The Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilisation (FSTC), in partnership with 1001 Inventions, announces that 2011 will be The Year of Ibn Al-Haytham - Celebrating a Millennium of Science. A series of high profile international events and activities are being planned to pay tribute to Ibn Al-Haytham and his contributions to science.
According to historical accounts, in the year 1011, Ibn Al-Haytham was retained under house arrest. It is during this period that Ibn al-Haytham composed his most original scientific achievements that represented a turning point in the history of science.
