Mark Kelly Back in Command of STS-134

Hey Space Placers,

NASA announced last Friday that Mark Kelly, husband of Rep. Gabby Giffords,  had decided to return to command STS-134. Giffords is undergoing intensive therapy for her head wound suffered when shot in Tucson a month ago today. Kelly stated that his family was behind his decision and he was sure that Giffords would be at the Cape in April to see his launch.

This is good news for all of us as it means that Gabby is doing well enough for her husband to get back to work. I look forward to seeing her at the VIP section on launch day.
