Design Information

Sophia Brahe, 1556 – 1642

Sophia was the youngest of a 10 member aristocratic Swedish family.

Her principal interests were in astronomy, chemistry, medicine and horticulture.

For several decades Sophia worked with her brother Tycho Brahe, measuring and recording the planetary motions relative to the background stars. She compiled a catalog of the locations and motions of all the known planets. This was a vast amount of data, and formed the basis of our understanding of the earth's motion within the solar planetary system.

Kepler used this data to develop his 3 laws of planetary motion.

With her brother she observed the first recorded supernova; she was also able to record a lunar eclipse and a comet.

Some members of Sophia's family had an association with the king of Denmark, and as a consequence sophia's dabbling in science was not looked on favourably, science was not a suitable activity for a member of her family. But brother Tycho encouraged her.

Sophia was an independent spirit, and at one stage she had her monetary allowance cut off, because she married a person deemed to be unsuitable. Probably hasn't changed much over the years.
