Under a dimming sky, space shuttle Atlantis, atop a Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, or SCA, is framed between two Shuttle Training Aircraft on the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The SCA is a modified Boeing 747 jetliner. The SCA and Atlantis are being towed the mate/demate device (at far right) on the Shuttle Landing Facility where Atlantis will be lifted from the SCA and placed on the ground. Atlantis returned from California atop the SCA after its May 24 landing at Edwards Air Force Base, concluding mission STS-125. The ferry flight from Edwards Air Force Base began June 1. Atlantis' next assignment is the STS-129 mission, targeted to launch in November 2009. Photo credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller
