Astronaut Mark Kelly, husband of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, is going to be in the international spotlight when he pilots the space shuttle Endeavour, scheduled to launch next Friday.

Kelly tells Katie Couric that Giffords wants to get back to Tucson and back to the job:


A week from today, Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is scheduled to be there when her husband, Mark Kelly, launches into space aboard the Endeavour Space Shuttle.

Giffords is recovering after being shot in the head in January.

Kelly talked to "CBS Evening News" anchor Katie Couric about what his wife wants, going forward.

Kelly told Couric, "One thing she frequently comes back to is, you know, going back to work. Going back to her office. And - you know, how important it is for her to serve her constituents. She talks about that all the time. Going back to Tucson. I mean, she wants to get back to Tucson. She wants to get back to her district. She wants to get back to Washington."
