NASA Rocket Blasts Frog Into Orbit
In an article originally posted by the New York Post, your imagination is confirmed. What you "think" you see is really what you're seeing!
That's really a frog going into orbit, orbit, orbit. A remote NASA camera caught the frog in a single frame which NASA insists wasn't doctored to further the ribboting drama.
The photo was shot last week during blast off of the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer spacecraft.at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
Because the launch pad is adjacent to a wildlife refuge in Accomack County, it isn't far fetched that the frog might have wandered a little too close to the pad for comfort, but actually catching this in a photo is somewhat jaw dropping.
The LADEE spacecraft is set to orbit the moon and gather data about dust in the lunar sky.
