Unfortunate Frog Blown Sky High by NASA Probe Takeoff

Unfortunate Frog Blown Sky High by NASA Probe Takeoff
 
 

A frog got caught up in the NASA moon probe launch and was blown sky high. A picture snapped of the takeoff clearly showed the unfortunate creature being flung high into the air as the moon probe took off on its lunar journey.

PETA must have felt some degree of indignation when a frog was unluckily caught up in the human web of activities recently. The culprit was none other than NASA although the incident took place inadvertently. Just when the moon probe launch was about to take place a frog jumped into the fray. The poor creature was catapulted several feet up in the air thanks to the thrust of the liftoff. 

A photograph taken from ground level of the spacecraft going up into the atmosphere shows the amphibian being flung up into the air. What exactly became of the animal (whether it survived the assault or not) remains a mystery. 

The area surrounding the launch pad is a wildlife refuge. Therefore this is not a new phenomenon and has happened before. In fact, half a decade ago, a fruit bat faced a similar accident when it was carried up into the heights along with the Space Shuttle Discovery at Cape Canaveral. 


According to reports it probably got decimated during the launch. NASA spent $280 million on the launch of the moon probe which went perfectly (except for the tragedy of the frog). Human beings have not had a good record when it comes to the rights of animals. And maybe sometime in the future, the killing of an animal by a human (even for food) will be looked upon with the same disgust we currently feel for such outdated practices as cannibalism.
