Dinosaur Discoveries

While NASA Explores Space, Dino Prints Discovered on Campus

A dinosaur foot print was found in the backyard of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center campus in Maryland, measuring in at 12-inches wide. The footprint is believed to belong to a Nodosaur, a plant-eating, armor studded dino that roamed the area about 110 million years ago.

Several other smaller dinosaur footprints were also discovered in the backyard of NASA, most likely from theropods.

For more on this discovery, and to see the image of the footprint, visit NBC News.
