SESAME

 

Few regions are more divided than the Middle East, so it's hard to imagine Israelis and Palestinians, Iranians and Pakistanis, Turks and Cypriots sitting side by side, co-operating on a joint project.

Yet that is just what has been happening at a laboratory outside Amman in Jordan, where enemies of old are working together to build a scientific experiment for the whole region.

Adam Hart-Davis reports from SESAME, where it's hoped the language of science will heal deep-rooted wounds.
