On the 13th February, 1578, Tycho Brahe first sketches out his "Tychonic system" of the solar system.

Danish scientists are preparing to open the tomb of Tycho Brahe at a church in Old Town Prague today, Radio Prague reported Nov. 14. The experts hope to settle a long-running dispute over what caused the death of the astronomer, who served at the royal court in Prague at the invitation of Holy Roman Emperor and Czech King Rudolph II more than 400 years ago. The exhumation at the Church of Our Lady Before Tın could reveal if Brahe died of an internal bladder infection as previously believed or if he had been poisoned.

A new theory by Danish scholars claims that Brahe was poisoned with mercury on the orders of Christian IV, the King of Denmark, because the astronomer had an affair with his mother. It is even suggested that Shakespeare used the alleged liaison as an inspiration for Hamlet.
