Video: NASA launches moon-orbiting satellite

NASA launched a Minotaur V rocket from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on September 6, carrying a probe that will orbit the moon and collect research data. This video from NASA shows the launch of the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer and gives background information. The launch was the subject of more attention after a photograph was released showing the silhouette of a frog blown into the air as the rocket left the launchpad. Credit: Youtube/NASA
