When HISTORY’s Project Blue Book returns for a second season on January 21, the action moves from external to internal, from space to Earth, and from the unknown to what we think we know. Set during the Cold War, and inspired by true accounts, the series delves into the fear that results when conspiracists start spinning their theories. At the time, as people saw an increasing number of unidentified flying objects they naturally reported odd lights and sometimes alien encounters to the authorities. Beginning in 1952, the Air Force collected these reports, and as military agencies tended to do -- especially in the years following World War II -- they were classified in Project Blue Book. Eventually declassified, those reports make up the basis for this series.
