Ancient Aliens celebrates 10 years of searching for extraterrestrials


Ancient Aliens returns to the History Channel on May 31 at 9 p.m. The series celebrates 10 years of searching for definitive proof of extraterrestrials.

Ancient Aliens is one of the most watched programs on the History Channel. In 2009, their quest for proof of extraterrestrial life began. 10 years later, the series is still going strong and ready to start a new season on May 31.

Perhaps one of the most well-known contributors to the show and a consulting producer is Giorgio A. Tsoukalos. He is an outspoken proponent of the ancient astronaut theory and student of Erich von Däniken.

Von Däniken wrote an entire book that has become an integral part of UFO culture called, 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.

While this is considered to be a pseudoscience, there are enough believers to warrant a television program. No matter what your opinion on E.T. visitations might be, Ancient Aliens is a thoroughly entertaining exercise.

According to the press release, 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 Tsoukalos are Ancient Alien theorists, David Hatcher Childress, William Henry and Linda Moulton Howe.

The series travels the globe and routinely visits exotic locales to examine proof of extraterrestrial visitation. While some delight in debunking alleged evidence of encounters, the following for Ancient Aliens hasn’t waned. In fact, it is so popular that it spawned an Alien Con which is widely attended and has attracted celebrities as well as former government officials.
