Dinosaur Footprint Found at NASA Center

For decades, scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., have been looking into the heavens to better understand our place in the universe, oblivious to a fascinating piece of Earth history literally under their feet.

About 110 million years ago, the land that now sports one of NASA’s premiere science centers was home to a four-footed tank of a dinosaur called a nodosaur, one of which left a calling card — a deep footprint inside ancient mud.

“Space scientists may walk along here, and they’re walking exactly where this big, bungling heavy armored dinosaur walked,” amateur dinosaur tracker Ray Stanford said.
