Recently, Dr. Yaron Finzi of the Science Center met with the Austrian space delegation, including researchers Sophie Gruber and Gronot Gromer of OWF, and Mitzpe Ramon Mayor Roni Marom, to discuss the possibility of launching a mission to simulate research on Mars in the Mitzpe Ramon vicinity. The Austrian delegation is considering whether to conduct their next simulation in Israel or Oman. Roni and Yaron emphasized the advantages of carrying out the next simulation in the Negev, south of Makhtesh Ramon.

The gathering denoting the 10th anniversary of the Science Center of the Dead Sea and the Arava was held at the southern venue of the Center, in Yotvata.

About 70 of the people working in the Center participated, researchers, PHD candidates, research assistants, students and management.

We visited the site of the oil leak in Evrona and heard about the monitoring program, and the follow-up studies and analyses.

In an impressive ceremony, the new Masada research facility of the Dead Sea Institute was opened on 22 November 2016.
