ISS Cmdr. Scott Kelly to speak to media Tuesday

U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly, the commander of the space station and brother-in-law to wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, will talk to ABC News and KRTK-Houston Tuesday.

You can watch the 20-minute interview on NASA Television, starting at 7:50 a.m.

Over the weekend, Kelly tweeted from the International Space Station: "I've received many inquiries about how I am dealing with this tragedy. I appreciate your concern and I can assure you I am fine."

Giffords' husband and Scott Kelly's twin, astronaut Mark Kelly, meanwhile, will be featured in an interview with ABC anchor Diane Sawyer Tuesday. The interview will be a special “20/20″ at 10 p.m. Tuesday on WFTV-Channel 9.

The program will be called "The Congresswoman and the Astronaut: An American Story of Love and Strength." ABC News said portions of the interview, taped Saturday, will air earlier Tuesday on "Good Morning America" and "ABC World News."

Mark Kelly is the commander of space shuttle Endeavour's next mission, targeting an April 19 launch. NASA has, however, named a backup commander in case Kelly has to pull out of the mission.
