It’s the age-old question that has daunted scientists, government officials, explorers, religious leaders and populations around the world for centuries – have aliens made contact with Earth? While more than half the U.S. population believes they have, most sightings and theories still lack the evidential proof to silence the naysayers. In the new series Contact, six highly trained investigators seek to find the answers we’ve all been searching for. Using groundbreaking CIA developed software, military special operations investigative techniques and boots-on-the-ground journalism to track down leads around the world, Contact is the first ever global investigation to determine whether or not aliens have made contact here on Earth.
Whether it’s declassified footage of fast-moving objects, patterns in social media sightings that coincide with seismic activity, or eyewitness accounts that connect to evidence from the past, the team of investigators leave no stone unturned. By using state-of-the-art technology paired with social media’s unique ability to connect and share stories across the globe, investigators are able to gather intel and identify patterns like never before. From astrophysicists and journalists, to former Green Beret interrogators and professors, Contact’s team of experts take viewers on a search for answers that is out of this world.
