Great Scientists

Tycho Brahe

1546 - 1601

Tycho Brahe was a Danish astronomer, whose meticulous observations and ideas about the nature of planets, stars and comets, although erroneously accommodating rather than directly challenging the long-standing Aristotelian and Ptolemaic versions of the heavens, they were nevertheless an important contribution to the coming scientific revolution, and specifically enabled his assistant, Johannes Keppler, to derive his breakthrough laws of planetary motion.
