The tiny skeleton, known as the Atacama Humanoid, has fuelled speculation for ten years, with many considering it to be proof of extra-terrestrial life
The mummified remains of a six-inch “space alien”, discovered a decade ago in the Chilean desert, have been identified as human.
The tiny skeleton has fuelled speculation for 10 years, with many considering it to be proof of extra-terrestrial life while others believed it was an aborted foetus or a monkey.
The creature, known as the Atacama Humanoid (or ‘Ata’), was found in Chile’s Atacama Desert in 2003.
The discovery was made by Oscar Munoz, who had been searching for objects of historical value near to an abandoned church in La Noria.
He described Ata to Open Minds as: “A strange skeleton, no bigger than 15cm [the size of a pen].
“It was a creature with hard teeth, a bulging head with an additional odd bulge on top. It’s body was scaly and of dark colour. Unlike humans, it had nine ribs.”
Now UFO documentary Sirius has revealed that Ata was not a hoax but in fact a mummified human, the Huffington Post reported.
According to documents, a forensic medical expert at Basque University, in northern Spain, said: “It’s a mummified body with all typical characteristics of a foetus.
