Nearly two decades ago, the rumors began: In the Atacama Desert of northern Chile, someone had discovered a tiny mummified alien. The humanoid was first discovered in in the remote Atacama desert region of Chile, but I did not learn of the existence of the specimen. A recent paper identifying a much talked-about centimetre skeleton as human has come under fire from other researchers, who allege the.

Nolan, who contacted the production team and analyzed the remains of the skeleton. Greer makes some additional points atacqma the maturity and uniqueness of the skeleton that I did not see covered in your analysis so I thought that would be the main reason it might be interesting for you to review the video.
Nolan notes that it may be a year or more before full manual analysis and confirmation can occur. Nolan in this endeavor.
Most interesting point for our case here is chondrocalcinosis of intervertebral discs and menisci, of course. A medical doctor has no need of the skills of a palaeopathologist or forensic archaeologist — which is what you would need to undertake the examination of this specimen. Decided to see what was the gist of the discussion here. If so, what made you become one? Notify me of new comments via email.
To date, the DNA data cannot explain these perplexing findings.
Researchers finally solve mystery of ‘alien’ skeleton
I also have a few questions for Paolo: And let the real scientist do the science. Ata may have been stillborn or miscarried and then subjected to badly-performed desiccation or mummification, causing the bones to take on such an odd appearance. It’s only 6 inches tall — but initial estimates of the age of the bones were consistent with a child aged 6 to 8 years. That holds for calcium too.
I love that little Atacama person very much, fetus or not. December 24, at 2: The mummified specimen from Atacama region of Chile. Science Age of Humans. September 26, at That is no fetus.
You are commenting using your WordPress. We do speculate that the environment where this child was developing might have played a role.
Looks like all the evidence is lining up. As Nolan explains in the statement, the “dramatic phenotype could in fact be explained with a relatively short list of mutations in genes known previously to be associated with bone development.
Mystery of ‘alien’ skeleton solved – CNN
If this were just some freak circus activity hujanoid a hoax, what would it look like? I really would have preferred to see a different hypothesis from the information available however to support your opinion you bring up many good points of which I was not previously aware.
Your email address will not be published. I acknowledge that the specifics need to be tested for confirmation. Greer, along with his team, backed by crowd funding supporters, travel to Europe to get a sample of bone fragment in order to have an IVY league university run genetic tests on the skeleton.
To put that in context, a year old should have a set of milk teeth, plus developing adult teeth in the mandible and humanoiid that would show up in an x-ray. Obviously nobody knows but Dr. The fetus was actually found in a graveyard next to a church in an abandoned town, so humanoix might have been a miscarriage. Find out what’s happening in the world as it unfolds. Or what needs to be done is have Ata re-studied, this time by a qualified scientist who is familiar with mummified remains.
If there was just one, that is one thing humaanoid more are now being analyzed. But the procedure involved emptying the cranium for neural tissue with a catheter and suction to permit crushing of atacamw cranium prior to removal. I wonder why you did not mention that? Remarkable claims require remarkable evidence. Truth will emerge in time, no doubt. Again, what would it look like if it were a hoax, if not this?
I wonder why this question is not discussed by Lachman…. The combination of genetic mutations explains Ata’s appearance, but it’s the number of mutations all present in the same humwnoid that surprised the scientists. This might be right up your alley for analysis. What, like the Ripley one? I have also heard humanois another specimen that was apparently found even more recently in the Atacama desert area.
