Last time to see two Space Shuttles on the pads

In preparation for the upcoming mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope there is now a unique sight at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Space Shuttle Endeavour has been moved to 39B as a rescue vehicle if something goes wrong with Space Shuttle Atlantis during the servicing mission. It is truly a unique sight and will never been seen again since the pad is turned over the next generation rocket program at NASA and Shuttle missions will end in 2010. The sight is almost like a real version of the motion picture Armageddon which also has two shuttles on the pads, although some spaced-up future versions 🙂

Here is another great picture of them
