Jane Poynter

Jane Poynter has designed and built experiments that have been included in the International Space Station, and three more were on the ill-fated Columbia mission. Not only is she helping to develop life support systems for the space shuttle and for Navy deep-sea divers, but she is also working on an innovative project to feed the hungry in the poorest nations while sequestering carbon. She lives in Tucson, Arizona, and enjoys motorcycle racing for weekend relaxation.
