Ashley Yeager is the associate news editor at Science News. She is fascinated by the stars and the stuff between them — so much so that she once worked at one of the world’s largest telescopes and more recently wrote a book about astronomer Vera Rubin. Ashley has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and a master’s degree in science writing from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She enjoys hiking with her dogs, swimming and reading.
