If you’re reading this right now, you’re probably thinking something along the lines of, “WTF?!” Trust us, we’re right there with you.

MSNBC reports that an Idaho scientist is on a quest to find the infamously mythical—in other words, most likely non-existent—Bigfoot by using a blimp over the U.S. mountain West.

In order to embark on his journey to prove the unbelievable, Jeffrey Meldrum—an anatomy and anthropology professor at Idaho State University—is raising $300,000+ in private donations to build the remote-controlled blimp, equipped with a thermal-imaging camera.

Meldrum, published author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, says of his mission, “The challenge with any animal that is rare, solitary, nocturnal and far-ranging in habitat is to find them and observe them in the wild; this technology provides for that.”

So, is this guy a looney mad scientist or will he be the one to finally prove the existence of Bigfoot once & for all? You be the judge, & give us your opinion on the topic.
