Lol, my thoughts exactly.
If the neighbors think you're the rebel of the neighborhood, embrace it and be the rebel. It keeps them wondering what you'll do next...

NASA AND OPTIMUS PRIME COLLABORATE TO EDUCATE YOUTH

WASHINGTON -- NASA has developed a contest to raise students'
awareness of technology transfer efforts and how NASA technologies
contribute to our everyday lives.

NASA is collaborating with Hasbro using the correlation between the
popular TRANSFORMERS brand, featuring its leader Optimus Prime, and
spinoffs from NASA technologies created for aeronautics and space
missions that are used here on Earth. The goal is to help students
understand that NASA technology 'transforms' into things that are
used daily. These 'transformed' technologies include water purifiers,
medical imaging software, or fabric that protects against UV rays.

The Innovative Partnerships Program Office at NASA's Goddard Space
Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., in conjunction with NASA's Office of
Education, has designed a video contest for students from third to
eighth grade. Each student, or group of students, will submit a
three- to five-minute video on a selected NASA spinoff technology
listed in the 2009 Spinoff publication. Videos must demonstrate an
understanding of the NASA spinoff technology and the associated NASA
mission, as well as the commercial application and public benefit
associated with the "transformed" technology. Video entries are due
by December 31.

The videos will be posted on the NASA YouTube channel, and the public
will be responsible for the first round of judging. The top five
submissions from each of the two grade groups (third-fifth and
sixth-eighth) will advance for final judging. A NASA panel will
select a winning entry from each group, and the students will receive
a glass Optimus Prime Spinoff Award at the Space Foundation's
National Space Symposium in 2011. The innovators of the NASA
technology highlighted in the winning videos also will receive
trophies, along with their commercial partners.

Sounds like they will be filming out here at the pad on Wed. Will be rolling the crawler up and down the slope, plus RSS should be at park for the payload cansiter.

Hi guys, I'm working on this production. Yes, we will be filming scenes when the RSS is rotated back. Discovery and the autobots offer advise and assistance to each other in one scene.

?

So Discovery will be a hidden Transformer (a "seeker") like Jetfire was in the second movie?

I wonder how NASA was able to operate an orbiter for almost 30 years without knowing it was a giant alien robot.. :)

Guess we'll find out whether or to call Discovery a guy or a girl from now on.

Somebody clue Mr. Bay in that a female voice is required as all orbiters are female...

(same like boats and aircraft)

Welcome aboard.  You'll find this to be the best space site around - fewer trolls, more knowledge, opinions that are based in facts.

Anything you can contribute from your job to the discussion is appreciated.
If I like something on NSF, it's probably because I know it to be accurate.  Every once in a while, it's just something I agree with.  Facts generally receive the former.

Cool! You got most of that scene/preps for a scene. This is the latest view, nothing much.

Payload to the Pad and RSS retract delayed a day, so if that may hit filming if they need the RSS retracted.

I won't be happy until I see some autobots racing through the VAB with Endeavour making a surprise trip out of her OPF and riding on a turbo version of the OTS chasing after them.
