NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – A grouping of 110 to 112 million-year-old dinosaur footprints pressed into mud from the Cretaceous Period have now been safely moved from their original setting on the grounds of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.

Until further scientific study is possible, the footprints, now wrapped in protective material, will be stored on the Goddard campus.

This imprint shows the right rear foot of a nodosaur - a low-slung, spiny leaf-eater - apparently moving in haste as the heel did not fully settle in the cretaceous mud, according to dinosaur tracker Ray Stanford. It was found recently on NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center campus and is being preserved for study. (Credit: Ray Stanford)
