      Israeli nuclear physicist and politician (b. May 14, 1925, Tel Aviv, British Palestine—d. April 26, 2006, Tel Aviv, Israel), was at the centre of Israel's space program as the founder (1983) and chairman of the Israel Space Agency and as a leader in the country's nuclear program. Ne'eman studied engineering at the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, and Imperial College, London, and was an officer in the Israel Defense Force for 12 years. He was a member (1952–61) of Israel's Nuclear Energy Commission and was scientific director (1961–63) of the Nahal Soreq nuclear reactor. In 1965 he founded Tel Aviv University's School of Physics and Astronomy, which he directed until 1972; he also served as the university's president (1971–75). Ne'eman was a founder (1979) of the right-wing Tehiya party and represented that party in the Knesset (parliament) for three terms (1982–92). He served as Israel's first minister of science and development (1982–84) and held the post again in 1990–92. Ne'eman also made important contributions to quark theory. He was awarded the Israel Prize for his scientific work in 1969.
