methods were created many millennia ago,many of which still offer rare insightswhen developing new technologies.
In this current case, the successes ofancient metallurgists became key in developing an improved cost-effective replicated gold-based infrared reflector. Theancient Greeks and Persians were notmerely scientific theoreticians; a multitudeof discoveries were transformed into practical applications.
