This frog gives new meaning to “giant leap”. This little guy was obviously startled by the ignition of the Minotaur V rocket that launched the LADEE spacecraft last Friday.


I’ve confirmed this image is in fact an actual photo taken by one of NASA’s remote cameras set up for the launch on September 6, 2013 from the Wallops/Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport. Wallops spokesman Jeremy Eggers confirms the picture is legitimate and was not altered in any way. ... M_ID=17966

However, I cannot say with any certainty that no frog was harmed in the making of this picture.

wonder if the rocket thrust lifted him up of the ground, because that is one gaint leap lol, or i wonder if he jumped just at the right time and caught a ride on the updraft cool pic all the same.

Security is a bit lax if some French dude can use the support tower for a base jump during a rocket launch.

Go to google Earth or google maps and type the lat/long
29.9792458 N, 31 8' 3.11" E

This takes you to the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid

299,792,458 m/sec is speed of Light.

This is a coincidence?
