded artefacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored. (Source: The History Channel)


Episode Info

Next: 8x03 -- Aliens and Robots (Aug/07/2015)


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?


Prev: 8x02 -- NASA's Secret Agenda (Jul/31/2015)


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?

This Show Has No Credibility!Rating: 1 likes, 2 dislikes

after season 4, i found this show was grasping at straws! a lot of the stories really have nothing to do with "aliens", tho its about aliens when its on this show! it now goes after "folklore" and turn the story into an alien thing! really??? i wish they would just go back to what the show was originally about, and thats aliens or beings not of this world! mind you, i find Ancient Aliens is only for "entertainment purposes" only! im a person that does not believe that aliens come from outer space! nope, not for a second! im not saying that there isnt life on other planets, im saying i dont believe that we are visited from "aliens" from outer space, for a few reasons! 1. in recent years scientist have developed theories based on quantum physics and they call it string theory! now im not gonna sit here and pretend i know about quantum physics and the idea of the string theory, but it seems a lot more likely possible that there is many universes (dimensions) or a multi-verse! with just the mere thought that if scientists can split atoms, could there not be a possiblity of them being able to open up doorways to other unverses? and 2. there is no whatsoever evidence that we been visited by beings of other planets! NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE!!! i believe also theres a god! so if god created us in his image, why would he create another being from another planet in that kind of form!??? so to say weve been visited by beings from other planets doesnt sit with me, and not too mention Ancient Aliens seems the show now has to grasp at straws to keep the show going is now the case!! they really havent put a gud season together for quite sometime now! like i mentioned earlier in my comment is that i wish the show would just stay close to their roots and keep it about beings not of this world! they just need to stay awaw from a lot of the folklore unless it has to do with "aliens" not make it about aliens like they have been doing with all stories of the paranormal even! also i do look at this show for only entertainment purposes only! thanks to the people from Ancient Aliens Debunked that put me on the right path in now knowing that the show is nothing but a Fictional tv show!
