    If the shuttle is an autobot its more than likely Omega Supreme, not Astrotrain....

    The only way that it would make sence for Astrotrain, since he is a Decepticon, would be the villian ??Shockwave?? having to be taken down with an allegiance from both factions....he may have an army of Quints( I remember some concepts a while back) or even Unicron(doubtful)....

    Since when is it that the Movieverse Autobots can't fly? We only saw them flying to Earth.

    Didn't Simmons say he always wanted to be an astronaut in ROTF, or am I just remembering wrong?

    Yes yes, he did. :) 
    I wonder, now that he's a millionaire... He tries to buy NASA :D 
    On a serious note, I think Simmons finally got his childhood dream come true.

    Were they really flying to Earth? It was more like the were falling to Earth. Does space travel count as flying?

    nearly forgot about that

    now that would be the way for Simmons to go out if they decided to kill him; Simmons on the Moon with the Autobots & Decepticons in full war mode battle with Simmons sacrificing himself in order to save the Earth ala Harry Stamper in "Armageddon"

    If the Space Shuttle is a Transformer, I'd bet Silverbolt, and the other rockets, if they're ALSO Transformers, could be the Aerialbots. But probably it's just a single TF.

    Wow... Bay's got it good to get the Discovery. Epic.

    If it's a bot, I'd vote for SKylynx, and have him voiced by Kelsey Grammer or David Hyde Pierce in their Frazier voices.

    Well, this confirms that there's going to be a Space Shuttle toy. Wether or not the Space Shuttle is actually IN the movie as a transformer still remains unconfirmed, but Hasbro's track record with the movie toylines has several toys who only sorta-appeared in the movie (I.E. Landmine/S7 buggy, Stratosphere/the cargo plane Optimus jumps out of, etc.)

    Huh. I read that Discovery was supposed to launch in November. I also read Endeavor is launching in February - is that wrong too?

    Well, back on topic, good to see they're filming a shuttle launch themselves rather than using stock footage. Plus, ever since I saw Atlantis launch mission STS-132 and took a tour of KSC this summer, this news became all the more awesome.

    This means we'll see some Baysplosions...IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE! :D

    Space travel. Flying. Same difference. they weren't driving. in any case, I would say that they were traveling under their own power- complete with burning up debris long before they hit the atmosphere.

    Besides, the first Bayverse prequel comic established that these guys can "fly" or travel thru space. At the very least, Bumblebee.
