Source suggestions[edit]

OTRS received an email from Dr. Ben-Abraham at the Department of Physics at Ben-Gurion University [1] that I am posting here per his request.

His contact information is at the link above.--Chaser (talk) 01:16, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Location in 198x[edit]

The NPR article says he was at NIST in 1982, but his biography (http://materials.technion.ac.il/st/) says he was at Johns Hopkins at that time and at NIST a decade later. Zeev.tarantov (talk) 14:33, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Aerospace Research Laboratories??[edit]

In the lead paragraph, it says "Prof. Shechtman was an NRC fellow at the Aerospace Research Laboratories at Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio,... I can't find any other references to this lab. There is an Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson AFB (see related wikipedia article) 17:51, 5 October 2011 (UTC) ontomeister

The current organizational chart of the AFRL is from 1997. Before that, there existed the Wright Laboratory, part of which was the "Material Laboratory, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH". That sounds exactly like the kind of place where a materials science post doc would study high-tech aluminum alloys. The current organization has the "Materials and Manufacturing Directorate" which continues that work. Zeev.tarantov (talk) 12:26, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Interesting photo should be on here for historical value: Schechtman's notebook (credit Iowa State?)[edit]

See photo of his notebook at:

Is this doable? Aleacar (talk) 18:27, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

i found that the bbc article had errors,

Where is the early life section?[edit]

No mention about where he obtained his degrees -the story start with him after completing the PhD..--Gilisa (talk) 20:09, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Class=C, Chemistry template[edit]

I have upgraded this article to class=C, and added the Chemistry template, since he won the Nobel in Chemistry, not Physics. --DThomsen8 (talk) 00:05, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

My heartfelt congratulations to Dr. Shechtman, and after reading his personal info on him and his distinguished family, I was wondering what the conversation must be like at the family dinner table? :-) Ineuw talk page on English Wikisource 22:29, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
