Scientists say ‘Alien’ Mummy Study was Deeply Flawed

The mysterious 6-inch skeleton found in Chile’s Atacama Desert more than a decade ago, has perplexed scientists.

Nicknamed Ata, the tiny mummy that was found in the Atacama Desert in 2003, became the subject of documentaries and studies.



Published earlier this year, a study concluded that mummy Ata was a human girl, detailing that she suffered ‘genetic abnormalities and accelerated bone age.’

Now a new scientific research disagrees on the science and ethics of the study.

It uncovers faulty methods and ethical concerns.



Dr Bernardo Arriaza, a bioarchaeologist from the University of Tarapacá in Chile, said:

“This mummy reflects a sad loss for a mother in the Atacama Desert.”
