In case you were skeptical of the progress made by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords at the Texas Medical Center's TIRR rehab clinic, long-distance video showed her climbing the stairs to board the jet that's taking her to watch her husband's shuttle launch.

The shuttle is scheduled for liftoff Friday afternoon.
