frogs-spaceAll right, I do not want to get into a war of words concerning the differences between a frog and a toad, but what you see above is definitely not something that will happen every single day. No sir, it does seem to depict a tiny frog on the left hand side of the photo which so happens to be taking a leap of faith alongside a 90-foot-tall rocket that happens to be taking off from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

It is no doctored image for sure, as NASA has confirmed that this is a 100% legit photo which was snapped by a remote camera during Friday’s launch of the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE). NASA mentioned, “The photo team confirms the frog is real and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras used to photograph the launch.” Needless to say, chances are this little frog that could did not survive the fall, and even if it did, wouldn’t the heat from the rocket blast do a number on its sensitive skin? NASA has not yet certified the final condition of this little fellow, but I think you can start pouring in the “ribbituaries”.
