Kepler is one of the most admired astronomers who ever lived. In 1615, when Kepler was at the height of his career, his mother Katharina was accused of witchcraft in a Lutheran town in Germany (in-part due to Kepler himself claiming her to be a witch in his book the Somnium). The proceedings led to […]

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?

Kepler put our feet on the road to modern astronomy. But ask yourself: Why were the planets spaced as they were in order of distance from the Sun? Had God arranged the Universe in accordance with the perfect precepts of geometry? And could we discover a true cosmic harmony designed by the almighty for us, and others to discover?

Kepler was a brilliant thinker and a lucid writer, but he was a disaster as a classroom teacher. He mumbled. He digressed. He was at times utterly incomprehensible. He drew only a handful of students his first year at Graz; the next year there were none - Carl Sagan
A law explains a set of observations; a theory explains a set of laws. The quintessential illustration of this jump in level is the way in which Newton's theory of mechanics explained Kepler's law of planetary motion - John L Casti
It is important that in Kepler’s view the anima terrae is responsible for the weather and also for meteoric phenomena. Too much rain, for instance, is an illness of the earth - Wolfgang Pauli
Among the great men who have philosophized about the tides, the one who surprised me most is Kepler. He was a person of independent genius - Galileo Galilei
One wonders how many modern scientists faced by a similar situation in their work would fail to be impressed by such remarkable numerical coincidences - Fred Hoyle
Kepler was visited by a revelation that was to alter radically the future of astronomy - Carl Sagan
Kepler became interested in the action of the moon on the water, and in other occult phenomena, and similar childishness - Galileo Galilei
One of the first modern astronomers and last scientific astrologers - Carl Sagan
Fiercely competitive and prone to a certain amount of quarrelsomeness and violence - Albert Koestler
The first astrophysicist and the last scientific astrologer - Carl Sagan
the astrologer who killed astrology - Owen Gingerich

First to correctly explain planetary motion, becoming founder of celestial mechanics

First to correctly explain the first “natural laws”, which are universal, verifiable and precise
First to realize that the darkness of the night sky directly conflicts with the idea of an infinite universe filled with stars
First to formulate eyeglass designing for nearsightedness and farsightedness
First to describe: real, virtual, upright and inverted images and magnification
First to discover and describe the properties of total internal reflection

First to explain how a telescope works
Kepler's mother was a drug dealer, he spent the later years of his life defending his mother against charges of witchcraft which he had seeded with his "fictional" book the Somnium.
Kepler got kicked out of Austria for failing to convert to Roman Catholicism. This gave him the chance to get a job with Tyco Brahe in Prague.
Kepler was a terrible teacher, not a single student wanted to take his classes, but he continued providing lessons for a whole year with no students present.
Kepler was born into the lowest social class of Germany in 1571. Kepler was a sickly child, being extremely nearsighted, having skin problems and nearly dying of Smallpox when he was just four years old.
Kepler's extreme fear of taking a bath. It was his first wife who finally forced him into taking one, in 1605, 8 years into their marriage; Kepler thought it a very unpleasant experience.
Kepler's health problems made his calculations more difficult, as most were made while he was standing up, as he suffered from a severe case of hemorrhoids.
When it finally became clear that the church was wrong, Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileos’ works were all removed from the church’s “Index of Forbidden Books.”
Kepler spent two years "evaluating" eleven potential brides before eventually choosing one after his first wife had sadly died of cholera in 1611.
