Episode Summary


Hundreds of gigantic lines, forming the shapes of animals, geometric patterns and even an alien-like being, extend for miles throughout the remote Peruvian desert. Scholars are divided as to who built them and why. Some Ancient Astronaut theorists argue that ancient peoples created these gigantic figures, which can only be viewed from the air, as a tribute to the "gods" who visited them. Others point out that the area contains one of Earth's largest deposits of nitrates, a key ingredient in rocket fuel and weaponry, raising the question : could Nazca have been an ancient mining operation for advanced beings?
