    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. Here Freeman tinkers with a container used in testing the behavior of Monarch buttlerflies in space. (Photo by Megan Bachman)
