Partikelacceleratorer for fred

SESAME-new-roof

Synchrotron-Light for Experimental Science and Applications, forkortet SESAME, er en ny synkrotron som er blevet opført i Jordan. Acceleratoren er blevet til efter inspiration fra CERN og bliver støttet af UNESCO. Bag Sesame-samarbejdet står ud over Jordan også Iran, Pakistan, Israel, Tyrkiet, Cypern, Egypten, de palæstinensiske selvstyreområder og Bahrain. Især er det tankevækkende, at Iran og Israel er del af samme konsortium.

Konsortiet bag synkrotronen skriver:

SESAME will be a widely-available ‘user facility‘. Scientists, including graduate students, from universities and research institutes will typically visit the Centre for a week or two, twice or three times a year, to carry out experiments, frequently in collaboration with scientists from other centres/countries, and then return home to analyze the data they have obtained. In other words, SESAME will not be a source of brain drain; quite the contrary, not only will the scientists who visit SESAME bring back scientific expertise and knowledge, which they will share with their colleagues and students, but it will also create a motivating scientific environment that will encourage the region’s best scientists and technologists to stay in the region or to return if they have moved elsewhere.

Det er interessant og tankevækkende at netop naturvidenskabelig forskning kan bringe disse lande sammen. Men underligt er det ikke; naturvidenskabens sprog er fælles for os alle og måske er der i virkeligheden her et stort potentiale for en fælles strategi for at komme ud over konflikterne.
