A blip on a screen, a dysfunctional key fob, or a faulty frequency. What could explain these mysterious interferences, and do they mean anything? In an all-new Science Channel series, PHANTOM SIGNALS, experts investigate these mysterious phenomena and breakdown the meaning behind these puzzling signals.

Across the globe, inexplicable events happen all the time, but it isn’t until a major incident challenges our understanding of the world that we become vigilant of these undetected dangers. When an intercept pilot near the Canadian border vanishes mid-air, experts are left searching for a reasonable explanation that could justify this rare occurrence. Similarly, when scientists discover a powerful radio beam in deep space that reaches Earth only to vanish and never return again, they’re left to wonder whether some signals are forever beyond our understanding.

Are these signals mere incidents or do they have a hidden message? From a suspected cosmonaut’s last communication to a perplexing cry for help over a radio, PHANTOM SIGNALS leaves no mysterious signal unexplored.
