On Wednesday (Jan. 23), an image taken by NASA in 2004 surfaced all over the Internet, showing what appears to be a shadowy, human-like figure sitting on a rock.
But the picture also bears a striking resemblance to the hulking, hairy image of Bigfoot, and one Sasquatch expert says the similarities might be more than a coincidence.
For more than 30 years, David Shealy has been researching the Skunk Ape, a smaller version of the celebrated creature, and he says theres a large group of people who believe Bigfoot is from outer space, since many Bigfoot sightings are followed by UFO sightings.
However, Bigfoots meat-based diet is a factor that could prevent him from living on Mars, and Shealy also warns people to keep fiction separate from science when studying the planetary photo.
Shealy explains, Its definitely worth looking into, but as far as a Chewbacca-type animal, its a little far-fetched. Theres a lot of talk about Bigfoot materializing like on Star Trek, but thats a little implausible, too.
