Great Moments in Space
Gabrielle Giffords & Mark Kelly
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was nearly killed during a shooting spree in Tucson in January, is planning to watch her astronaut husband Mark Kelly blast off into space in the space shuttle Endeavour on Friday. Her recovery has been described as a miracle, though there are still many hurdles to overcome. Kelly is the commander of the mission heading into space, which is to be the second-to-last one for the space shuttle program.
