About Tycho Brahe
Tycho Brahe was a Danish astronomer and astrologer whose many contributions to astronomy played instrumental roles in the scientific revolution. He was the last of the astronomers who worked without the use of telescopes since telescopes had not been invented by that time. Despite this, he was able to make some of the most accurate celestial observations of his generation.
He was the son of nobleman Otte Brahe and Beate Bille. He and Kirsten Barbara Jørgensdatter had eight children together. They remained together as a couple for almost three decades until his death in 1601.
He had an artificial nose after losing his real nose in a sword duel. In 1901 and in 2010, his body was exhumed by scientists in order to find the exact cause of his death.
