The Associated Press writer Christopher Torchia published on 25 August 2010 an elogious paper "1001 Inventions: Science in Muslim lands" about the opening of "1001 Inventions" exhibition in Istanbul earlier this month. The article was reproduced by several newspapers around the world; it recalls the aim of the exhibition and how it is intended to highlight the overshadowed period of history, a "Golden Age" in which advances in science, medicine, technology and architecture laid groundwork for Western progress from the Renaissance until modern times.
