(Newser) – NASA can explain how its Voyager spacecraft managed the incredible feat of leaving the solar system, but this frog is a little more perplexing. A NASA still photo from the recent launch of the LADEE spacecraft has the bizarre sight of an airborne frog in the frame. Universe Today speculates that the frog was probably hanging out in a pool of water near the launchpad, minding its own business, when the rocket went up. NASA confirms that the photo is legit, and that things probably didn't end well for the little guy. "The condition of the frog," it says, "is uncertain."

See the frog? It's in the smoke, near the upper left.
