Main guest, planetary scientist Dr. Dan Durda discussed asteroid Toutatis as well as other developments in the solar system. This is its closest pass since 1353, and it won't be this close again until 2562, he said of the asteroid that will safely come within one million miles of Earth on September 29th.Should an asteroid the size of Toutatis (3 miles x 1Â½ miles) hit our planet it would have the impact of a 2 million megaton explosion (more than all the world's nukes), cause an 8.8 quake, and an unbearably loud sound that would shatter glass up to 300 miles away from the crash, he detailed. There are approximately 1100 asteroids passing by Earth, he said, and while we are not in danger of 60% of them, the paths of 40% of them have yet to be identified.Durda also commented on private ventures which he believes are key to opening up space exploration and travel. He also offered analysis of the finding of methane on Mars, saying that it could indicate some type of life on the p ... More »Host: George Noory
Physicist James McCanney returned to the program to discuss meteors, comets and viruses from space. He noted that around 1100 AD the Chinese began relating flu epidemics with inferior conjunctions of Venus (when the planet passes between the Earth and the Sun). Viruses are not alive in the way that bacteria are, and can replicate simply from their complex chemical structure, he explained, suggesting that some viruses might travel from comets or celestial bodies to Earth.He expressed grave concern over NASA's sample return mission from the comet WILD II, which he believes could contain virus laden material. They should study the materials from an orbital lab rather than bringing it back to Earth, he recommended. McCanney also discussed the passage of the comet Hale-Bopp in the last decade. If its tail (which contains a lot of water) had been closer to our planet, it would have caused massive flooding and a blocking of sunlight, he commented. He also touched on the work of Velikovsky ... More »Host: George Noory
Investigative reporter and author, Jordan Maxwell, interwove a variety of topics that included ufology, secret societies, ancient symbology, and occult religion. He suggested that many UFO witnesses are "marginalized" because the US government may have made a deal with ETs, in which they would put down reports and help the aliens stay incognito. ...

MIT and Princeton educated physicist, Dr. Claude Swanson (website), shared his thesis that cracks are appearing in the current scientific paradigm, and a revolution is underway that incorporates new physics and paranormal research. Getting into the specifics of such research, Swanson said that he had investigated the "orb" phenomena seen in photographs, and mentioned that it is sometimes possible to see the floating globes with the naked eye with the use of flash or strobes. ...

Tuesday's main guest, author Robert Zimmerman (website)delved into the history and future of space exploration. Dissecting the American-Russian rivalry in the 1960s, he commented that the Soviets initially got the upper hand in the space race because the "whole energy of their society was behind it." Later, after the US triumphed with the 1969 moon landing, Zimmerman said the "American public lost its will," after getting a look at the desolate and lifeless qualities inherent on the moon. Explorations of the moon were cut short and astronauts "saw less territory than a NYC cab driver sees in an afternoon of work," he jested. More excited about the possibilities for life on Europa than Mars, Zimmerman noted that some of the ridges circling Jupiter's moon have curious red extrusions. Saturn is also a "weird place," he said, pointing out that its rings "almost have the property of water." Closer to home, Zimmerman compared the structure of International Space Station to the ...

Researcher Richard Sauder shared his findings about underground and underwater bases that are located around the world. Explaining his intense interest in the topic, Sauder said that after penning a short article for UFO Magazine in 1992, he woke up one night to hear a disembodied voice inside his head that began by saying "underground bases are real." He suspects this communication was sent to him by a "pulsed microwave transmitter" that is capable of beaming messages directly into the auditory cortex, according to the patent of this device. ...

"We're all architects of our future because of decisions we've made along the way," said Gerald Celente (trendsresearch), the main guest on Tuesday's show. The founder of the Trends Research Institute, Celente described himself as a "political atheist" who sees the possibility of either a renaissance or a decline in America's future. On the dire side, he believes the U.S. economy would be hugely impacted by another terrorist attack and that the nation still hasn't recovered economically from 9-11. Missing weapons of mass destruction from the former Soviet Union, which may have been sold on the black market, could be used in such an attack. "I don't call it terrorism, I call it warfare," Celente stated. On the plus side, he said "I think we're going to go to a global age where people redefine their purpose," and the United States with its great diversity and freedom could be the epicenter of such change.Other forecasts he cited were the continued growth of the health field, ...

Spiritual clairvoyant Dr. Doreen Virtue appeared on Wednesday's program discussing the Crystal Children, a type of child born since 1995 that has unusual attributes such as very large eyes, telepathy, and fearlessness. Virtue had previously studied the Indigo phenomenon (children born starting around 1975) who also showed remarkable behaviors. Calling them "warrior spirits," she said Indigos could be reincarnated Pleiadeans and Atlanteans who have psychic powers but often feel they are misunderstood. Some of the Indigos have more energy than they know what to do with, leading to an ADD diagnosis, Virtue said. She likes to think of ADD as "Attention Dialed into a Different Dimension" rather than Attention Deficit Disorder. ... More »Host: George Noory
