This six-inch-long skeleton was discovered 10 years ago in Chile’s Atacama Desert, but it has only recently been examined by scientists — and it’s totally legit. Sure, it looks like something from a dark corner of the Gamma Quadrant, but the remains actually belonged to a severely deformed human child.
As Jeanna Bryner reports in LiveScience, the mummified remains recently underwent an examination by Garry Nolan, professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford School of Medicine. The bizarre skeleton was recently featured in film "Sirius," a crowd-funded documentary we recently warned, er, told you about. Predictably, UFOlogists think it’s some kind of human-alien hybrid.
