Editorial - The Sound of Silence

When Hubble was launched, 15 years ago, the Internet was in the beginning. During this time it grew into a web that unites us all and to all of us gives a voice. Now the same web that brings us the priceless images of The Telescope is the one that we use to give The Telescope a voice. Today Save the launches The HubbleCast. We wish Hubble, floating in the silence of space, could listen to us.
