Let me know when the version without that little annoying narrator comes out. Why does he think we need to see him in the image?

Enjoy what Hubble shows because Elon Musk is in charge.

"The mercurial Musk responded to the debate on Twitter with contradictory messages, pledging to look into ways to reduce the satellites' reflectivity but also saying they would have "0% impact on advancements in astronomy" and that telescopes should be moved into space anyway."

Musk's statement was not contradictory
