Gabrielle Giffords Husband: Astronaut Mark Kelly?

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was attacked today outside a Tucson, Arizona, grocery store where she was holding a campaign event.

Gabrielle Giffords, who is married to Mark Kelly, was talking to a couple outside a Safeway grocery store when the attacker ran up and opened fire indiscriminately.

The suspect reportedly ran off and was tackled by a bystander before being taken into custody.

Is it true that Gabrielle Giffords's husband Mark Kelly is an astronaut from NASA and is currently in the international space station?

Gabrielle Giffords' husband Mark Kelly said Gabrielle is still alive and currently in surgery. Mark was en route to Tucson from Houston, he is in charge of the last scheduled space shuttle mission.

Mark Kelly is a veteran of three space shuttle flights and he is scheduled to launch on the final mission of space shuttle Endeavour April 1. His brother Scott Kelly, also a NASA astronaut, is currently living aboard the International Space Station in space as commander of the Expedition 26 mission.

Gabby Giffords previously served in the Arizona legislature and State Senate and was CEO of El Campo Tire, her family's tire and automotive business.

Fortunately, one of the staffers tackled the gunman and people in the crowd detained the suspect. I hope Gabrielle Giffords gets better, I'm praying for her.
