The Sense of Awe...

Israel is a country that lives under permanent risks and danger. Both external political tumult and internal national problems expose Israel's existence to the enigma of survival.  Nevertheless, we experience the sense of awe as far as Israel's daily accomplishments in science, technology and other achievements are concerned.  Is this 'survival mode' a motivation for innovative discoveries?  Lets take a look at one of the latest findings:

A solar window that generates power

Pythagoras Solar unveiled the world's first transparent photovoltaic glass unit (PVGU) designed to be easily integrated into conventional buildings. CEO Gonen Fink tells ISRAEL21c: "There are many companies today doing energy-efficient windows or energy generators using photovoltaic such as skylights, but this ... is the first time
somebody has actually combined the advantages in one product." In June, the Pythagoras Solar window won the prestigious GE Ecomagination Challenge, which recognizes the most promising innovations for capturing, managing and using energy in buildings.

Let’s not loose our sense of awe when we look at our beloved Israel and its accomplishments in only 63 years of existence as a modern state.
