STUDYING TYCHO’S STARS: A VIEW OF THE HEAVENS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF TYCHO BRAHE

  • Kimberly Richardson

Abstract

During his life time, the famed 16th century astronomer Tycho Brahe made a convincing case for what came to be known as the Tychonic System. It was a picture of the heavens as he saw it from his observational complex Uraniborg. Yet despite the scientific prowess that marked everything Brahe did, the design of his system was powerfully influenced by a beliefs that had been in place since Ancient Greece.
