Cmdr. Mark Kelly From Space: Gabby Wants To Get Home To Tucson and "That's Coming Soon"

Posted By on Mon, May 30, 2011 at 11:24 AM

The crew of the Endeavour space shuttle is on the way home. This morning, Cmdr. Mark Kelly picked Calexico's "Slowness" as a wake-up call to honor his wife, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and her hometown, Tucson.

Kelly tells mission control in Houston that Gabby “really wants to get back there and is really looking forward to that, so it’s an appropriate song. That’s coming soon."
