Summary

There are many examples of technology and beliefs appearing decades—even centuries before they supposedly originated. The Apollo Program was outlined a century before it happened. A painting from the Middle Ages shows a flying toy helicopter. We’ve found ancient Greek computers and heard stories of Roman death rays. The Pacific Front of World War II was described 16 years before the war started.

The existence and documentation of these and many other events and anomalies impossibly ahead of their time are beyond dispute. Out of Place in Time and Space delves deeply into these impossibilities, showcasing:

Objects, beliefs, and practices from the present that show up in the past, long before they were supposedly invented.
Personal careers that appear to have been founded on knowlege of the future.
Roman-era machines that were hundreds of years ahead of their time
UFOs, never officially documented in any time period, yet still showing up in medieval paintings.
