Ok, not sure as yet what to think of this one, but I have read an article today that claims that NASA has released a photo of a non human footprint dating back over 100 million years. This footprint is about 12" across and has 4 toes. Certain scientists are claiming it is a dinosaur footprint as NASA are not disclosing where the picture was taken. This is more than likely a hoax, but interesting all the same.

Have a read of the article yourself and draw your own conclusions folks.

Ok on further reading people are saying it is a nodosaur footprint, found on the NASA campus, which is in itself quite interesting.

Did you follow the link at the bottom of that story?

www.nasa.gov...


Not one, but two nodosaurs passed through the campus of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., between 110 and 112 million years ago, a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) paleontologist confirmed.

The second track, overlapping the first, looks to be a young version of the same creature, perhaps following and sniffing along after, said Rob Weems, emeritus paleontologist and stratigrapher with the USGS, from Reston, Va. "It's definitely a track.”


They tell you exactly what they are.

Here's a more accurate story...

lightyears.blogs.cnn.com...


Dinosaur tracker Ray Stanford this summer discovered on the center's campus the apparent footprint of a nodosaur, a plant-eater that roamed suburban Washington, D.C., about 110 million years ago.

The track, almost 14 inches wide, is near a sidewalk at the Goddard complex in Greenbelt, Maryland, home to 7,000 employees engaged in astrophysics, heliophysics and planetary science.


It's a dinosaur track. Of course it's non human

Part of the Register story is most definitely a hoax. They claim that


In an unusual twist, the space agency refuses to divulge just where in the solar system the massive footprint was found:


Yet the NASA story they link to clearly provides a location:


Not one, but two nodosaurs passed through the campus of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md


The Register must count on some people being too lazy to bother to click the link to check out the story, and in your case, they were right.

If someone wants to make a thread about the NASA story, that's not a hoax.

The Register story is clearly a hoax and this should be moved to the hoax forum.

Doesnt really matter, this story broke a week ago in the Washington Post and other major East Coast papers...

Ray Stanford is one bright guy, imho, and has done some great work. I'm still trying to get a hold of a copy of "Soccorro Saucer in a Pentagon Pantry", his book on the Soccorro/Lonnie Zamora case...
He also has some great UFO footage from Texas he's yet to share, except privately....

Strange, huh? Makes you wonder how far they can travel, and get a picture with that much detail without sending a rover, or..a human to the planet or moon. Just a thought.

Goddard Facilities Manager Alan Binstock said the agency considers the footprint and its location “sensitive but unclassified.”

The footprint is on federal land, so improperly removing it could potentially violate three laws: the Antiquities Act, the Archaeological Resources Protection Act and the Paleontological Resources Preservation Act.


It's on Earth, it's made by a dinosaur, and it's location isn't secret, they just want to keep it as quiet as possible for the time being, probably so some idiots don't go digging it up.

Yes it is...it may take the p*ss sometimes, but it's a reliable UK, IT specific site for computer geeks. You should read about their PARIS (Paper Aircraft Released Into Space aka Vulture 1 which flew 17 miles up and took pix) and LOHAN ( Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator aka Vulture 2, under construction) spacecraft.

Not to mention they are creators of the phrase "Bulgarian airbags" based on the story of a Bulgarian woman whose breast implants saved her in a car crash.
