Dedicated to the memory of my eldest brother Abraham Argov (1914-2003), whom I met for the first time in 1989 in Paris (see the picture above, he is on the left). In 1925 he emigrated with our great grand parents Globman (on our mother's side) from Ukraine to Palestine. Later he took part in the foundation and governing of the prominent kibbutz Beit-Hashita in the Yizreel Valley. As an officer, he took part in the War of Independence in 1948 (when his family name was changed to Hebrew, Argov). Abraham, together with my cousin Michal Govrin-Brezis, organized my first visit to Israel in 1990 and arranged my meeting with Prof. Yuval Ne'eman. Ne'eman, who soon became the Minister of Science, played an important role in the formation of the Israel Cosmic Ray and Space Weather Centre and the Emilio Segre' Observatory.
