An unsuspecting frog went for a bit of a wild ride last Friday (Sept. 6) when the launch of NASA's moon-bound LADEE spacecraft sent it skyward amidst
a plume of smoke. Look closely: The frog can be seen to the left of the rocket, against a background of reddish-orange smoke released from the
Minotaur V rocket.
A sound-triggered still camera set up near the launch pad captured this incredible photo of the airborne frog during the launch from NASA's Wallops
Flight Facility in Virginia. The agency's photo team confirmed the image is real, and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras. But
as for the poor frog? "The condition of the frog, however, is uncertain," NASA officials said in a statement.
