Husband of Congresswoman Will Lead Shuttle Mission

Gabrielle Giffords' husband will continue training for his space mission in April while his wife recovers from a shot to the head, BBC reported Friday.

Mark Kelly trained as the Endeavor's commander, but took time off after the Tucson, Ariz. shooting to care for his wife, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Kelly said his wife's condition continues to improve and she undergoes rehabilitation therapy in Houston.

After preparing for over 18 months, Kelly felt ready to carry out the two-week space station delivery mission which will take place in April, the Boston Herald reported.
