Deeper Space: Episode 1
Episode 1: Ancient Space Program
Ancient civilizations inspire wonder, curiosity and questions about the origins of humanity. Many ancient sites, often found on ley lines, have mysterious and advanced infrastructure, architecture and technology that history and archaeology cannot explain.
Deep Space: A Call to Question History
Explore the mysteries of ancient civilizations and ponder the questions: Can we solve some of today’s most complex problems with the wisdom and technology of ancient civilizations? Is NASA on a covert quest to uncover ancient technologies? What can we learn from the ruins of ancient civilizations that you won’t find in government-sanctioned textbooks? What caused the sudden decline of so many ancient cities? Did the technology of ancient civilizations originate from extraterrestrials?
“I knew that a historian (or a journalist, or anyone telling a story) was forced to choose, out of an infinite number of facts, what to present, what to omit. And that decision inevitably would reflect, whether consciously or not, the interests of the historian.” -Howard Zinn

Ancient Space Program
Since the 1960’s, NASA-born space programs have taken a prominent place in the media and collected accolades for their accomplishments of furthering humanity into the space age. But what if this was all a major front to obscure NASA’s interest in ancient space programs?
WHAT ARE LEY LINES?
Ley lines, or Dragon Lines, are lines of geological and cultural significance that connect Sacred Sites geographically across the Earth. They are comprised of nodal points on the Earth’s energy grid. While ley lines may have been created due to overland trekking by line-of-sight navigation, they are often aligned with vortices, magnetic fields or underground streams. Is there a more intelligent design behind the placement of sacred sites on Earth?
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” -Nikola Tesla
Chaco Canyon, Teotihuacán and Pumapunku are just a few of the sacred sites that harbor mysterious beginnings and endings – and inspire endless questions, still unanswered. These sites, among many others, are also the focus of archaeoastronomical research on the astronomical knowledge of prehistoric cultures.
Chaco Canyon: The Key to Space Travel?
Chaco Canyon inspires and intrigues archaeologists and stargazers; it has also garnered the attention of NASA. Is this ancient site the potential key to space travel?
CHACO CANYON: THE ANCIENT OBSERVATORY
Chaco Canyon is a shallow, 10-mile canyon is located in a remote and desolate northwest corner of New Mexico that housed an ancient and advanced civilization. Chaco Canyon may have been a distribution center for a large trading network: colorful parrot feathers, copper bells and seashells from up to 3,000 miles (4,800 km) away have been found in the ruins. Yet, the sudden decline of the people of Chaco Canyon and the construction of this ancient observatory remain unexplained.
- Location: Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, United States
- Peak Population: 2,000
- Peak Activity: 900-1150 AD/CE
- Known For: Chacoans quarried sandstone blocks and hauled timber across great distances, assembling fifteen major complexes that remained the largest buildings in North America until the 19th century. They are known for their trade activity, religious ceremonies and knowledge of astronomy
- Decline Began: 1130 AD/CE
- Archaeological Reason for Decline: Drought and lack of resources may have lead to a mass migration into the valleys and drainages of major rivers nearby
Original Inhabitants were largely farmers until approximately 800 AD/CE, when they began constructing massive stone buildings Based On Astronomy. Generations of The Ancient Ones, also known as the Anasazi, dedicated themselves to building these pueblos: construction required transportation of sandstone from nearby cliffs and timber hauled from over 50 miles (80 km) away. The pueblos were aligned with the movements of the sun and the 18 ½ year lunar cycle, a feat not known to have been accomplished by other ancient civilizations.
What happened in 800 AD/CE that shifted this agrarian society to a mathematically advanced society that used complex calculations to create infrastructure based on astronomy?
Chaco Canyon is found on the Anasazi ley line, which precisely connects the Aztec Ruins and Casas Grandes along Longitude 107° 57′. The engineering of the site is still unexplained and large amounts of stone were moved miraculously.
Did Chacoans learn how to harness the energy of ley lines, vortices and magnetic fields? Could ley lines or magnetic fields be the key to a sustainable energy source?
MYSTERY OF DECLINE
Chacoans disappeared without a trace. To this day, researchers have not found burial sites, despite habitation of the area for an estimated 300 years. Recent Archaeological Research questions the theory that depleted resources caused their decline. A Proceedings For The National Academy Of Sciences Report concludes that, “there is no substantive evidence for deforestation at Chaco and no obvious indications that the depopulation of the canyon in the 13th century was caused by any specific cultural practices or natural events.”
What happened to the people of Chaco Canyon in 1130 AD/CE to cause their sudden disappearance?
Teotihuacán: City of the Gods or Ancient Spaceport?
Teotihuacán was one of the most advanced cities in the world until its residents vanished without a trace. Are these ancient ruins remnants of a spaceport?
TEOTIHUACÁN: THE CITY OF THE GODS
One of the Largest Metropolises in the ancient world, Myth Depicts Teotihuacán as the birthplace of creation. Spanning over 12 miles (20 km), this massive ancient city was one of the largest metropolises in the ancient world. With strange resemblances to modern day architecture, these massive complexes demonstrate advanced mathematics and astronomical sciences, similar to those incorporated into the design of the Egyptian Pyramids. While Teotihuacán means “City of Gods,” it may also be translated as “The Place Where Men Become Gods” in Nahuatl. The Construction Of Teotihuacán and the sudden decline in population remain a mystery.
- Location: Teotihuacán, 40 km northeast of Mexico City, Mexico
- Peak Population: 250,000
- Peak Activity: 375-550 AD/CE (100 BC to 600 AD/CE)
- Known For: Teotihuacán was one of the largest cities in the ancient world and advanced design suggests complex mathematics and astronomical sciences, such as the infamous Pyramids of the Sun and Moon. They were also known for art, astronomy, architecture, religion and obsidian weaponry
- Decline Began: 550 AD/CE
- Archaeological Reason for Decline: Drought related to climate change may have lead to a civil unrest and mass migration; invasion may have also been a cause of decline because it appears that the city was sacked and systematically burned
The third largest pyramid in the world, the Pyramid Of The Sun, and its underground tunnels display advanced astronomical knowledge. While the Pyramid of the Sun is oriented to a nearby mountain, Cerro Gordo, with the “purpose of employing a prominent peak on the local horizon as a natural marker of the Sun’s position on the so-called quarter days of the year,” according to a report published in Latin American Antiquity. Other theories link the mapping of temples and buildings in Teotihuacán with the Planets In Our Solar System.
How were the massive structures of Teotihuacán built? How was its celestial alignment determined?
Mass amounts of Mica, a mineral found over 1,800 miles (3,000 km) away, and Mercury were found throughout the city. Mica is a good electric insulator and stable at high temperatures: NASA uses it to build Rockets. Mercury is found in electrical components and may be used to simulate antigravitational forces. The site strangely resembles a circuit board from a bird’s eye view and some believe it may have housed a getaway spaceship.
Could Teotihuacán wisdom provide answers to modern questions regarding energy sustainability or propulsion technology?
MYSTERY OF DECLINE
Ruins reveal that the city was suddenly abandoned and may have been systematically burned around 550 AD/CE.
What happened to the Inhabitants of Teotihuacán? Was the city deliberately destroyed?
PUMAPUNKU: THE DOOR OF THE PUMA
Known to the Inca as the site where the world was created, the ancient megaliths of Pumapunku weigh between 100-400 tons: archeologists and scientists are baffled at the precise and sophisticated manufacturing of the stones. High in the Andes mountains, at 12,800 feet (3,900 m) this ancient site lies on a ley line. The excavation of the Tiahuanaco ruins nearby only contributed more questions about the technologies used and the people who inhabited the area. With only remnants left to investigate, the stone blocks fit together like pieces in a puzzle.
- Location: Tiwanaku, Bolivia
- Peak Population: 400,000
- Peak Activity: 700-1000 AD/CE
- Known For: The people of Pumapunku are known for pottery and art, as well as the intricate engineering style of their infrastructure
- Decline Began: 1000 AD/CE
- Archaeological Reason for Decline: Rapid environmental change may have lead to drought or flooding; the occurrence of an earthquake is another possibility. As a result, the inhabitants of Pumapunku scattered into nearby mountain ranges
Built with massive stones, believed to have been hewn at quarries over 60 miles (97 km) away and rolled to Pumapunku on logs. However, the site lies at 12,800 feet (3,900 m) above the tree line, leaving doubt behind traditional archaeological theories. The site is composed of Interlocking Blocks, weighing tons, that would be difficult to move even today. The blocks were connected using liquid metal in joint that hardened as it cooled: this technique was also used to built the Egyptian Pyramids. Solstice markers mounted on the walls of megaliths would have aligned precisely with the sunrises for the summer and winter solstices 17,000 years ago.
How was its celestial alignment determined? Could Pumapunku have been built thousands of years ago prior to the Incas? Why do engineering tactics at Pumapunku resemble those of Ancient Egypt?
The site was constructed with advanced tools and knowledge. Finely cut doorways Bear No Chisel Marks. Pumapunku is composed of granite and diorite, diorite being the second hardest stone after diamond, and difficult to cut. Some believe that its remains resemble missile silos or even launchpads and may have housed weaponry or technology.
Were the people of Pumapunku able to harness free energy to accomplish their engineering feats? Could there be answers to modern problems in the technologies and engineering of Pumapunku?
MYSTERY OF DECLINE
The decline and dispersion of the people of Pumapunku remains a mystery. In attempted recreations of the site, some researchers suggest the site was deliberately destroyed.
What happened to the people living at Pumapunku? What caused their decline and the destruction of Pumapunku?

Secret Space Programs and Breakaway Civilizations
In July 2014, on the 45th anniversary of Apollo 11’s moon landing, the government declassified information about a secret space program from the 1950s called Project Horizon. The plan outlined the building of a permanent military base on the moon. Ten to twenty men would be sent with all their supplies and nuclear weapons. The secret moon base would be used for surveillance against and protection from the Soviet Union, and the men would have constant communication with the Earth.
The released documents show that the scientists knew it wasn’t possible to implement the plan, but it was expected to be put in place as technology advanced. Project Horizon never got off the ground. But, that isn’t the end nor the beginning of the story about secret space programs from the past, present and the future.
Secret Space Programs and FDR
In the 1940s, according to recently released documents, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt commissioned a secret space program. He was concerned about how to move large numbers of people in case of nuclear war to avoid massive radiation damage. He thought there might also be a need to escape the ravages of some other global cataclysmic event. Since there was no place on Earth to which large masses of people could be moved, he considered the possibility of moving to locations in space.
At first, moving to the nearest star, Alpha Centauri, seemed like an option. However, the distance made such a plan impossible. As a next step, FDR focused on the moon, Mars or Venus as alternatives to Earth.
Beginning in 1945 at the conclusion of WWII, after President Truman took over, he brought 1,500 German scientists and engineers to the U.S. The scientists, under Hitler’s leadership in Nazi Germany, made advancements in the development of flying saucers, like the Nazi Bell, before and during the war. The German scientists worked at Fort Bliss, near El Paso, Texas, and were assigned the task of developing secret space programs under the project name of Operation Paperclip.
Truman believed the Germans had knowledge of anti-gravity propulsion engines and other spacecraft flight technology. Werner von Braun was the most well-known member of this group, who eventually became the designer of the Saturn V launch vehicle, which was used to propel American astronauts to the moon. He eventually became the director of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and spoke out frequently about the need for space exploration.
Secret space programs are believed to be financed by secret “Black Budget” programs with contributions made by people with great wealth, private contractors and some government agencies. This secret funding keeps the programs from being subject to congressional oversight. Since the early 1960s, the programs have been kept secret even from the president: A memo was found in the newly released documents that said to keep “Lancer,” President Kennedy’s secret service nickname, out of the loop.
Secret Space Programs and Breakaway Civilizations
Secret space programs may have developed Breakaway Civilizations in outer space. Well-respected UFO and space researcher Richard Dolan, defines a Breakaway Civilization as a secret group of technologically advanced people who don’t share their knowledge with the rest of the world. These are essentially the Earth’s elite who have knowledge far above the rest of the world.
These elite may know of an upcoming imminent global geological cataclysm event and are building space bases as shelters for themselves. For example, they could be planning their escape from Nibiru Planet X, which “triggers comet showers” every 27 million years. One of those comets is expected to crash into the Earth and totally destroy it sometime in the not too distant future.
Scotland native, Gary McKinnon, hacked into thousands of government secret files. He found evidence of an anti-gravity propulsion system that traveled at incredible speeds. Also, he found evidence of portal technology that, when coupled with anti-gravity propulsion, would allow space travel to other stars and planets to be accomplished in a short amount of time.
It appears that Einstein’s theory that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light has been debunked. It also appears the Black Budget keeps these secrets even from NASA, since NASA apparently does not have access to anti-gravity technology. It still propels its rockets with fossil fuel.
McKinnon claims he saw nearly 300 photos of structures and civilizations existing on the back side of the moon. He says these structures (alien bases on the moon) are erased out of any photos when they are released to the public. Unfortunately, when he hacked into the computers, he was using a dial-up connection so he couldn’t download the photos. He says he took a screenshot of one that was saved on his computer, but his computer was seized when he was arrested. When his computer was subsequently returned to him, the photo was gone.
McKinnon also reported viewing a file that included names of “non-terrestrial officers” who he says were assigned to ships that weren’t U.S. Navy ships. He concluded these were the officers assigned to space ships, not navy ships, indicating that Breakaway Civilizations already exist.
There are many outstanding questions about secret space programs. Why do these programs remain secret? Will there be an opportunity for non-elite citizens to be part of a Breakaway Civilization? A poll taken in 2015 shows that 54 percent of Americans believe extraterrestrial intelligence exists. With such a large number of people supporting alien existence, why is there still a need to maintain secrecy?
