STS-125 crew members head for the Astrovan outside the Operations and Checkout Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Astrovan will take them to Launch Pad 39A for liftoff of space shuttle Atlantis on the STS-125 mission to service NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. From left are Mission Specialists Michael Good, John Grunsfeld, Megan McArthur, Mike Massimino and Andrew Feustel, Pilot Gregory C. Johnson and Commander Scott Altman. Atlantis' 11-day flight will include five spacewalks to refurbish and upgrade the telescope with state-of-the-art science instruments that will expand Hubble's capabilities and extend its operational lifespan through at least 2014. The payload includes a Wide Field Camera 3, fine guidance sensor and the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph. Launch of Atlantis is scheduled for 2:01 p.m. May 11 EDT. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
