Giffords Takes Flight to Florida

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords boarded a NASA jet to fly to Florida on Wednesday to watch the final launch of the shuttle Endeavour, which her husband is supposed to command. Video shows that Giffords walked up the plane’s stairs herself, though another person assisted. Her husband, Mark Kelly, is already at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, preparing for the launch. Giffords has been receiving treatment following a gunshot wound to the head.
