The space shuttle Atlantis has blasted off on its most ambitious and dangerous mission yet to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. The mission is so hazardous that a second shuttle, Endeavour, is ready to launch should Atlantis get into difficulties and a rescue mission is required.

NASA's Assistant Auxilary Backup Support Rescue Manager, Duff Fuselage confirmed that they were taking no chances with this particular mission.

"This is so dangerous we require out of this world thinking when it comes to contingency plans." he intoned. "Should the Endevour rescue mission hit the rocks we have been been liaising with International Rescue, who would launch Thunderbird 3. As an additional precaution we have also been negotiating with Mr Bruce Willis to don a space suit once more and reprise his role in 'Armageddon', but hopefully this time without blowing himself up at the end."

We also understand the Rescue Rangers, the Whirlybirds and the A Team are all on standby.
