Sarah Reeves is a science curator at MAAS, and is the curator of the Museum’s new exhibition Apollo 11, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Moon Landing. She holds a PhD in astronomy and for her thesis studied how galaxies grow and evolve over cosmic time. Sarah has also been an astronomy guide at the Observatory since 2014, where she loves sharing her passion and knowledge of the sky with our visitors.
