WASHINGTON – NASA announced a backup shuttle commander Thursday in case they need to replace the astronaut-husband of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was wounded in a mass shooting last weekend

While he has not made a decision, I find it interesting that NASA has already named his replacement if he does not fly. I do not blame him if he does not, but life must go on. What a better way to get away than to be in the ISS. But he could be a mission hazard if he does not focus on the task at hand. What is your thoughts? Should he fly or not?
