In astronomy communication we often use the word astronomy as a blanket term tocover anything that has to do with space, i.e. astrophysics, space exploration, spacesciences, human space ight, Earth observation, astrobiology, amateur astronomy andall related sciences and technologies. And if there is a single astronomy project thattouches on all of these, that project is the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.Hubble has been an astronomical powerhouse for the last two decades. Its discoverieshave captured the imaginations of scientists and citizens alike, and have regularly thrustHubble into the limelight. Hubble images are appreciated for their aesthetic appeal aswell as for their illustrative power: they convey the beauty of the Universe, even to thosewho are too young to understand their context or implications.In May this year, tuning in across the whole media spectrum, including television, blogs,newspapers, magazines, tweets and Facebook, the world followed the smooth, preciseand professional movements of the astronauts as they carried out a awless servicingmission. The Hubble Servicing Mission 4 (SM4) brought Hubble back to full perform-ance level and we are all eagerly waiting to hear about the latest discoveries to comeout of the revived Hubble.In this issue, Ray Villard, a veteran communicator at the Space Telescope Science Insti-tute describes his excitement at communicating SM4 in an innovative way: as a series ofwebcast programmes that take us behind the scenes of the technologically demandingand challenging Hubble Space Telescope repair mission. Also in this issue, Tijana Prodanovic gives us ten golden rules to enhance presenta-tions; our regular contributor, Matthew McCool, guides us through the jungle of freeastronomy software available and Henri Bofn and Diane Scherzler share their feelingsabout the love-hate relationship between astronomers and the media.Between issues you can stay in touch through our website, www.capjournal.org, whereyou will nd the current issues in PDF format, an astronomy communication and educa-tion job bank, submission guidelines and back issues.We also welcome astronomy and science communication events (conferences, meet-ings, etc.), training opportunities, job postings or courses offered. If you have astronomyand science communication-themed products such as books, DVDs, television pro-grammes, magazines or websites that you would like to see reviewed by the CAPjournaleditorial team, simply send the necessary information to: editor@capjournal.org. This isalso where to send any questions, comments or opinions.Happy reading,Pedro Russo
