Talk about perfect timing! This is seriously a one-in-a-million photograph.
Last week, NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) spacecraft blasted off into space!
During liftoff, a photo was captured by one of NASA's remote cameras and it showed something pretty incredible: a frog being launched into the air by the force of the rocket's thrusters.
NASA confirmed the frog photo, saying:
"The photo team confirms the frog. The condition of the frog, however, is uncertain."
Hmm, yeah, we're not sure that frog survived being that close to a rocket blast.
It's theorized that the little froggy was that close to the launch pad because there's a pool of water around the pad used to dampen noise and protect the pad from blast damage.
The frog must've been just hanging out in the water at the wrong time. Poor little froggy…
Still, that's one AH-mazing photo!!
