Since 2012 Science Channel has been sparking viewers’ curiosity about space and the potential for life on other planets with ARE WE ALONE? WEEK, beginning Monday, March 2 through Friday, March 6. Each night exclusive world premiere programming will explore the science, the facts and the fiction behind mankind’s most pressing question. According to scientists, there 40 billion habitable planets in our galaxy, suggesting that the universe is teeming with life. But why haven’t we discovered any yet? Our technology has grown leaps and bounds yet are humans still the only intelligent beings in the universe?
New to ARE WE ALONE? WEEK, Science Channel shares stories of those individuals who are brave enough to admit to encounters with out-of-this-world experiences. Science Channel visited the 2015 UFO Congress to speak to those who have experienced life beyond this planet as they share their tales for the first time.
Viewers will also have a chance to enjoy encore presentations of past seasons of ARE WE ALONE? WEEK favorites with updated features including NASA’s UNEXPLAINED FILES, CLOSE ENOUNTERS and UFO CONSPIRACIES
