    Tiny Israel A Giant In Scientific Research :clap2:

    Israel's contribution to the world of scientific research has won it a growing number of accolades, with the Jewish state turning out an impressive number of achievements relative to its size.
    Israeli professor Dan Shechter became the tenth Israeli to become a Nobel laureate when he won the prize for chemistry for his discovery of quasicrystals, which overturned scientific theory on the nature of solids.

    "It's a paradigm shift in chemistry. His findings have rewritten the first chapter of textbooks of ordered matter," said Sven Lidin, a member of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry.

    Shechtman's win was hailed by Israel's leaders as proof of the country's rich tradition of academic research.
