Johannes Kepler

During the time of Johannes Kepler the Thirty year war was going on. Thi was a major event because Keper was a Protestant. It was very difficult for him since Catholics had more power.Johannes Kepler famouse for the discovery of Kepler's law. It took him nearly eight years to come up with. He came up with three laws. The fact that planets travel on elliptical paths is known as Kepler's First Law. His second law was that a planet moved slower when it was farther away from the sun than it did when nearby. And finally his third law was published a decade later, and recognized that the relationship between the period of two planets the time they take to orbit the sun is connected to their distance from the sun. Keplers inpact in todays worldKepler's laws have helped Isaac Newton with his laws and theroies. Today Kepler has helped create a base on undersnading gravity.

Accomplishments

Johannes Kepler famouse for the discovery of Kepler's law. It tokk him nearly eight years to come up with. He came up with three laws. The fact that planets travel on elliptical paths is known as Kepler's First Law. His second law was that a planet moved slower when it was farther away from the sun than it did when nearby. And finally his third law was published a decade later, and recognized that the relationship between the period of two planets the time they take to orbit the sun is connected to their distance from the sun. Some othe accomplishments were creating eye glasses for near and far vision. Kepler claimed that gravity was caused by two bodies, rather than one, and as such, the moon was the cause of the motion of tides on the Earth. He suggested that the sun rotates, and created the word 'satellite'. He tried to use his knowledge of the distance Earth travels to measure the distance to the stars. Kepler also calculated the birth year of Christ.

Challenges

Kepler has faced many challenges. He was born as a very sick child, and had suffered various of other illnesses on a regular basis.Another challenge he faced was being lutheran. Getting jobs was hard because most of the people who were hiring were catholic. Also, while Kepler was working on his Harmony of the World, his mother was charged with witchcraft. He enlisted the help of the legal faculty at Tübingen. Katharina Kepler was eventually released, at least partly as a result of technical objections arising from the authorities' failure to follow the correct legal procedures in the use of torture.
