Endeavour on track to Pad 39B

On April 17th at 12:01am EDT Endeavour will be on track to launch Pad 39B in the unlikely event a rescue mission is needed during Atlantis' STS-125 flight to upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope. After Atlantis is cleared to land, Endeavour will move to Launch Pad 39A in late May for its upcoming STS-127 mission to the International Space Station.

After tomorrow we will have a Space Shuttle at each launch pad! Cool!

Why does Endeavour have to move from 39B to 39A? Couldn't it just launch from there? Just wondering.
