Your Daily Dinosaur:

First dinosaur in space! – Thanks @richardrussell!

The first dinosaur in space was Maiasaura peeblesorum (a duck-billed dinosaur). A piece of bone from a baby Maiasaura and a Maiasaura eggshell were taken into space by astronaut Loren Acton on an 8-day NASA mission (Spacelab 2) in 1985. The historic Maiasaura fossils now reside at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana, USA. Maiasaura is the official state dinosaur of Montana (since 1985). The second dinosaur in space was Coelophysis (a meat-eater). A Coelophysis skull was brought into space on the space shuttle Endeavor on January 22, 1998. It traveled to the space station Mir.
