Fifty years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, ex-CIA operative Mike Baker travels to Dallas to investigate the conspiracy theories surrounding his assassination. Here Mike Baker speaks with conspiracy theorist Jim Marrs.

While in Dallas, Mike trains his sights on the crime of the century to try to solve the mystery: Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone in the Texas School Book Depository?

Mike uses his skills as a trained sniper to test the second gunman theory like never before.

He fires the weapon from the grassy knoll at a passing vintage limo resembling the one in which President Kennedy was shot.

Mike’s rifle is loaded with blanks, but the results are shocking and the test is unprecedented.

Richard Belzer, actor and author of Hit List: An In-Depth Investigation into the Mysterious Deaths of Witnesses to the JFK Assassination, lends his expertise in an interview.

Imagine a place where the government bans the use of Wi-Fi, cellular phones and nearly all wireless electronics. Welcome to the Quiet Zone!

Michael Stephens, investigator, creator and host of “Vsauce,” YouTube's most popular science and technology show, talks with a man who hunts down radio signals in the Quiet Zone.

Green Bank, WV, also known as the Quiet Zone, is located deep in the lush Allegheny Mountain Range. Here, wireless electronics are strictly banned to protect the world's largest steerable radio telescope.

Investigator Michael Stephens talks to Karen O'Neil, the Green Bank Site Director for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.

Science Investigator Cara Santa Maria visits a site that many call the most dangerous place in America. She'll explore the country's only underground nuclear waste dump.

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in Loving, NM, houses tons of low-level radioactive waste in caverns cut into a natural salt bed more than half a mile below earth's surface.

Investigator Cara and WIPP Chief Scientist Roger Nelson ride through the underground tunnels of the New Mexico Nuclear Waste Isolation Plant. But many believe the federal government's real plan is to eventually bury extremely toxic high-level nuclear waste into the facility, either secretly or by changing the existing laws. How safe is this nuclear burial ground?
