Commander Mark Kelly used this joystick control to land Endeavour’s final mission in May of 2011. He had flown once previously as Endeavour’s Pilot and twice as Pilot and then Commander of Discovery. That final mission came just four months after the attempted assassination of his wife Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
