Scientist Plans To Find Bigfoot By Using High-Tech Blimp


/ November 5, 2012

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.
