Shuttle Atlantis sits on Launch Pad 39A (foreground) with Endeavour in the background, in preparation for STS-125, the final mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope. Endeavour is to be ready to launch as a rescue shuttle within one week of Atlantis, as this is the only post-Columbia shuttle mission not going to the space station. It is the last planned time two shuttles will occupy the pads at the same time, and only the third time ever both are visible with launch towers retracted.

Once in a lifetime shot. Most of us are lucky enough just to even see one space shuttle, and here we have two in one shot.
