A nodosaur print discovered in a NASA parking lot in Greenbelt.

Actually, it was the Cretaceous period, not the Jurassic, but the discovery was the find of a lifetime for amateur paleontologist Ray Stanford. He was leaving a parking lot at the NASA Goddard Space Center in Greenbelt when he spotted a fossilized dinosaur print in a piece of sandstone. The extraordinary discovery turned out to be a “Rosetta stone” of some 70 dinosaur footprints. He joins us to discuss his recently published study on the tracks and what they tell us about the dinosaurs who roamed Maryland some 110 million years ago.
