NASA Commander Mark Kelly took much more than a 10-second countdown to think over the big decision to go on his fourth space mission -- sending him thousands of miles away from his wife, Gabrielle Giffords, recovering on Earth.
KELLY: “I started to think about STS-134, about the mission, my crew, the fact that I’ve been training for it for nearly a year and a half. And considering a bunch of other factors... I ultimately made the decision that I would like to return and command STS-134.” (Video source: ABC)
After being shot in the head in early January, Representative Giffords’ recovery has rocketed forward. Kelly set aside his helmet to be at his wife’s side since the shooting, so some wonder if his decision to take off will send his wife’s recovery backwards.(Video source: ABC)
But a professor of neurosurgery tells ABC -- not necessarily.
DR. GEOFFREY MANLEY: “While it would be important for him to be there, at her bedside, and to be there as part of her rehabilitation, he’s really just one part of the equation of her recovery.”
Lee Woodruff, wife of ABC reporter Bob Woodruff -- who suffered a traumatic brain injury in Iraq -- tells USA Today, moving on with life is what’s best.
WOODRUFF: “I'll bet she (Rep. Giffords) would kill him if he didn't do it. And Bob would have killed me if I didn't do something that followed my heart. You don't ever want to be the one who held someone back.”
And CBS reports, Kelly’s chances for space flight are limited.
“NASA is likely scrapping the shuttle program, so this would be Kelly’s last chance to orbit the earth.”
Kelly is set to lead the mission on April 19 and will be gone for nearly two weeks. Giffords is expected to be at the launch.

After 19 years of space travel, Friday marked what was supposed to be the Endeavour shuttle’s last launch. But even with several hundred thousand eyes watching... the vessel never took off. Here’s FOX News with the story.
“Final launch of space shuttle Endeavour... did not happen as planned today. Instead of rocketing through space, Endeavor sits on the launch pad tonight at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida... forced to postpone after some sort of mechanical problems with the shuttle. The word came down just hours before the six-man crew was supposed to lift off...”
And heater delays are to blame for the stall. MSNBC’s Tom Costello explains how NASA is troubleshooting:
“The trouble is these heaters on the auxiliary power units are critical, because it keeps the hydraulic of fluid inside the power units from freezing up. And they need that power line, the hydraulic power line, to steer critical functions. They help control the nozzle for the engines, they help control wing flaps, also the brakes. So for both ascent and descent, they’ve gotta have these power units working properly.”
For the hundreds of thousands of fans that showed up, the scrub left them quote- “bummed.” That’s what one of the most famous attendees, Representative Gabrielle Giffords, tweeted on Friday.
She was there to support her husband, shuttle Commander Mark Kelly. The launch would have marked her first public appearance since an assassination attempt in January left her hospitalized. The Sydney Morning Herald reports:
Ms. Giffords's presence had lent an emotional grace note to preparations for Endeavour's launch and even overshadowed the planned visit of President Barack Obama and the first family.”
President Obama’s planned trip would have made him only the 3rd sitting president to watch a live shuttle launch. CNN explains, when it comes to NASA policy, safety comes before celebrity.
“NASA has always said -- Look, we are not launching unless the vehicle is safe and ready. That has been the mantra. Certainly since Challenger, certainly since the Columbia accident. So it doesn’t matter who is here -- the vehicle is not going if there are issues.”
Crews continue to work on the shuttle through the weekend, and hope for a launch early next week.
