Manel’s husband, Attaf, was very emotional in the ceremony
Technion President, Prof. Peretz Lavi, presented his wonderful photographs of flocks of starlings, and also explained the mathematical-physical significance of the flock behavior and the synchronized turning – everybody was fascinated!
Prof. Neri Laufer (who until a year ago headed the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospitals) also had everybody fascinated and showed how the world leader on fertility also takes photographs on a high level – what a combination!!
