OK, Wow. Recovering Rep. Giffords ... Husband is the Mission Commander for the upcoming last flight of the space shuttle Discovery

Flight to be delayed at least until February due to cracks in the main fuel tank


A6E Pilot, Desert Storm combat veteran, test pilot, Astronaut. This will be his fourth Shuttle mission.

Wow. That's a heck of a family. I hope she recovers.. having suffered a traumatic brain injury (not at THAT level, but they're all bad), I know what they family will go through as she recovers. And what people never discuss is that the victim of a TBI is NEVER the 'same person'. It's frustrating, heartbreaking, but eventually you learn to deal with it.

Not only that -- but his TWIN is already on board the ISS.

I thought that was really incredible. One is a shuttle mission commander and the other is already on the ISS. Somewhere there are some REALLY proud and worried parents.

To tail onto that, someone noted that their friends and family have always been worried about his safety.

Hopefully she will be up and about and recovering with therapy and he'll be able to go to space and chat with her from 250 miles up.
