Science is one of the fields in which humanity, as a whole, unites forces to crack Nature’s secrets. Scientific collaboration, thus, crosses cultures, religions and nations. Moreover, scientific collaboration is unconcerned with such differences, and builds upon mental and intellectual interactions alone. Thus, scientific collaboration, especially when successful, is an excellent tool for connecting people via mental relationships bridging over cultural, religion and national differences.
