"OUTRAGEOUS ACTS OF SCIENCE" DECODES THE DNA OF THE INTERNET'S MOST RIDICULOUS VIRAL VIDEOS ON SCIENCE CHANNEL

- Youtube Sensations Get the Science Channel Treatment When OUTRAGEOUS ACTS OF SCIENCE Premieres Sat. February 15 at 10:00 PM-

(Silver Spring, Md.) - The internet is undoubtedly the world's greatest source for ridiculous, hilarious and mind-blowing video clips. But what if the time spent playing Youtube videos also exposed us to first-hand demonstrations of some of science's fundamental principles? Science Channel proves that you can have your viral videos and your lab lessons too with the second season of the breakout series OUTRAGEOUS ACTS OF SCIENCE.

Part Brian Games, part Tosh.O, each episode counts down the 20 best web videos testing the principles of physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. From death-defying dives from the sky, to epic explosions that rock the desert, to full-sized cars performing perfect backflips no experiment is too extreme when OUTRAGEOUS ACTS OF SCIENCE Season 2 premieres Saturday, February 15th at 10:00PM ET/PT.

OUTRAGEOUS ACTS OF SCIENCE is the fast-paced countdown series where producers scour the web for the most shocking stunts and reckless displays of insanity. Each episode counts down 20 clips while a team of notable scientists breaks down the principles behind these unintentional geniuses. Our expert panel features thought leaders across many disciplines of science headlined by: astrophysicist Hakeem Oluseyi, biologist Dr. Carin Bondar, and mathematician Matt Parker.

In the premiere episode, "Kings of Carnage", we meet a doomsday believer practicing for the Zombie Apocalypse with beer cans, a daredevil driver who speeds into the eye of a swirling Arizona dust tornado, and a stunt jumper who chooses a homemade flying suit over a parachute for a 3000-foot freefall.

"OUTRAGEOUS ACTS OF SCIENCE is an irresistibly over-the-top show that showcases people doing things with science that they probably shouldn't. However, sometimes a backyard stunt can unlock a scientific breakthough and our team of leading experts is there to break down the brilliance," said Deborah Adler Myers, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Science Channel. "OUTRAGEOUS ACTS OF SCIENCE was a huge hit for us last year and begs for binge viewing. It's guaranteed to mesmerize the inner amateur scientist in us all."
