      SCI FI Supports New Scientific Initiative to Investigate Unidentified
      Aerial Phenomena

      Unprecedented Cooperative Joins Together Major Organizations to Engage
      Scientific Community WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Recognizing the
      need to establish the scientific legitimacy of investigating unidentified
      aerial phenomena (UAP), SCI FI Channel today announced a new initiative
      that brings together the major organizations investigating this still
      mysterious phenomenon and establishes a multi-group effort to study the
      physical evidence associated with UAP reports.

      This unprecedented initiative, supported by the SCI FI Channel, joins
      together all of the major organizations that study the phenomenon -- the
      Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS), the Fund for UFO Research (FUFOR), the
      Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the National Aviation Center for Anomalous
      Phenomena (NARCAP), the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS),
      and the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

      The goal of the effort is to engage the interest of the broader scientific
      community with cases featuring trace physical evidence. The cooperative
      will spearhead thorough scientific investigations of these cases with the
      intent to publish results in mainstream scientific journals. The groups
      have created a joint website where members of the public, as well as
      scientists, can report current UFO sightings (www.ufoscience.org).

      "For nearly 50 years, numerous organizations and individuals have reported
      on and studied the UFO phenomenon," said Dr. Mark Rodeghier, Scientific
      Director of CUFOS. "Until now, these organizations have not combined
      their accumulated knowledge, expertise, and resources to establish and
      oversee a systematic, rigorous effort to investigate scientifically
      promising UAP cases."

      At an organizing meeting held this past June in Washington, D.C., leaders
      of these organizations agreed to develop a framework and protocols to
      conduct rapid investigation and analysis of cases with physical evidence.
      "Obtaining and analyzing physical evidence is the best way to determine
      the validity, and potential causes, of the UAP phenomenon," said John
      Schuessler, International Director of MUFON.

      "It is our hope that by working with scientists who can subject this
      phenomenon to rigorous investigation and laboratory study, we can
      understand more about the likely causes of UAP, whether it occurs with
      discernible patterns or trends, whether existing knowledge is adequate to
      provide explanations, or whether the phenomenon represents something truly
      unexplained," said Don Berliner, Chairman of FUFOR.

      In addition to landmark documentary programming, last year SCI FI launched
      a Washington, D.C. based public advocacy initiative to draw greater
      attention to the UFO phenomenon by the media, scientists and opinion
      leaders. Those interested in more information on SCI FI's supported
      public advocacy initiative can log on to www.freedomofinfo.org. On
      December 12 the channel will premiere UFO INVASION AT RENDLESHAM, a new
      two-hour special hosted by Bryant Gumbel, exposing what has come to be
      regarded as the most significant military-UFO incident in history
