Looks like a frog tried to hop on NASA’s rocket Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE), which blasted off from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on September 6. “The photo team confirms the frog is real and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras used to photograph the launch,” NASA writes. CNN rounded up the best puns about this photobomb, including “From lily pad to launch pad” (The Independent) and “An unlucky frog took a giant leap for mankind” (News.com.au).

I know cooking isn't rocket science, but you don't cook frog's legs with rockets...
