A Frog Makes One Hell of An Appearance During Launch

Apparently, a frog got a little too close as NASA launched the LADEE spacecraft at Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia earlier this week. Why is a frog lurking around near the launch pad? Who knows? But I’m pretty sure he ended up getting a little bit more than he bargained for. Next Impulse wishes the little guy luck if he made it.

We’ve confirmed this image is in fact an actual photo taken by one of NASA’s remote cameras set up for the launch from the Wallops/Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport. Wallops spokesman Jeremy Eggers confirms the picture is legitimate and was not altered in any way.
