At last , found it under the Speculation section : )
yayayaya : )

Book Description:

Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance--the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth had been visited by aliens. This world-famous bestseller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eyes of the Sphinx. But here is where it all began--von Daniken's startling theories of our earliest encounters with alien worlds, based upon his lifelong studies of ancient ruins, lost cities, potential spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is von Daniken's theory that we ourselves are the descendants of these galactic pioneers--and the archeological discoveries that prove it...

* An alien astronaut preserved in a pyramid * Thousand-year-old spaceflight navigation charts * Computer astronomy from Incan and Egyptian ruins * A map of the land beneath the ice cap of Antarctica * A giant spaceport discovered in the Andes

Includes remarkable photos that document mankind's first contact with aliens at the dawn of civilization.

The old cover series ( also the last one when i found it ) : )

Have a look at following examples : ( a few)

1. Egyptian Pyramids - Pyramids are such a precise examples of ancient engineering. Not even the best builders can replicate the pyramids today.
a) The height of pyramids of Cheops multiplied by a thousand million- - 98,000,000 miles- corresponds to the distance between Sun and Earth. - Coincidence?
b) Meridian running through the pyramids divides continents and oceans into exact halves
c) Area of the base of pyramid divided by twice its height gives the much celebrated figure of PIE (3.1415926)

Pyramid of Khufu !! The Sphinx and the Pyramid of Khufu

The Great Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu) The stars were thought to have been the Nile in the sky. The southern shaft from the King's Chamber points directly to where Orion's Belt would have been in the ancient sky. The southern shaft of the Queen's Chamber points to Syrius. The northern shaft of the King's Chamber points to the circumpolar stars. These stars never disappear in the sky. It is thought that these shafts were to help the spirit of the dead pharaoh find the important stars. (More click here )
Were the pyramids made for aliens? or by aliens?

2. Nazca , Peru

The Drawings - Nasca Lines

Däniken’s theories also rely on figures like this one being ancient depictions of visiting aliens. This one was probably called The Astronaut because of him. It is one of the few Nazca geoglyphs drawn on a hillside rather than on the desert floor and as such would have been clearly visible to its creators. These vertical geoglyphs predate the horizontal ones and possibly helped the Nazcans to perfect their unique drawing skills. The alleged alien landing strips were created many hundreds of years after this alleged alien was drawn!

Human figure in Nazca lines - Did they make image of an ancient space traveler?

Why were these lines made? People have claimed that these could be for various reasons...response to Eye of God, Astronomical calendar, etc (For detail - click here)

3. Moai - who brought them to the Easter Island? and why?

The Black Mark - Supposed to be the location of the statue !

Moai Statues

4. Tiahuanacu, Bolivia

Was this made as a tribute to space "gods" who never came back? (click here to read more on this

5. Ancient map of Piri Reis - How was the (Turkish) Piri Reis, famous admiral, in 1513, able to draw such a precise map of world (when we did not know that Earth is round!)

The Piri Reis map shows the western coast of Africa, the eastern coast of South America, and the northern coast of Antarctica. The northern coastline of Antarctica is perfectly detailed. The most puzzling however is not so much how Piri Reis managed to draw such an accurate map of the Antarctic region 300 years before it was discovered, but that the map shows the coastline under the ice. Geological evidence confirms that the latest date Queen Maud Land could have been charted in an ice-free state is 4000 BC. (Click here to read more)

It is believed he had access to Libraries of Alexandria which dated back to thousands of years. But how come the ancient civilizations had such advanced technology to trace the world map? Did they know to fly? how come they tracked Antarctica which is all ice since thousands of years?

6) Great Siberian explosions in Taiga and Tunguska
This handout file image obtained on March 9, 2005 from NASA shows the Meteor Crater in Arizona. A hundred years ago this week, on June 30, 1908, a gigantic explosion ripped open the dawn sky above the swampy taiga forest of western Siberia, leaving a scientific riddle that endures to this day. What caused the so-called Tunguska Event in Siberia, named after the Podkamennaya Tunguska river near where it happened, has spawned at least a half a dozen theories, including the idea that a meteor similar to what happened in Arizona some 49,000 years ago.

Reports indicate that the cosmic object's original path would have taken it to Moscow. Millions of people would have died if the explosion happened there. Something saved Moscow. Something spared Moscow of an unimaginable human tragedy. The UFO cylinder changed course and exploded in a place where NOT ONE HUMAN DIED. The closest people to the Great Siberian Explosion had their huts destroyed and their clothes nearly burned off their backs.

Was it an act of God that diverted the course of the cosmic object? More likely, an alien race acted with compassion to save millions of human lives. Could two alien races have been at war and one protected the innocent lives below? We will never know exactly what happened. The truth is the ground is still shaking from the 1908 event.
