Professor Yuval Neeman, Deputy Rector of the University and head of the physics. department, said that a space laboratory will be constructed for his department. He also noted that a cooperative program had been arranged between the physics department and the staff of the atomic reactor at Nahal Sorek in which the atomic scientists have agreed to lecture at the University.
