He dreamed the dream, and wished to reach the skies just like Space Bat

Upvote because I laughed out loud from the toilet and am now embarrassed.

LADEE was the payload, the launch vehicle was a Minotaur V.

If legit that belongs in the news - sell them the image yo! Made me burst out laughing, then feel a little sorry for the little guy, then laugh again :)

Makes sense that it would be a frog..the launch pads have water pools at the base, to absorb the heat from the blastoff.

Not sure if shopped or...

This is the first thing in r/funny to actually make me laugh...and not just expell a lot of air from my nose

He clearly wanted to find his friend spacebat.

You live on the Eastern Shore in Accomack County, VA?

I'm so sorry...

I guess you could call that... sunglasses on one giant leap.

I watched this all the way from my front yard in northern New England!

I downloaded the Google Earth file that showed the trajectory, set it to surface view from my house, and noted where it would be on the horizon.

Then I streamed the launch from my ipad so I knew it took off. The ISS is always on time, but rockets are sometimes delayed.

It appeared as a bright orange star that rose from the ...

The scottish scientist said to the frog, "Fly LADEE, fly!".

PardonmyMember 09/10/2013

Reminds me of the whale scene from Hitchhiker's Guide.

In frog heaven, when all the frogs swap stories about cruel kids and firecrackers, this frog will win.

Shawnagain 09/10/2013

Omg, I pissed my pants laughing!

demon8rix 09/10/2013

I see quite a few unhappy twigs as well.

jrummer 09/10/2013

You must be mistaken.

This frog was in the capsule that came with superman.

The launching of the rocket must have brought out the inner super frog in him.

He's just flying.

Let the frog be free and high.

Kind of like my screen name

Ribbit

Translation: Fly me to the Moooooooon!

CmdrVimes42 09/10/2013

The perspective is making me think it is a tinier rocket.

♪♫ I wish I could fly, Right up to the sky! But i can't :( ♪♫

BoboDarge 09/10/2013

That's todelly cool

jtho2g 09/10/2013

LADEE was just the payload. it's an atmospheric data collection satellite that will be orbiting the moon. It was launched using Minotaur rockets

thepony88 09/10/2013

When asked for comment the frog replied "I believe I can flyyyyyy"
