Something you don’t see every day…

Atlantis on 39A and Endeavor on 39B

Atlantis on 39A and Endeavor on 39B

Something you may never see again, either…even if two shuttles were on the pads at the same time, which is very unlikely, at least one should be enclosed by the service tower. This only happened for a few hours last Saturday morning.

It’s probably the only time a shuttle will ever be used as backup to another. Since the Hubble repair mission doesn’t stop at the ISS, in case of problems there would be no place for the crew to stay until a mission could be launched.

I don’t want to think about what this is costing, though…
