Sarah Scoles 6/7/24

Sarah Scoles is a Colorado-based, award-winning science journalist. She has made significant contributions at Scientific American and Undark. Sarah's articles have been published at outlets which include the New York Times, Wired, Popular Science, and the Washington Post, among others.

She is the author of the nonfiction books Making Contact: Jill Tarter and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence and They Are Already Here: UFO Culture and Why We See Saucers. Her new book, Countdown: The Blinding Future of Nuclear Weapons, is a riveting investigation into the nuclear weapons landscape.

"In previous lives," as Sarah describes it, she was an associate editor at Astronomy and a public education officer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia. When not making sentences or recording conversations with those she interviews, Sarah enjoys reading books she doesn't write and running weirdly long distances through the wilderness.
