Gabrielle Giffords on Endeavour Shuttle Launch: ‘Good Stuff’
What was Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ reaction to the Endeavour launch Monday? “Good stuff,” she said after liftoff at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, is leading the shuttle’s final mission; she gave him a handwritten note before the launch, which he will read in space. She watched from a wheelchair in private, with a group including her mother, her chief of staff, and her nurse. Kelly’s twin brother, Scott, then gave her a bouquet of red tulips.
