Tycho Brahe

On October 24, 1601, Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe died at the age of 54. Born in Scania, then a part of Denmark, Brahe was well known during his lifetime as an astronomer and alchemist. He was one of the last major astronomers to work without using a telescope for his observations and his work was remarkably accurate for his time. His assistant, Johannes Kepler, would later use the data to derive the laws of planetary motion.
