This is the press viewing area at Kennedy Space Center. The famous count-down clock is still the time standard of choice at the far end of the lawn. To the right of the clock, 3 miles distant, you can see Launch Complex 39A with Atlantis on the pad ready to service the Hubble Space Telescope. To the left of the clock, also 3 miles distant (the closest you can be to the launch pad), you can see Launch Complex 39B with Endeavour ready to mount a rescue mission should anything go wrong with Atlantis. The three tall towers are lightning arrestors. Next to the press area is the giant Vehicle Assembly Building where the shuttle and boosters are put together.
