In keeping with the theme of geometry and measurements, we now explore an influential person on a character we will study later, that person being specifically in this context, Johannes Kepler. A name which may be familiar to some, and to others, not so much. This individual goes by the name Tycho Brahe.
Who Was Tycho Brahe?
In short he was a Danish astronomer and alchemist who also happened to become the foremost astronomer in Europe, although he did not follow the Copernican principles, something which I will cover later on, he did believe the sun and moon orbited the earth and that the other planets orbited the sun, as you may well know, this was obviously favoured by the church. His detailed observations though, would be seen as no less than invaluable to Johannes Kepler. The figure for whom this short piece is but a palette cleanser.
