• In 2009, the History Channel debuted a television series to prove the existence of an extraterrestrial presence on the Earth. Ten years later, Ancient Aliens is still one of the most watched programs on the History Channel. In fact, the show is so popular that it spawned an Alien Con (a series of conferences in various cities that cater to space exploration themed tv shows) which is widely attended and has attracted celebrities as well as former government officials.
• The genesis of the program was Erich von Däniken’s book, Chariots of the Gods? which makes a case for the ancient astronaut theory by asserting that primitive man made contact with extraterrestrials. These close encounters of the third kind resulted in accelerated human development due to genetic engineering as well as technological advancement.
• The series travels the globe and routinely visits exotic locales to examine proof of extraterrestrial visitation. This year’s season will cover a wide variety of topics ranging from government funding of UFO research to an in-depth look at Egypt’s Great Pyramid chambers. Joining consulting producer Giorgio A. Tsoukalos are David Hatcher Childress, William Henry and Linda Moulton Howe.
