The fascination with space and space creatures existed long before movie magic and popular culture created “ET”, “Star Wars” or even the “Alien” franchise. The Final Frontier has been a source of endless conspiracy and controversy for decades.
Now, Fox Nation’s “Alien Abductions,” hosted by Abby Hornacek, unpacks some of the most legendary alien encounters and features people across the country who claim to have been abducted by extraterrestrial beings.
One of the many stories featured in the six-part series that Hornacek chronicles is the mysterious invention of the Integratron by George Van Tassel, a legendary alien abductee and ufologist who lived in California’s Mojave Desert.
Van Tassel is widely considered to be one of the first extraterrestrial contactees and in many ways started a movement in 1950s America after he allegedly encountered an alien from Venus named Solganda.

The new Fox Nation series unpacks the story of Van Tassel’s encounter with Solganda, who allegedly gave Van Tassel alien instructions on how to build an immortality device.
This device became known as the Integratron, which he saw as a time machine and healing device.
While building the 38-foot-tall structure, Van Tassel attracted a clientele that he eventually turned into the Church of Universal Wisdom, increasing financial support for his unusual device.

As the episode explores, fame and wealth have garnered increased attention from federal authorities. During the height of Cold War tensions, the FBI considered many new religions in conjunction with fears of communism.
By the time Van Tassel finished building the Integratron, he died, and federal authorities moved quickly to gather information on the contactee. But his creation lived long and prospered; The Integratron is still available to visit today and is believed to be precisely positioned to provide maximum healing through vibrational sound baths.
“His legacy lives on as a pioneering figure in the atomic-age UFO movement,” Hornacek described.
