Israel joins CERN 'Big Bang' physics research center

GENEVA - Israel on Friday signed up to become the first Associate member of the CERN "Big Bang" particle physics research center probing the origins of the universe.
Under an agreement formalized at the 20-nation CERN's headquarters on the borders of France and Switzerland near Geneva, in just over two years' time Israel will almost certainly become the first non-European full member of the center, the European Organization for Nuclear Research."It is a vital part of our mission to build bridges between nations. This agreement enriches us scientifically and is an important step in that direction," CERN's Director General Rolf Heuer, a German physicist, told the signing ceremony.
