Scientists Just Proved That 'Alien' Mummy Found 15 Years Ago In Chile Wasn't An Alien

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

 Fifteen years ago, in Chile a tiny mummy was found. At the time no one knew what it was. Some speculated from its six-inch size and elongated skull it proved evidence of alien life. Well, the truth is far less interesting. Turns out the mummy called Ata, is human. 

A group of scientists, led by Garry Nolan from Stanford University along with colleagues from UCSF using DNA evidence confirmed it was the skeleton of a female child that died before birth or shortly after around 40 years ago.
