We're all fascinated by mysteries and strange phenomena. But is the unexplained really unexplainable? In this series, science fiction legend William Shatner investigates all that is weird in the world and attempts to find a logical, scientific explanation. In this episode, a surfer saved from a shark; animals who seem to be able predict death at senior care homes; and the possibility of time travel.
William Shatner investigates three curious stories that suggest there is indeed life after death. An emotional visit to a Civil War battlefield leads a Connecticut man to believe he is the reincarnation of a dead general. Hoping to communicate with spirits and uncover genuine proof of the afterlife, scientists in England conduct a series of groundbreaking seances. In Haiti, a man dies after a sudden and mysterious illness but returns from the grave 20 years later.
William Shatner investigates three incredible stories that could spell the end of human life on Earth: decoding ancient Mayan texts, a physicist predicts a deadly super-volcano lurking beneath Yellowstone National Park will destroy the world in 2012; a NASA scientist makes an incredible alien discovery and believes a solar storm could destroy the planet; and one of the world's greatest minds makes a startling prediction about a sinister robot takeover - man and machine will merge by 2050.
A short history of Mind Control experimentation beginning with the Nazis through to the CIA's infamous MK Ultra program. This is a first in what will be a series of episodes examining infamous assassins throughout history, from JFK's alleged shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald to supposed Oklahoma Bomber Timothy McVeigh. Richard speaks with several researchers and investigators about their claims that these individuals were not responsible for their acts but rather part of the infamous MK Ultra program, mind control victims programmed to kill, or programmed to simply take the fall.
Richard travels to the field to meet several researchers who present evidence that suggests chemicals or biological agents might possibly be deliberately sprayed at high altitudes for a purpose undisclosed to the general public.
