A Danish nobleman, Tycho Brahe made important contribution to astronomy. He devised his own instrument, even before the invention of the telescope, to observe the heavens. The instruments allowed Brahe to determine the movements of celestial objects and the motion of the solar system even more precisely. In particular, Brahe made significant contributions in the study of the moon and the planet Mars, which would later prove extremely useful to another astronomer, Johannes Kepler. Known to be an interesting character, Brahe’s theories were instrumental in the development of the studies on planetary motion and he even made significant contributions in the field of Mathematics. Of all the historical works, his works on Lunar theory and his works on Ptolemaic’s idea catapulted him to fame. He was even given the position of Imperial astronomer to Emperor Rudolph II, to whom he proposed the Rudolphine and Prutenic Tables a short while before his death.
