An unlucky frog seems to have hopped in front of a photo taken of the LADEE launchat Wallops Island Flight Facility in Virginia on Sept. 6.
The website explains:
The launchpad at the Wallops/Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport has a “pool” for the high-volume water deluge system that activates during launches to protect the pad from damage and for noise suppression, and likely there was a (formerly) damp, cool place that was a nice spot for a frog to hang out.
LADEE, which stands for Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer, is a robotic mission conducted by NASA. The probe will orbit the moon and send back information about the lunar surface and atmosphere.
