Storyboard Text

  • I am Henrich Kepler, the father of Kepler
  • I am Johannes Kepler
  • I am Katharina Kepler, the mother of Kepler.
  • The sun is in the middle. People think that Earth is in the middle.
  • Johannes Kepler is born on December 27, 1571 in Weil der Stadt, Wurttemberg. Kepler was a sickly child and his parents were poor. Kepler's family is a Lutheran. Kepler was forced to leave his teaching posts at Graz because he is a Lutheran and moved to Prague to work with the Danish astronomer, Tycho Brahe.
  • The distance between Earth and Mars is about 54.6 km.
  • After Tycho Brahe died on October 24, 1601, Kepler used Tycho's detailed observations. Kepler realized that the planets traveled in "stretched out" circles known as ellipses. Kepler now knows that the sun didn't sit exactly at the center of their orbit. Once he understood that those planets traveled in ellipses, he determined that an invisible line connecting the sun to a planet.
  • In 1612, Lutherans were forced out of Prague, so Kepler moved on to Linz. Johannes Kepler married Barbara Müller. They also had financial issues. He has two sons and two daughters. Barbara and the two sons died recently. The two daughters died and Kelper successfully defended his mother (Katharina Kepler) against charges of witchcraft. 
  • Kepler's third law is the relationship between the two periods of two planets, time they orbit the sun, and connected to their distance from the sun. While his other two laws focus on the specifics of a single planet's movement, his third law is a comparison between the orbit of two planets.
  • In 1621, Kepler's most influential work and discussed all heliocentric astronomy in a systematic way. Kepler then went to Rudolphine Table that Tycho had envisioned a long time ago. These included calculations including logarithms, which he developed, and provided perpetually tables for calculating planetary positions for any past or future dates. Kepler used the tables to predict a pair of transits by Mercury and Venus of the Sun. 
  • Johannes Kelper died in Regensburg in 1630, while on a journey from his home in Sagan to collect his debt. Frail of body, but robust in mind and spirit, Kelper was scrupulously honest to the data.
