She's in stable condition and will be likely be 'recovering' for the next couple of years. I don't think it is a reasonable expectation for him to be off his job until she's recovered.

I can also understand that his job involves missions that take months to prepare for. While they have backup plans in place to 'cover' for his absence, it is probably best for the shuttle mission for him to be on the flight.

Why not? Not like he can do much for her here.

Really? How long ago was she shot? How long has he known he was supposed to go on this flight? Seems like quite a lot of time to me to come to this decision. He's probably been debating it since the shooting. Just because you didn't know he was supposed to go doesn't mean he didn't know.

I know she is alive, but this reminds me of when people say the following about the relatives they have survived: "She would have wanted him to." I think that applies here.

This will be the last shuttle for a while, if ever... she is stable, he should totally go! I would feel selfish if I was THAT needy. If this was some kind of business trip, some kind of annual conference, he should cancel it. But it isn't. This is history in the making!

That's entirely up to him.

This. I have absolutely no right to comment on the situation at all.
