    From his home office on Allen Street, local aerospace engineer Jake Freeman designs the instruments for life science experiments in outer space. In his work for BioServe, Freeman, a Yellow Springs High School graduate, has contributed to experiments that have led to new antibiotics and vaccines and added to an understanding of plant and animal behavior.
