Tycho Brahe
Strange, but true! Tyco Brahe lived by the motto "Non viduri sed esse". Translated into English this statement reads, "Not to be seen but to be." Tyco Brahe, though of noble decent, married a commoner. Together they had three sons and five daughters. Brahe died in 1601. His last words, "Ne frusta vixisse vidar" (May I not seemed to have lived in vain") were recorded by his assistant Kepler. Within a few years of his death, the castle and observatory he built on his beloved island Hven were destroyed.

Tycho Brahe was given the name Tyge by his parents Beate Bille and Otte Brahe. He is now known as "Tycho" since that is the Latinised version of his name that he adopted when he was about fifteen years old. For simplicity we shall use the name Tycho throughout this biography. Otte Brahe, Tycho's father, was from the Danish nobility and was an important man among the Danish King's closest group of supporters. Beate Bille, Tycho's mother, also came from an important family which had produced leading churchmen and politicians. Tycho was one of twin sons, but his twin died shortly after birth. His parents had one older daughter but Tycho was their eldest son. Here is a picture of his birthplace A strange episode occurred when Tycho was two years old. His uncle, Jorgen Brahe (in Tycho's own words, see for example [5]):- ... without the knowledge of my parents took me away with him while I was in my earliest youth. It was a strange episode since it did not appear to cause any family disputes nor did his parents try to take him back. Jorgen Brahe and his wife Inger Oxe had no children of their own, and they acted as foster parents to Tycho until Jorgen's death. Jorgen Brahe, like his brother Otte Brahe, was a leading Danish noble while Inger Oxe was the sister of Peder Oxe who was a member of the Rigsraads, the governing council consisting of 20 advisors to the King. In fact Tycho benefited most on the educational side from his foster mother Inger Oxe who had scholarly interests as did other members of her family, while the Brahes and the Billes had little time for scholarly pursuits.

Tycho Brahe
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Tycho Brahe December 14 October 24 ) was a Danish astrologer astronomer , and alchemist . He had Uraniborg built, which became an early " research institute ". For purposes of publication , Tycho owned a printing press and paper mill . His best known assistant was Johannes Kepler Tycho realized that progress in the science of astronomy could be achieved not by occasional haphazard observations, but only by systematic and rigorous observation, night after night, and by using instruments of the highest accuracy obtainable. He was able to improve and enlarge the existing instruments, and construct entirely new ones. Brahe's naked eye measurements, of planetary parallax were accurate to the arcminute . (These measurements became the possessions of Kepler following Brahe's death.) While a student, Tycho lost part of his nose in a duel . This occurred in while the 20-year-old Tycho was studying at the University of Rostock in Germany . Attending a dance at a professor's house, he quarrelled with one Manderup Parsbjerg , a fellow member of the Danish gentry. A subsequent duel (in the dark) resulted in Tycho losing the bridge of his nose. For the rest of his life, he was said to have worn a

Tycho Brahe (1546-1601)
Tycho [Tyge] Brahe (1546-1601), probably the greatest pre-telescopic astronomer. Born on 14 December 1546 in Knudstrup (Denmark) and of noble descent, he was sent by his family to study in Copenhagen, then to Leipzig to study Law, but he soon became entirely occupied with astronomy. In 1565 and 1566 Tycho studied mathematics at the universities in Wittenburg and Rostock. It is in Rostock that Tycho engaged in a duel with a fellow student and nobleman, that ended up costing him part of his nose. Tycho's reputation as an accomplished astronomer rose quickly, primarily through his observations of and writings on the 1572 Novae in Cassiopea, and of the 1577 comet . Tycho demonstrated, perhaps more convincingly than anyone before him, the falsity of the Aristotelian doctrine of the immutability of the Heavens, and of the Aristotelian theory of comets as an atmospheric phenomenon taking place in the sublunar sphere. On May 23 1576, by royal decree the Danish King Frederick II granted Tycho the island of Hven, east of Copenhagen (now part of Sweden, but a Danish possession at the time), as well as an annual stipend to further Tycho's astronomical researches. Tycho took full advantage of his independence and financial security. He established on the island the Uraniborg Observatory. Throughout his career, and in particular at Uraniborg, Tycho proceeded to build astronomical

Tycho Brahe (1546 - 1601)
Tycho Brahe was perhaps the greatest observer of all time. He developed new instruments and new techniques for conducting observations. Kepler used his observations to derive his laws of planetary orbits . It was the precision of Brahe's observations that enabled Kepler to determine correctly that the orbits of the planets are ellipses with the Sun at one focus. Brahe observed a supernova and concluded that the stars themselves could change.

13. Tyge Brahe
Tycho Brahe Skånelands och Danmarks störste vetenskapsman. Men Tycho Brahefår ändå anses som vårt största skånsk-danska namn bland de lärda.
På svenska På dansk Tyge Brahes anläggning Uranienborg på Hven i Öresund låg på öns högsta punkt med fri utsikt åt alla håll, mot såväl Skånes som Sjællands kuster.
Tycho Brahe - Skånelands och Danmarks störste vetenskapsman
Det danska adelsväldet på 1500- och 1600-talen var mycket olyckligt ur många hänseenden, men det hindrade inte att många adelsmän var stora fosterlandsvänner som bringade ära över sina namn. Somliga gav ett stort stöd till konsten och vetenskapen, t ex Arild Huitfeld som skrev Danmarkshistorien på det danska modersmålet "Danmarckis Rigis Krønicke", och skåningen Herluf Trolle (född på Lillö slott vid nuvarande Kristianstad), vilken ivrade för skolväsendet. Men Tycho Brahe får ändå anses som vårt största skånsk-danska namn bland de lärda. Tycho Ottesen Brahe föddes 1546 på slottet Knutstorp (Knudstrup) nära Helsingborg, på Söderåsens sluttning mot söder. Dock uppfostrades han inte där, ty hans far Otte Brahe hade lovat sin barnlöse bror Jørgen Brahe, att om han fick en son skulle hans bror Jørgen, som var gift med Inger Okse (syster till den store statsmannen Peder Okse), få pågen som eget barn. Därför uppfostrades Tycho Brahe på Tosterups slott nere på Österlen i sydöstra Skåne. Och kanske var det just på grund av att Tycho Brahe växte upp ensam och utan syskon och därför blev bortskämd av sina fosterföräldrar, som grundlade den hänsynslöshet som senare i livet skulle visa sig bli ödesdiger för honom. Vid sexton års åldes sändes han av sin farbror Jørgen till Leipzig för att studera juridik, och studierna fortsatte senare i Wittenberg, Rostock och Augsburg. Men det blev inte mycket juridik, istället kastade sig den unge Tycho över sitt favoritstudium, astronomin.

Tycho Brahe Tycho Brahe Tyge (Latinized as Tycho) Brahe was born on 14 December 1546 in Skane, then in Denmark, now in Sweden. He was the eldest son of Otto Brahe and Beatte Bille, both from families in the high nobility of Denmark. He was brought up by his paternal uncle Jörgen Brahe and became his heir. He attended the universities of Copenhagen and Leipzig, and then traveled through the German region, studying further at the universities of Wittenberg, Rostock, and Basel. During this period his interest in alchemy and astronomy was aroused, and he bought several astronomical instruments. In 1572 Tycho observed the new star in Cassiopeia and published a brief tract about it the following year. In 1574 he gave a course of lectures on astronomy at the University of Copenhagen. He was now convinced that the improvement of astronomy hinged on accurate observations. After another tour of Germany, where he visited astronomers, Tycho accepted an offer from the King Frederick II to fund an observatory. He was given the little island of Hven in the Sont near Copenhagen, and there he built his observatory, Uraniburg, which became the finest observatory in Europe. Tycho designed and built new instruments, calibrated them, and instituted nightly observations. He also ran his own printing press. The observatory was visited by many scholars, and Tycho trained a generation of young astronomers there in the art of observing. After a falling out with King Christian IV, Tycho packed up his instruments and books in 1597 and left Denmark. After traveling several years, he settled in Prague in 1599 as the Imperial Mathematician at the court of

Tycho Brahe astronom Danmark . Född 14 december 1546 på [Knutstorps slott] i Skåne , som då var en del av Danmark , död 24 oktober 1601 i Prag . Namnet Tycho är en latiniserad form av dennes ursprungliga danska namn Tyge. I en duell i december 1566 förlorade Tycho en del av sin näsa och bar resten av sitt liv en protes av koppar som ersättning. När man öppnade Tychos grav år 1901 fann man spår av koppar kring den plats där näsan suttit. Han lär även ha haft en lyxvariant i en legering av silver och guld som gav en hudliknande färg. Den 11 november 1572 när han tittade på stjärnhimlen upptäckte han en stjärna som inte funnits där innan. (Egentligen var stjärnan en supernova ). Detta ledde till att idéen om ett oföränderligt universum omkullkastades. Tycho förlänades av Kung Fredrik II av Danmark år 1576 ön Ven i Öresund där han byggde observatoriet Stjärneborg och slottet Uraniborg . Idag finns bara rester kvar. På Ven ordnade han även med bland annat pappersbruk och tryckeri för att han skulle kunna publicera sig.

Tycho Brahe Brahe (b. Dec. 14, 1546, Knudstrup, Scania, Den.d. Oct. 24, 1601, Prague), Danish astronomer whose work in developing astronomical instruments and in measuring and fixing the positions of stars paved the way for future discoveries. His observationsthe most accurate possible before the invention of the telescopeincluded a comprehensive study of the solar system and accurate positions of more than 777 fixed stars. Tycho's father was a privy councillor and later governor of the castle of Hdlsingborg, which controls the main waterway to the Baltic Sea. His wealthy and childless uncle abducted Tycho at a very early age and, after the initial parental shock was overcome, raised him at his castle in Tostrup, Scania, also financing the youth's education, which began with the study of law at the University of Copenhagen in 1559-62. Several important natural events turned Tycho from law to astronomy. The first was the total eclipse of the Sun predicted for Aug. 21, 1560. Such a prediction seemed audacious and marvellous to a 14-year-old student, but when Tycho witnessed its realization he saw and believedthe spark was litand, as his many later references testify, he never forgot the event. His subsequent student life was divided between his daytime lectures on jurisprudence, in response to the wishes of his uncle, and his nighttime vigil of the stars. The professor of mathematics helped him with the only printed astronomical book available, the Almagest of Ptolemy, the astronomer of antiquity who described the geocentric conception of the cosmos. Other teachers helped him to construct small globes, on which star positions could be plotted, and compasses and cross-staffs, with which he could estimate the angular separation of stars.

Tycho Brahe (1546-1601) Dansk astronom. Født på Knuthstorp, Skåne, som dengang var dansk. Tycho Brahe var søn af en dansk adelsmand. Han blev sat til at læse jura, men var meget mere interesseret i astronomi . Under sine juridiske studier brugte han i smug megen tid på astronomien. Brahe observerede supernovaen 1572 meget indgående og udsendte året efter en lille bog De nova stella om sine iagttagelser. Denne bog gjorde ham kendt over hele Europa. I bogen påviste han, at den nye stjerne var længere væk end Månen. Dette var betydningsfuldt, fordi han derved kunne påvise det forkerte i den aristoteliske tanke om, at alt uden for Månens bane var evigt og uforanderligt. Hermed led det geocentriske verdenssystem et alvorligt knæk. De nova stella var medvirkende til, at Frederik II (1534-1588, konge 1559-1588) gav ham
