The orbital dynamics used in successful space missions, the Global Positioning System, and other modern applications owe their existence to Kepler’s discovery. Similar successes in mathematical modelling today may reveal hidden connections between fundamental forces such as gravity and electromagnetism (even anti-gravity or warp drives might result), reproduce useful aspects of human intelligence on computers, […]

So planets travel around the Sun in elliptical orbits with the Sun at one focus – Ok, a line from the planet to the Sun sweeps out equal areas in equal times, Gotcha and the square of a planet’s period in years and its distance cubed are proportional. Okey Dokey! But what does it all mean?

Find out what connects Kepler’s solids with hedgehogs, discover what some people think Kepler can bring to the world over 400 years after his death and find out about Kepler’s namesake, the name-pinching so-called Kepler Mission – that NASA’s mission to uncover other habitable planets in the Universe. That’s right, here are a collection of […]
