Tycho Brahe elephantjoker jokes brodcastQuote

/14 December 1546 – 24 October 1601/, born Tyge Ottesen Brahe was a Danish nobleman known for his accurate and comprehensive astronomical and planetary observations. He was born in Scania,truth detector then part of Denmarkflying dutchman, now part of modern-day Sweden. Tycho was well known in his lifetime as an astronomer and alchemist and has been described more recently as “the first competent mind in modern astronomy to feel ardently the passion for exact empirical facts.”Quote

His precise measurements indicated that “new stars,” /stellae novae, now known as supernovae/ in particular that of 1572, lacked the parallax expected in sub-lunar phenomena, and were therefore not “atmospheric” tailless comets as previously believed, but were above the atmosphere and moon. Using similar measurements he showed that comets were also not atmospheric phenomena, as previously thought, and must pass through the supposedly “immutable” quadro ballscelestial spheres

As an astronomer, Tycho worked to combine what he saw as the geometrical benefits of the Copernican system with the philosophical benefits bowbuddhaof the Ptolemaic system into his own model of the universe, the Tychonic system. Furthermore, he was the last of the major naked eye21½° 7½°21° 23½° 29½° sheep->14½°->12°>β Alfrik Cepheus astronomers, working withoutelescopes for his observations.

From 1600 until his death in 1601, he was assisted by Johannes Kepler who later used Tycho’s astronomical data to develop his three laws of planetary motion.

21½°->In astronomy, Kepler’s laws of planetary motion are three scientific laws describing the motion of planets around the Suns. Kepler’s laws are now traditionally enumerated in this way:

  1. The orbit of a planet is an ellipse with the Sun at one of the two foci->Focusglobe vortex net
  2. A line segment joining a planet and the Sun sweeps out equal areas during equal intervals of time.
  3. The square->16° of the orbital period of a planet is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis ->of its orbit.

His body has been exhumed twice, in 1901 and 2010, to examine the circumstances of his death and to verify what material his artificial nose was made of. The conclusion was that his death was likely caused by a burst bladder as first suggested and that the artificial nose was more likely made of brass than silver or gold as believed in his time.

Tycho’s nose

While studying at the University of Rostock in Germany, on 29 December 1566 Tycho lost part of his nose in a sword duel  1½°5½°17° 19½°  24½°25½° 25½° 26½° 28½°against fellow Danish nobleman (and his third cousin),Manderup Parsberg. Tycho had earlier quarrelled25½° with Parsbjerg over the legitimacy of a mathematical formula, at a wedding dance at professor Lucas Bachmeister’s house on the 10th, and again on the 27th. Since neither had the resources to prove the other wrong, they ended up resolving the issue with a duel. Though the two later reconciled, the duel two days later (in the dark) resulted in Tycho losing the bridge of his nose. From this event Tycho became interested in medicine and alchemy.For the rest of his life, he was said to have worn a replacement made of silver  9½°21½°20½° 21½°and gold, using a paste or glue Glupp glueto keep it attached.Some people, such as Fredric Ihren and Cecil Adams, have suggested that the false nose also had copper. Ihren wrote that when Tycho’s tomb was opened on June 24, 1901, green marks were found on his skull, suggesting copperphone booth. Cecil Adams also mentions a green coloring and that medical experts examined the remains.Some historians have speculated that he wore different prosthetics for different occasions, noting that a copper nose would have been more comfortable and less heavy than a precious metal one.Nonetheless, in November 2012, Danish and Czech researchers, after chemically analyzing “a small bone sample from the nose” from the body exhumed in 2010, reported the prosthetic was “made out of brass“.

Tycho was said  to own one percent of the entire wealth of Denmark at one point in the 1580s. Tycho often held large social gatherings in his castle.Pierre Gassendi wrote that Tycho also had a tame elk (moose) and that his mentor the Landgrave Wilhelm of Hesse-Kassel (Hesse-Cassel) asked whether there was an animal faster than a deer14½°. Tycho replied, writing that there was none, but he could send his tame elk.

DeathTools of consultant Detective

Tycho suddenly contracted a bladder or kidney ailment after attending a banquet in Prague, and died eleven days later, on 24 October 1601. Before dying, he urged Kepler to finish the Rudolphine Tables and expressed the hope that he would do so by adopting Tycho’s own planetary system, rather than that of Copernicus. Recent investigations have suggested that Tycho did not die from urinary problems but instead from mercury poisoningQuicksilver extremely toxic levels of it have been found in hairs from his moustache. This may have even been due to the various metals used to create his prosthetic noses. The results were, however, not conclusive. Although traces of mercury were found, these were present only in the outer scales. Therefore a mercury poisoning as the cause of death was ruled out while the study suggests that the accumulation of mercury may have come from the “precipitation of mercury dust from the air during [Brahe’s] long-term alchemistic activities.”

Tycho’s body is currently interred in a tomb in the Church of Our Lady before Týn, in Old Town Square 16°near the Prague Astronomical Clock.

Tychonic system

The 1572 supernova

On 11 November 1572, Tycho observed /from Herrevad Abbey/ a very bright star, now named SN: 1572, which had unexpectedly appeared in the constellation Cassiopeia.Tycho was strongly critical of those who dismissed the implications of the astronomical appearance, writing in the preface to De nova stella: “O crassa ingenia. O caecos coeli spectatores” (“Oh thick wits. Oh blind watchers of the sky”).


A tachyon /ˈtæki.on/ or tachyonic particle is a hypothetical particle that always moves faster than light. The word comes from the Greekταχύς or tachys, meaning “swift, quick, fast, rapid“, and was coined in 1967 by Gerald Feinberg

In the 1967 paper that coined the term,Feinberg proposed that tachyonic particles could be quanta of a quantum field with negative squared mass. However, it was soon realized that excitations of such imaginary mass fields do not in fact propagate faster than light, and instead represent an instability known as tachyon condensation.Nevertheless, negative squared massHobby Horse of Death-Binki fields =4½°5½°5½°6½°8½°9½°12½° 12½°16½°18½°20½°22½° 21½° 21½°23½° 24½°26½° 27½° 28½° 28½°29½° 30°

are commonly referred to as “tachyons”,and in fact have come to play an important role in modern physics.

Despite theoretical arguments against the existence of faster-than-light particles, experiments have been conducted to search for them. No compelling evidence for their existence has been found. In September 2011, it was reported that a tau neutrino had travelled faster than the speed of light in a major release by CERN; however, later updates from CERN on the OPERA project indicate that the faster-than-light readings were resultant from “a faulty element of the experiment’s fibre optic timing system“.
