NASA mum on non human footprints

Not to be taken too seriously, but word is NASA has found some non human footprints somewhere in the solar system. Per usual, they’re covering it up!

Register – NASA is of course well-known in some circles* for having staged the Moon landings of the 1960s and 70s here on Earth for one of a variety of purposes, and in this context it should be noted that a keen amateur scientist, dinosaur expert Ray Stanford, has come forward to insist that in fact the footprint is nothing more than an ordinary terrestrial Cretaceous-era dino print.

Stanford, in fact, says that the footprint – most probably made by a hefty brute known as a nodosaur – is located in the grounds of a large NASA facility, the Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland: which would account for the space agency being able to successfully keep its location secret.

    Very cool! Therapod, sauropod and hadrosaur-type tracks are pretty common but stegosaurs, ankylosaurs & such seem to be fairly rare.

    Probably doesn’t need to be said, but human’s pattern-recognition software gone awry, mistaking a natural formation for a footprint, anyone?

    @Buzzsaw: you need to click though twice: the register is taking the piss regarding a relatively mundane, but still cool, announcement. :)

    Silly Register vultures. That’s a print left by the aliens that stole all our dinosaurs just before the big rock fell down. They covered their tracks pretty well but not entirely and now the jig is up.

    If they’d bring our saurouses back we might could call it even. Maybe even learn to get along and start interstellar commerce. That would be way cool and way energy inefficient, eh? Unless they had spice, that is.
