Frog tries to blast off into space by attaching itself to NASA space rocket [Image]

Apparently what happened is a frog was roaming around in the rocket’s “high-volume water deluge system” prior to rocket blast off:

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.

I wonder where the frog landed.
