Chariots of The Gods
If you were alive in the s and had any level of interest in the pervasive culture of UFOs , then you totally owned a dog-eared paperback copy of Erich von Daniken's ancient astronaut expose, Chariots of the Gods? First published in , the pioneering book ignited a worldwide craze for flying saucers, crop circles, extraterrestrial abductions, and ufology that slingshotted into the Swingin' '70s. No self-respecting stargazer or sci-fi conventioneer was without this bible of the bizarre, which postulated that our planet had been a stopover point thousands of years ago for interstellar visitors who shared futuristic technology with ancient civilizations. Von Daniken theorized that many of Earth's most amazing structures and landmarks like the Egyptian pyramids, Stonehenge, the Moai of Easter Island, the Nazca lines in Peru, and cart-ruts in Malta and Australia had been influenced or utilized by these benevolent beings from beyond. He also hypothesized that artwork throughout the world could be interpreted as depicting helmeted astronauts, fantastic air and space vehicles, intricate spaceports, and complex machines far outside any known human technologies of the time. The Swiss author went on to write another 32 sequels and companion novels on the spacey subject selling a staggering 63 million copies and his works have spawned multiple documentaries, Hollywood films, video games, and TV shows -- most notably the Ancient Aliens series on the History Channel. Check out SYFY WIRE's exclusive interview below with von Daniken, who makes his home in Switzerland, discussing the current state of ufology, how modern archaeologists and historians have debunked some of his groundbreaking theories, and what he hopes new generations of readers will take from his monumental book.
