However, it appears the STS135 'occupants' have a tough enough time already ... not to disappear from their green-screened studio sets! :

To be sure, aliens have nothing to do with that 'shape-shifting' arm - it's just a bloody awful greenscreening glitch. (Actually, I suspect it is some more 'sophisticated' glitch than that. Whatever: it is no standard video artifact). Also, check out those preposterous shadows. They are not even standing there. They're not even at the Kennedy Space Center! Mon Dieu, je suis shocked !
The 4 actornauts all take turns to talk with the press - and each one turns around at some stage pointing towards the void. (Supposedly, their Spacecraft is being sloooowly dragged to the launch pad - somewhere behind their backs). Just check out the woman astronaught at 5:10 into the video. "Look how majestic it looks, rolling out to the launch pad! Look at that!" Look! Look! Look there!
Of course, the excruciatingly slow (and totally inane and senseless) roll-out procedure of those Space Shuttles (apparently, it takes 8 hours for them to be dragged to the launch pad from their hangars) is a psy-op in itself, inspired and scripted around Fritz Lang's 1929 movie "Frau im Mond". Why, in our day and age, it should take 8 hours to transfer ANY object for a few miles distance defies not only our belief - it is an outrageous offence to our intelligence.
