This page will be dedicated to all Lebanese who are professional & leading physicists, astronomers, & scientists related to astronomy & space exploration.
Many Lebanese, whether born in Lebanon or of Lebanese roots, have reached highly acclaimed positions at well-respected institutions like NASA.
I plan to introduce the world to these Lebanese that raise the name of Lebanon & reflect the potential of many who remain in Lebanon limited by society, lack of support & an unhealthy environment for science & specially astronomy & physics.
I shall often call these by "Lebanese Pioneers".
World ... meet the "Lebanese Pioneers"
Lebanese Pioneers @ NASA & others
