There's new video — shot from quite far away — from Houston's KTRK-TV of what the station says is Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) walking up the steps of a small passenger jet this morning for a flight to Florida.

KHOU-TV in Houston reports that Giffords was "guided by a second person" as she boarded.

She's headed to Friday's launch of the space shuttle Endeavour. Giffords' husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, is the mission's commander.

This is the first public glimpse of the congresswoman since Jan. 8, when she and 18 other people were shot outside a Tucson strip mall. Six people died.
