Rep. Giffords Recovery Milestone: Shuttle Launch

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will be in Florida Friday to watch the final launch of the space shuttle Endeavor. Her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, is commanding the mission. Giffords hasn't spoken publicly since Jan. 8 when a gunman shot her in the head at a constituent event. Jaimee Rose, of The Arizona Republic, tells Steve Inskeep why doctors think a trip away from the Houston rehabilitation center is good for her recovery.
