Freeman was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and raised in Chicago, Illinois. As a child he was so interested in space that his mother thought of it as a phobia. He states, My mother says I started asking about space when I was two years old. I’d look at stars and talk about how if you went straight long enough you’d come back to where you started. When he was 10 years old he suffered from pneumonia.
