The first family will be at next week's launch for the shuttle Endeavour- the first time an entire presidential family has attended a launch.

Endeavour will be commanded by Mark Kelly, the husband of Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords, who was wounded in last January's Tucson shooting.

Giffords will also be at the launch, although she will be in a private area. This will be NASA's next-to-last shuttle flight before the fleet is retired.
