Talk Title: My life with Nature Magazine

View this talk on YouTube

Abstract:  In mid-July 1993 I flew to London to start my new job as the astronomy editor of Nature. I spent almost six months in London, then relocated to the Washington DC office, where I have been for the past 27 years. I am also a senior visiting research scientist in the department of astronomy at the University of Maryland. I will talk about some of the highlights of my time at Nature, which include handling papers that won Nobel Prizes in 2019 and 2020. Feel free to ask me about some of the lowlights.

Leslie Sage grew up in Burlington Ontario (where he once played a hockey game against Wayne Gretzky!) He obtained his PhD in 1987 from Stony Brook University. He performed radio astronomy research at New Mexico Tech / NRAO and the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy. He has been the astronomy editor for NATURE since 1993, a columnist for the RASC Journal since 1997 and the Press Officer for CASCA since 2010.
