Loren Grush is a science reporter for The Verge, the technology and culture brand from Vox Media, where she specializes in all things space — from distant stars and planets to human space flight and the commercial space race. The daughter of two NASA engineers, she grew up surrounded by space shuttles and rocket scientists—literally. She is also the host of Space Craft, an original online video series that examines what it takes to send people to space. Before joining The Verge, Loren published stories in Popular Science, The New York Times, Nautilus Magazine, Digital Trends, Fox News, and ABC News.


Book Release: Spring 2023

“After a 12-house auction, which happened over the course of a week, Scribner’s Rick Horgan won North American rights to Loren Grush’s The Six. Susan Canavan at Waxman Literary Agency, who represented Grush, likened the narrative nonfiction book to bestsellers like Code Girls and Hidden Figures. It follows, Canavan said, “the six women chosen from 8,000 applicants to be America’s first female astronauts, and the challenges they faced in their quest to fly on the space shuttle.” The author is a senior reporter at Verge and the daughter of NASA engineers. The deal also included a young readers edition, which Justin Chanda and Kendra Levin acquired for Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. The Six is tentatively scheduled for spring 2023.” See Press Release »
