APOCALYPTIC WEATHER, SUDDEN EXPLOSIONS AND UNIDENTIFIED CREATURES CAUGHT ON CAMERA IN A NEW SEASON OF “STRANGE EVIDENCE” ON SCIENCE CHANNEL

New Season Premieres Thursday, June 11, at 9 PM ET/PT on Science Channel

(NEW YORK) – Around the globe, billions of cameras are watching our every move. Whether on the streets, at work or at home, they see everything – even the bizarre and inexplicable. From apocalyptic weather occurrences and remarkable physical feats to unidentified creatures and the seemingly supernatural, cameras capture things that appear impossible and defy logic. In an all new season of STRANGE EVIDENCE, experts investigate these mysteries caught on tape and carry out forensic analysis to determine the truth behind these unusual events.

An all-new season of STRANGE EVIDENCE premieres Thursday, June 11 at 9pm ET/PT on Science Channel.

Throughout this season of STRANGE EVIDENCE, experts will investigate oddities from around the world captured on camera. In Nashville, a local man investigates a strange smell when suddenly the sidewalk beside him explodes into flames. Could it be connected to a nearby vehicle wreck or caused by a bootleggers’ hidden stash? In Hong Kong, a fisherman captures what appears to be the parting of the sea. But was this really a miracle reminiscent of the Old Testament, or a rare weird weather event? Workmen in Canada are dumbfounded when they film an enormous humanoid figure throwing a tree trunk in the forest. What beast is capable of throwing such massive weight, and is there a rational explanation?

From mysterious pulsing blue lights in New York City to strange aquatic monsters captured deep beneath the sea in Japan, STRANGE EVIDENCE investigates footage from around the world that appears to defy reason.

STRANGE EVIDENCE is produced for Science Channel by WAG Entertainment. For WAG Entertainment, Mark Carter is executive producer. For Science Channel, Wyatt Channell is executive producer.

(LOS ANGELES) – Egypt’s Black Pyramid, Jericho’s Great Walls and New York City’s Twin Towers – these are some of the world’s most impressive structures ever built. But what went into their construction? And what did researchers uncover about their unique backstories? UNEARTHED returns to Science Channel on Sunday, April 26, at 10 PM ET/PT, and decodes the mysteries of the world’s most iconic structures and monuments from ancient to present day.

In the premiere episode, researchers explore the Lost Kingdom of Babylon – once the largest city in the world and known as the cradle of civilization. The site included some of the greatest architectural marvels ever built, including the Hanging Gardens – one of the legendary seven wonders of the world. But did Babylon’s Hanging Gardens and impressive structures really exist? And if so, what did they look like? And just how did Babylon become the largest and richest city of the ancient world? With unprecedented access to pioneering archaeology, UNEARTHED takes viewers inside a brand-new excavation site that reveals new evidence about the kingdom in its earliest times and how it grows to become a place of unbelievable wonders. Charting cutting-edge drone surveying of the city walls, researchers investigate the real size of ancient Babylon.

Each week, viewers will get to explore these unique sites and how they were built, and in some cases, lost and rediscovered with stunning CGI animation and experts revealing the latest scientific research. UNEARTHED fuses elements of engineering, history, geology and archaeology, revealing the deepest secrets of each structure.

UNEARTHED shows the future of science and technology are key to understanding our past, and without these developments, we wouldn’t be able to unravel some of the world’s greatest mysteries.

ALL-NEW SPECIAL FEATURING STORIES FROM LEADING FIGURES IN SPACE


‘HUBBLE: THIRTY YEARS OF DISCOVERY’ Premieres Sunday, April 19 at 8 PM ET/PT on Science Channel
(NEW YORK) – Thirty years ago, the Hubble Space Telescope was designed to take people to places they only dreamed about going – beyond the Solar System and the outer reaches of the galaxy. Since its historic launch, Hubble has entirely changed the world’s understanding of the Universe. In honor of the Hubble’s upcoming 30th anniversary, Science Channel will air HUBBLE: THIRTY YEARS OF DISCOVERY, premiering Sunday, April 19 at 8pm ET/PT.
The two-hour special will tell the remarkable story of how the Hubble telescope was created by the leading engineers and scientists of our time. It will also include interviews with space’s most notable names including astronauts Michael Massimino, Kathryn Thornton, Story Musgrave, Steven Smith and John Grunsfeld.
On April 24, 1990, the space shuttle Discovery lifted off from Earth carrying the Hubble Space Telescope, one of the most complex machines ever built. Its mission: to capture images from the vast unknown of space for the next 15 years. Today, Hubble has far exceeded its original mission goal – having observed the Universe for nearly 30 years while making extraordinary contributions to science.
This behind-the-scenes special will also give viewers an intimate look like never before at Hubble’s incredible journey — from its earliest conception in 1923, to its five iconic missions spanning from 1993 to 2009. It will also spotlight the groundbreaking insights that Hubble has revealed about the planet as well as the broader Solar System and beyond. Science Channel is paying tribute to Hubble’s 30-year legacy along with its many fascinating stories and discoveries since becoming the world’s very own eye into the Universe.

FORMER CIA OPERATIVE MIKE BAKER TO INVESTIGATE TOP-SECRET GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS

FORMER CIA OPERATIVE MIKE BAKER TO INVESTIGATE TOP-SECRET GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS
IN NEW SCIENCE CHANNEL SERIES

‘BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED’ Premieres Thursday, April 2, at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel
(LOS ANGELES) – Every year, the government funds clandestine programs collectively called the black budget. But what’s exactly behind these secretive missions operating around the globe? Former CIA operative Mike Baker will dig into these mysterious programs each week in BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED, premiering Thursday, April 2, at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel.

With unprecedented access, Mike will look at different top-secret government program steeped in cutting edge science. Conducting his own research, speaking with journalists, experts, former government and black file officials and scientists, he’ll stop at nothing to delve deeper into these black files than has ever been done before.

In the first episode, Mike will explore a top-secret aviation program funded by a mysterious money trail that could revolutionize flight transportation by attaining Mach 5 speeds, nearly 4,000 mph. But could this hypersonic speed technology fall into the wrong hands? Mike delves into the black files and explores how a few nations are working on hypersonic missiles, capable of reaching their target in minutes and completely unstoppable.

In another episode, Mike digs into another clandestine program, investigating the credible sources of alien sightings and a program dedicated to researching, tracking and identifying UFOs. Even within the government, most don’t know about the program. Are they capturing hostile spy craft? Testing out latest technology? Or could it be something else? A series of recently released videos filmed by the Department of Defense show a technology that scientists and aviation experts agree is beyond our capability and very possibly, something from beyond our world. Mike Baker looks into one of the most fascinating subjects of our time.

Each week, BLACK FILES DECLASSIFIED will seek out the truth behind some of the world’s most intriguing mysteries. From a space-based military program to an undefeatable army with superhuman strength and the ability to kill with their minds, Mike will pull back the curtain on the programs that sound more like science fiction than truth.
