Inside the Endeavour somewhere is a personal handwritten note written by the shuttle commander Mark Kelly her husband.

Then Giffords said, “good things, good things,” said advisor to the Congressman.
Kelly took his wedding ring in the space, which has in previous flights. But this time he wanted something in return: his ring to stay on Earth. She had around her neck a silver chain from a jewelry store in Arizona that includes a heart and a map of Arizona.
“Socorro was his greatest feeling,” Pia Carusone chief of staff told a press conference after the launch. “She was very proud. He is always proud of Mark.
“There were hugs around,” said Carusone. “It was great celebration among the families.”
After takeoff, Scott Kelly gave identical twin red tulips to Giffords and a red rose to two daughters of his brother.
No photos. The families of the astronauts to take off in private.
This is the last shuttle flight with winds from the NASA shuttle program for 30 years. During the 14-day mission, Giffords will offer two tracks clock dedicated to Kelly and he will talk to him in a videoconference from Houston. She returned to Houston after 8:56 hours up to return to the rehabilitation center where he is staying.
