The tiny being found in the desert turns out to be human, but is still quite puzzling. Via the Huffington Post:
The mummified remains of what looks like a 6-inch space alien has turned “Sirius” into the most eagerly awaited documentary among UFO enthusiasts. The findings, however, might come as a disappointment.
Filmmakers claimed the documentary would reveal that the DNA of the creature with an oversized alien-looking head couldn’t be medically classified. In fact, the film, which premiered Monday, features a scientist who concluded the little humanoid was human.
“I can say with absolute certainty that it is not a monkey. It lived to the age of six to eight. It calls into question how big the thing might have been when it was born,”said Garry Nolan, director of stem cell biology at Stanford University’s School of Medicine in California.
The remains of the small humanoid, nicknamed Ata, were discovered in Chile’s Atacama Desert 10 years ago.
