  • The Lidow Physics Complex,  Technion Physics Department, and his great founding fathers, welcome the plaque in memory of Jean Zeitoun

 

The Endowment Fund Jean Zeitoun, in 2021, supported Technion in Haïfa, and provided a scholarship to a student in master of Physics. In 2022 we discover the plaque in memory of Jean on the Technion campus.

The Lidow Physics Complex is located on the Technion Campus on beautiful hills in the middle of pink and purple bougainvillea. In front of the “art deco style” building, two olive trees, one of the Jean’s favorite trees.

On the walls of the lobby, we discover a Nathan ROSEN photography as the founder of the Physics Technion Department in 1953.

Actually  if Albert EINSTEIN is one of the famous Technion founding fathers in 1924, it’s Nathan ROSEN[1], who took the initiative to create the Physics Departement in 1953. 

Nathan ROSEN was a world renowned astrophysicist for his discoveries in quantum physics. At the age of 22, he published an article in which he predicted the existence of the neutron. He contributes, with Einstein, to the formulation of the famous “EPR Paradox – Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen”.

But ROSEN it’s also the « Einstein-Rosen bridge » who popularised the notion of “wormhole”.

By a strange coïncidence, Jean Zeitoun, spent hours in the last months of his life to teaching several astrophysical notions to his neophyte friends and specifically the EPR paradoxe, very mysterious for them.

Beautiful location and a very moving moment.

  • A happy confluence...

 

On this day we discover, just in front of Jean’s plaque in the lobby, the Einstein famous photography when he is sticking out his tongue. It’s a painting reproduction of the photo by the artist Dana Keren. Jean would have been delighted with this humoristic coincidence. For Jean, Albert Einstein was one of the most important characters in his personal Pantheon.
