Israeli Astronaut’s Diary Found Near Palestine

Ilan Ramon, who was Israel’s first astronaut and was aboard the ill-fated space shuttle Columbia, took with him a diary. Though the shuttle disintegrated during re-entry, his diary survived the 37-mile fall to Earth.

As I was reading the story, I found it interesting that Ramon’s diary was found near Palestine. The only difference is that this Palestine is in Texas and nobody disputes its existence, but still, I found it a strange coincidence.

The diary will go on display tomorrow at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem — again, near Palestine (or, should I say, the area of land some refer to as Palestine).
