More than 50 years ago, in 1959, NASA built its Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. But it wasn't until last month a startling discovery was made. Right under the nose of America's top scientists, a dinosaur track was lurking.

On Aug. 17, dino tracker Ray Stanford found the partial footprint of a nodosaur (seen above with a small nodosaur model in the centre), which lived some 110 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period, on the NASA campus. It's an odd place to uncover a dinosaur track, to be sure, but it's hardly the only spot proof of the creatures has turned up lately. Click through to find a round-up of all the recent dino finds from across the world.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I hang on to my tech goodies for good reason.
