(Silver Spring, Md.) - Seventy-four percent of Americans believe in the existence of aliens - and 15 million believe that they have actually made contact with extraterrestrials. This March, Science Channel returns with its programming event dedicated to one of mankind's most pressing questions with ARE WE ALONE? - a week-long campaign dedicated to satisfying viewers' appetite for aliens. The week kicks off on Sunday, March 2 at 10 PM ET/PT with the premiere of new episodes of NASA'S UNEXPLAINED FILES, and continues with four more all-new programs including the series CLOSE ENCOUNTERS on Tuesday, March 4 at 10 PM ET/PT and a special premiere episode of THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN on Wednesday, March 5 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Today, thanks to NASA's ground-breaking Kepler mission, astronomers believe there are more than 20 billion alien worlds with liquid water and the potential to support life. ALIEN PLANET EARTHS transports viewers across the Milky Way to the surface of newly discovered exoplanets and exomoons using dynamic, state of the art CGI.

THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN - Wednesday, March 5 at 10 PM ET/PT

In an all-new episode of the critically acclaimed THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN, scientists seek answers to the controversial question "Is God An Alien Concept?". Ancient evidence suggests humans have practiced religion since they first walked the planet. But is God being worshipped in other worlds, across the cosmos? Is Earth the Universe's only home for religion? Or is God an Alien Concept? The answers might be buried here on Earth.

THROUGH THE WORMHOLE is produced by Revelations Entertainment. James Younger is executive producer with Morgan Freeman, Lori McCreary, and Tracy Mercer for Revelations Entertainment. Bernadette McDaid and Rocky Collins are executive producers for Science Channel and Lindsey Foster Blumberg is coordinating producer.
