al-Hassan Ibn al-Haytham (Alhazen) was born in Iraq in the year 965 AD, he is regarded as the father of the modern scientific method. Though it is often claimed that the modern scientific method was not established until the early 17th Century by Francis Bacon and Rene Descartes. There is no doubt, however, that Ibn al-Haytham arrived there first. In fact, it was due to his emphasis on experimental data and reproducibility of results, he is often referred to as the “world’s first true scientist”. His contributions to modern optics, light, planetary motions and other sciences have enriched our modern world in many ways.
