Orlando Sentinel: President Barack Obama plans to attend the April 29 launch of space shuttle Endeavour, adding even more star power to NASA’s second-to-last shuttle launch, according to a White House official.

The president will bring his wife, Michelle, and two daughters, Sasha and Malia, to the launch, now scheduled at 3:47 p.m. a week from Friday.

…Obama already plans to be in Florida that day for a commencement address at Miami Dade College…

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., severely wounded during an assassination attempt in January, also is planning to attend and watch her husband, Endeavour commander Mark Kelly, lead a crew of six into orbit. Supporters see the trip as a sign she is recovering from her gunshot wounds.
