Sarah is a global spokesperson on space exploration and a passionate advocate for the emerging private space industry.

She can also be heard on various radio stations in the UK and US, writes about space for a range of high profile outlets and has worked on movies about our exploration of the stars.
Away from the media, Sarah works to present the case for space on an international level. Working with world leaders, global CEOs, companies and organisations such as NASA, ESA, Google and Twitter as well as start-ups in the space sector.
While she can’t yet head to space, Sarah continues to explore her favourite planet, Earth. More at home on an aeroplane, than anywhere else, she has written, reported from and explored some of the far-flung and obscure corners of our home planet, including; North Korea, Tibet, Rwanda, Ukraine, Moldova and Transnistria, to name but a few.
In 2019, she wrote The Space Race, also published by DK, which led to Sarah’s own moment in Astronautic history when The Space Race became the first British children’s book to enter the atmosphere (watch the video below for more details).
Sarah’s newest book, and her first non-fiction title is Look Up: Our Story with the Stars, an inspirational and enlightening introduction to the importance of space to everyone, and why we should all learn to Look Up! It published in September 2020, by HQ, a division of HarperCollins.
‘Sarah Cruddas is a gifted writer and Look Up is an inspired book. I am hopeful that we will never stop looking up.’ Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins
