I want that frog to be okay (as in, not cooked) but even if the photo is of its last seconds of life, what a way to go!

the frog looks like it jumped as high as the rocket for just one millisecond

I can't even think about the frog. All I can think about is what an appropriate name "Wallops" is for a rocket facility.

Given how far away you had to be to photograph the rocket and the size of your average frog, I would say the frog is fine as long as it didn't weigh 3 or 4 tons.
This is a forced perspective trick.

NASA says that the camera was 'on a sound trigger', rather than manned, and could well have been rather closer. Doesn't dismiss that possibility; but rocket launches aren't something that they leave to the humans to photograph (though, obviously, their PR people aren't likely to keep the press away).

Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the frog as it was launched into the air was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the frog had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.

At his debriefing, the intrepid and celebrated Mr Frog showed signs of fatigue and had to be helped to the podium.

It's a bird!
It's a plane!
It's a frog!

When we were kids, if we wanted to blow up a frog we had to stick a firecracker up its butt. And we liked it.

That picture is a poignant symbol of whatever political point I'm trying to make.
