On October 20, 1967, a pair of hunters caught on film the image of a solitary creature in the wilds of Northern California.  After a media firestorm, no credible evidence could prove the existence of this “Bigfoot” and for the next 40 years the sighting was largely deemed a hoax.  On November 6th, 2007, the NASA rover, Spirit, photographed the same creature on a ridge just south of Grissom Hill.  The location?  Fourth planet from the sun: Mars.   This winter … Action Lab reveals how he got there.
