A statement from Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords on today's scrubbed launch:
Congresswoman Giffords is disappointed that Endeavour was unable to launch today, but realizes that mission safety must come first. Launch delays are not uncommon with the space shuttle. We are looking forward to the quick rescheduling of this scientifically important mission. The congresswoman was pleased, however, to have been able to meet with President Obama and the first family.
Her travel plans at this time are undetermined.
