One Giant Leap for Frogkind


That's one giant leap! Unlucky frog photobombs NASA rocket launch. A frog has photobombed NASA's latest spacecraft launch - and could have croaked in the process. The silhouette of the ambitious amphibian was captured as the space agency launched its LADEE spacecraft at Wallops Islands Flight Facility in Virginia on September 6. The frog was likely hanging out at a pool near to the launchpad which stores water for a high pressure sprinkler system to prevent fires after launches and to suppress noise. The pool would have provided a damp cool place for the now-frazzled frog. At first there were questions whether the picture was real, but a NASA spokesperson confirmed to Universe Today that the frog was caught by one of its cameras as it was propelled through the air.
