Johannes Kepler

The universe was really three-dimensional, and instead of thinking of circles, he should be thinking about spheres, with the planetary orbits being along the equators.

Was a mathmetician, which helped him think of the planets as ratios- helping him understand that planets were specific ways apart from each other, instead of equal distance.
