SHOCK AND SCIENCE COLLIDE IN THE ALL-NEW SERIES, "CHAOS CAUGHT ON CAMERA"

--New Series on Science Channel Features Rare Footage of Shocking Events and the Science That Saved the Day --

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Viral videos flood the Internet when a spontaneously chaotic event is haphazardly captured on film. These heart-stopping moments are at the center of the new Science Channel series, CHAOS CAUGHT ON CAMERA. The series features user-generated content from disastrous situations and is deconstructed with incredible statistics to reveal the life-saving science at the center of the unbelievable events. Ten all-new episode feature scenes from catastrophic weather, amazing tales of human endurance, disastrous engineering fails, astonishing animal attacks and incredible real time footage of near fatal accidents. CHAOS CAUGHT ON CAMERA premieres Monday, April 13th at 10:00 PM on Science Channel.

"Mobile technology allows individuals across the world to catch once-in-a-lifetime moments on camera at the touch of a button" said Rita Mullin, General Manager of Science Channel. "The brave filmmakers behind the lens of these incredible clips make us question how we would react when confronted with life threatening events. Its fascinating must watch TV where the powers of science are undeniably at play."

Is it possible for a man to out ski an avalanche in the Alpines of France? How long can a chef trapped sunken ship stay alive with only a can of soda? Can a group of skydivers endure an all-encompassing fireball during an in-air collision? These questions - and many more - are broken down by astonishing statistics and graphic reconstructions of the event to explain the scientific principals that ruled the outcome of these events.
