Centuries have passed since the Golden Age of Islamic astronomy (800- 1300 AD) and Dr. Yassin Mleaky, president of the new institute, is faced with the challenge to build upon this glorious past. His plan is to establish a robotic network of 13 telescopes spanning the globe, solely for the observation of the moon; this can only be achieved in collaboration with highly regarded observatories, as well as international acclaimed scientists, designers, and engineers. A journey to the stars follows this exhilarating development from the early stages.
