Zionist Craftiness Acknowledged
Scientific American has announced the winners of this years’ SciAm 50, the magazine’s annual award celebrating “visionaries from the worlds of research, industry and politics whose recent accomplishments point toward a brighter technological future for everyone” (hat tip: Scott).
This year’s award winners includes 3 professors from Tel Aviv University: Itay Baruchi and Eshel Ben-Jacob for replicating the formation of memories via neurons attached to a computer chip, and Beka Solomon for research in treating Alzheimer’s. You can read more about their exploits here.
Surprisingly enough, no palestinians made the list despite advancements in the field of homemade projectiles.
