Sept 11th, 2013 – NASA carries out the much anticipated LADEE (Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer) launch to the moon on an unmanned mission. The liftoff took placeOn the next day the camera crews reported that the cameras caught a frog launching into the air with the rocket.
That’s not the only ‘froggie’ presence we’ve experienced lately. An interesting and cute yellowish-green one starred in October at the end of the movie Gravity (released Oct 4th 2013), reminding the returning astronaut Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) how wonderful life on Earth is.
Last but not least, the trials of this space-frog in zero gravity freak her out, and make me think we should leave them behind.
Maybe frogs shouldn’t be in space.
