Laws of the Universe. - 2 In part 2 of the equation series. How Newton united physics and astronomy, and brought us face to face with one of the most mysterious and terrifying objects in the Universe. Mutual Attraction Medieval astronomy was dominated by the writings of Aristotle. Aristotle divided motion into earthly lines and heavenly circles, so the planets must surely move about us in perfect circles. Astronomers soon learned this wasn’t true, but the physics of Aristotle was so deeply rooted in the minds of scholars that astronomers imposed circular motion upon the heavens for a thousand years. When a single circle could not describe the motion of a planet, they placed circles upon circles (known as epicycles), each rotating just so, to match a planet’s motion. As more precise measurements of the planets were made, more epicycles were needed. Then in the early seventeenth century Johannes Kepler published three simple rules that described the motion of the planets. They are now known as Kepl ...
There are two books laid before us to study, to prevent our falling into error: first, the volume of the Scriptures, which reveal the will of God; then the volume of the Creatures, which express His power. -Francis Bacon, Scientific Method Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance. -Isaac Newton, Physics, Mathematics Atheism is so senseless & odious to mankind that it never had many professors. -Isaac Newton O God, I am thinking Thy thoughts after Thee. -Johannes Kepler, Astronomy The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator. -Louis Pasteur, Medicine Finite man cannot begin to comprehend an omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, and infinite God … I find it best to accept God through faith, as an intelligent will, perfect in goodness and wisdom, revealing Himself through His creation. -Werner Von Braun, Rocket Science The conduct o ...
Without exception, the response to the Post-Gutenberg Revolution, by traditional publishers and the major chain bookstores, as well as most of the independents, has been to cry foul and seek ways to circle the wagons, attempting to close off all the more to the change that they are indisputably incapable of controlling. I believe the only thing that will work is to open the front door to writers like these self-publishers: Mark Twain, James Fenimore Cooper, Walt Whitman, William Blake, John Milton, Henry Adams, Ezra Pound, e. e. cummings, Edgar Allan Poe, James Joyce, D.

The Man Who Unlocked the Secrets of the Solar System BY AWAKE! WRITER IN GERMANY SIXTEENTH-CENTURY Europeans regarded comets with awe. So when a comet made famous by Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe was visible in the night sky, Katharina Kepler got her six-year-old son, Johannes, out of bed to see it. Over 20 years later, when Brahe died, whom did Emperor Rudolf II appoint to replace him as imperial mathematician? At 29 years of age, Johannes Kepler became the imperial mathematician to the Holy Roman Emperor, a position he held for the rest of his life. Mathematics is not the only science in which Kepler is held in high esteem. He distinguished himself in the fields of optics and astronomy. Kepler, small in stature, had an astonishing intellect and also a resolute character. He suffered discrimination when he would not convert to Roman Catholicism, even under great pressure. Mathematical Genius Johannes Kepler was born in 1571 in Weil der Stadt, a small town on the edge of the German Black Forest. The famil ...
"Horoscopes is Not of God," but in bible days the stars and the moon were used to establish "time " as we know it today ,for finding directions, navigation on the high seas,naming seasons and also to determine the Jewish festivals (Passover) ,Yom Kippur(The most important Jewish holiday) etc. In bible times Astrology was Used by man to determine "time ".Its Astronomy that has to do with the Studying of the universe,and "Stars " like we know it in horoscopes today. A long time ago, astronomy and astrology were the same. People studied the motions of the planets and hoped to used them to predict not only the behavior of the heavens, but also wars, natural disasters, the rise and fall of kings, and other earthly matters. However, around the time of Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton, astronomers came to realize that astrology was basically bunk. From that time on, the primary job of an astronomer was to use physics to understand what was going on in the sky. I hope that cleared up any controve ...
Watching COSMOS tonight, I had 2 great realizations. The first: it seems like a lot of great Scientific minds in history were devout Christians. Charles Darwin, Michael Faraday, Nicholas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, Rene Descartes, Sir Isaac Newton, Gregor Mendel (was a monk). I make this observation only to *** off right-wingers who make a big deal out of hating Science by saying it's "Godless". The second realization: why right-wingers hate Science so much. I'll deliver that essay later.
Happy Birthday Universe! According to Johannes Kepler, the universe was created on this day in 4977 B.C. A not so awesome theory from one of the greatest minds that ever lived. Why we remember him: Mathematician and astronomer Johannes Kepler, considered a founder of modern science. Kepler is best known for his theories explaining the motion of planets. Kepler was born on December 27, 1571, in Weil der Stadt, Germany. As a university student, he studied the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus' theories of planetary ordering. Copernicus (1473-1543) believed that the sun, not the earth, was the center of the solar system, a theory that contradicted the prevailing view of the era that the sun revolved around the earth. In 1600, Kepler went to Prague to work for Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, the imperial mathematician to Rudolf II, emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. Kepler's main project was to investigate the orbit of Mars. When Brahe died the following year, Kepler took over his job and inherited Brahe's ...
WOW...The Ultimate Message! (Read carefully if you have time) - "In 1514 A.D. Copernicus had the idea that the sun was stationary at the center and the earth and the planet moved in circular orbits around the sun. Nearly a century passed before the idea was taken seriously, when Johannes Kepler and Galileo Galilei started publicly to support it. It was the death blow to the Ptolemy model according to which the earth stood at the center surrounded by the moon, sun, stars and five planets. In 1929 Hubble observations showed that the sun is also rotating around the galaxy." - A Brief History of Time (Stephen Hawking) - Quran in around 600 A.D. : "He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round)! Each running (its course) for a term appointed." - Surah Ar-Raad (Verse 2) - "Before the 20th century, no one had suggested that the universe was expanding or contracting. Even those who realized that Newton's theory of gravity (1687) showed that the universe could not be static did not think to sugges ...
List of Famous Scientists in History Charles Darwin (1564 - 1642) "On the origin of species by means of natural selection" is Darwin's famous book published in 1859. Johannes Kepler (1571 - 1630) Kepler compiled the Mars data which enabled him to propose the "Three Laws of Planetary Motion". Louis Pasteur (1822 - 1895) Some of his works are: separation of mirror image molecules and effect of polarized light, and identification of the parasite that was killing silkworms.
Certainly Johannes Kepler felt that way, it's just that he didn't let his religion get in the way of doing his science.
"The five petalled rose pattern traced over eight years in the skies above earth by our nearest neighbor, Venus, depicted 400 years ago by the German astronomer, Johannes Kepler.

Wikipedia Reference Johannes Kepler Johannes Kepler (German: [ˈkʰɛplɐ]; December 27, 1571 – November 15, 1630) was a German mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer. A key figure in the 17th century scientific revolution, he is best known for his laws of planetary motion, based on his works Astronomia nova, Harmonices Mundi, and Epitome of Copernican Astronomy. These works also provided one of the foundations for Isaac Newton's theory of universal gravitation. During his career, Kepler was a mathematics teacher at a seminary school in Graz, Austria, where he became an associate of Prince Hans Ulrich von Eggenberg. Later he became an assistant to astronomer Tycho Brahe, and eventually the imperial mathematician to Emperor Rudolf II and his two successors Matthias and Ferdinand II. He was also a mathematics teacher in Linz, Austria, and an adviser to General Wallenstein. Additionally, he did fundamental work in the field of optics, invented an improved version of the refracting telescope (the Kepleri ...
"When he (Johannes Kepler) found that his long cherished beliefs did not agree with the most careful observations, he accepted the uncomfortable facts. He preferred the hard truth to his dearest delusions. That is the heart of science." Carl Sagan (American astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and science communicator)

Wow! While one recent writer to the newspaper portrayed believers in God as ignorant fools, he sure made a lot of ignorant statements for all to see. It appears that the writer was a graduate of what has become our governments premier brainwashing systems called public education. Let me shed a little truth on the ridiculous assumption that "religion and science can't exist in the same realm of probability." While all of these famous scientists were not Christian, they all believed in a Creator: Nicholas Copernicus was the Polish astronomer who put forward the first mathematically based system of planets going around the sun and was also a devout Christian (so much for the claim that we teach that the sun goes around the earth); Sir Francis Bacon was a philosopher who is known for establishing the scientific method of inquiry based on experimentation and inductive reasoning. He rejected atheism as being the product of shallow philosophy; Johannes Kepler was a brilliant mathematician and astronomer. H ...

"Equipped with five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure science." -Edward Hubble (May, 1929) "Philosophy is written in this grand book --I mean the universe which stands continually open to our gaze, but the book cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometrical figures, without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it; without these, one is wandering around in a dark labyrinth." --Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) "Geometry supplied God with a model for the creation of the world. Geometry was implanted into human nature along with God's image and not through man's visual perception and experience." --Johannes Kepler (1571-1630)
"Silenced Voices" by Ethan G. (Grade 9) On February 14, 1989, the spiritual leader of Iran called on all devout Muslims to kill Salman Rushdie because of references to the prophet Mohammed in his novel The Satanic Verses. In response, thousands of people worldwide showed their solidarity by wearing "I am Salman Rushdie" buttons. Rushdie went into hiding until 1998, emerging only when the order was lifted. In a world without the freedom to read, I am Salman Rushdie. I am 460 Confucian scholars who were suffocated to death so that recorded history would begin with the reign of Emperor Shih Huang Ti.

Galileo, Hubble and the Triumph of Science Two mathematicians, Rene Descartes (1596-1650) and Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) helped the cause with their advancements in the quantitative fields of analysis. Descartes created algebraic geometry and co-authored the sine law of refraction. And while Kepler was busy keeping ahead of the ubiquitous religious tyrants of his day he nevertheless still found the time to develop the laws of planetary motion that proved the orbits of the planets were elliptical not circular. Scientists now had a substantial repertoire of mathematical armaments that they could use to develop physics and further their understanding of our natural world. Sir Isaac Newton (1643 – 1727), regarded by many to be the most brilliant primate to ever walk the planet, successfully tied together the work of his predecessors and for good measure invented calculus as the zenith in this evolving chain of scientific discovery. The publication of Copernicus’ disobedient heliocentric ideas very near . ...

Darkness at Night: Olbers’ Paradox One of the most basic and important observations of cosmology is that the sky is dark at night. This is true when we observe the sky ourselves on a dark night, and it remains true when one considers the most sensitive optical images of the Universe ever made by the Hubble Space Telescope. There is “black space” between the galaxies. Scientists such as Johannes Kepler (in about 1610) and Edmund Halley (in the 1700’s) realized the importance of this observation quite early. The German astronomer Heinrich Olbers popularized this issue around 1826, and it has come to be known as Olbers’ paradox (even though Olbers did not make major progress in resolving the paradox). Why is the sky dark at night? To understand why this is a deeply profound question, let’s consider the case of a universe that is infinitely large, infinitely old, and uniformly filled with stars. In such a universe, one’s line of sight in any direction should always intersect a star’s surface e ...

Sir Isaac Newton (well known as God of calculus) was born in the county of Lincolnshire, England on the 25th day of December in 1643. His father died just months before he was born, and when he was three years old, his mother left him in the care of his grandmother. He died a virgin on the 20th March 1727 (84yrs). Isaac was always a top student, and went off to the University of Cambridge at age 19. While at Cambridge, Newton was influenced by the writings of Galileo, Nicholas Copernicus, and Johannes Kepler. By 1665, Newton began developing a mathematical theory that would lead to the development of calculus, one of the fundamental branches of mathematics. Newton would go on to discover other important math theories such as Newton’s Identities, and Newton’s Method. Today as Mathematicians, we remember him, his writings and his fruitful theories. let us rejoice in his name. Merry Christmas mathematicians!

1939, the German playwright Bertolt Brecht castigated Nazi policies by writing a play about Galileo’s heroic behaviour under prosecution by the Catholic Inquisition. To construct his political parallel, Brecht drew on the appealing mythology of a prolonged war in which scientific revolutionaries- Nicolas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei- battle against religious bigots to place the Sun at the centre of the Universe. Victorian scientists depicted these men as martyrs to reason who sacrificed themselves to keep the flame of truth alight, an image of confrontation between science and religion that still remains popular. Yet when viewed from their own perspective, all three were deeply religious, and more concerned about their own lives than in carving out any straight road towards the future." . "Brecht served his own rhetorical ends by perpetuating their simplified view of a hero battling against Catholic oppression, but it was scientific propagandists who launched the notion that science and ...

Ciné-Kodak Special II - 16mm movie camera (ca. 1948) A camera is an optical instrument that records images that can be stored directly, transmitted to another location, or both. These images may be still photographs or moving images such as videos or movies. The term camera comes from the word camera obscura (Latin for "dark chamber"), an early mechanism for projecting images. The modern camera evolved from the camera obscura. Functional description HistoryEdit Main article: History of the camera How a camera obscura works: Light from a real object enters a dark room or box through a small hole. An inverted image of the object is created on the wall opposite the small hole. A smaller hole results in a sharper, but dimmer, image.[1] The forerunner to the photographic camera was the camera obscura.[2] In the fifth century B.C., the Chinese philosopher Mo Ti noted that a pinhole can form an inverted and focused image, when light passe ...

Q1. Who was the first scientist to promote the idea that the Earth goes around the Sun.?? (A) Johannes Kepler (B) Nicolaus Copernicus (C) Tycho Brahe (D) Isaac Newton
Who knew? The very first book of science fiction was written by Johannes Kepler between 1620 and 1630. It is titled Somnium, or The Dream, in Latin) In it a student of Tycho Brahe is transported to the Moon by occult forces. It presents a detailed imaginative description of how the earth might look when viewed from the moon, and is considered the first serious scientific treatise on lunar astronomy. Carl Sagan and Isaac Asimov have referred to it as the first work of science fiction.
my friends are very impotarnt in my life they are Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Isaac Newton, Tycho Brahe
Not really Isaac Newton, Carolus Linneaus, Gregor Mendel, Johannes Kepler, just to name a few.
Remember when the Church opposed science? A Heliocentric Cosmos, Nicolaus Copernicus. Written by Polish astronomer Copernicus (1473-1543) and published just before his death, the work was met with tremendous opposition for contradicting current religious beliefs. It laid the groundwork for the research of Johannes Kepler, Galileo, and Isaac Newton.
There’s a reason why notable figures in the past are mostly jack of all trades. Take Johannes Kepler for instance, he was an astronomer,

I know some of you would not be interested in what I have to say, but i'd like to take a moment to show appreciation to all leading men of science to whom we owe a great thanks. They helped shaped the world as we know it by sacrificing their time, families and lives for the purpose of evolution and progress. Among these distinguished men are Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Neils Bohr, Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud, Galileo Galilei, Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, Johannes Kepler, Nicolaus Copernicus, Michael Faraday, James Clerk Maxwell, Claude Bernard, Pierre Simon de Laplace, Edwin Hubble , Joseph J. Thomson, Leonard Euler, Erwin Schrodinger, Richard Feynman, Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking and many more. Don't take anything for granted. End the violence and wars. These are people you should consider as leaders. They lead you to the future, war criminals lead you to the past...
WHAT LAWS GOVERN THE MOVEMENTS OF THE PLANETS? In the early 17th century, the German astronomer Johannes Kepler formulated three laws to describe the movements of the planets within the solar system. The first law covers the shape of a planet's orbit, which is always elliptical, with the Sun at one of the foci of the ellipse . The second law describes the planet's speed. An imaginary line joining the Sun and a planet sweeps out equal areas during equal intervals of time. We van deduce from this that when a planet is closest to the Sun (at perihelion) it travels faster than when it is furthest away (at aphelion). Finally, the complicated third law compares the orbits of various planets. Using the orbital period (T) of a planet and the semi-major axis of its orbital ellipse. Kelper'z three laws turn out to be natural consequence of the law of universal gravitation, formulated by Isaac Newton and published in 1687.

The Physicists: Their Role in Society 1.Galileo Galilei(1564-1642) - He studied the behavior of falling bodies and formulated laws covering the behavior of these objects. 2. Johannes Kepler(1571-1630) - He discovered that the planets move in an elliptical orbit. The laws of Kepler are used in calculating the flight paths of today’s space vehicle. 3. Robert Boyle(1627-1691) – He formulated Boyle’s law, which states that at constant temperature the volume of gas is inversely proportional to pressure. 4. Sir Isaac Newton(1642-1727) - He formulated the laws of motion and the universal law of gravitation. 5. Benjamin Franklin(1706-1790) - He is noted for his experiments on electricity.

Saturday, June 01, 2013 God's Word Is Always Ahead of Science by Rick Warren “Praise him, you highest heaven and the water above the sky. Let them praise the name of the Lord because they were created by his command. He set them in their places forever and ever. He made it a law that no one can break.” (Psalm 148:4-6 GW) Someone may have told you at one time that the Bible isn’t scientifically accurate. That person is wrong. They’ve either never studied the Bible or never studied science. God sets up the laws of science; he made sure that his Word doesn’t contradict those laws. Johannes Kepler, the famous mathematician and astronomer, once said, “Science is simply thinking God’s thoughts after him.” In other words, God established the laws of physics, and then we discover them. The Bible wasn’t meant to be a scientific textbook. You don’t study the Bible to build a rocket. And the Bible doesn’t use scientific language. But the Bible never gives bad science! Not once during the 1,600 ...
The camera has become such a common device these days that it is more likely to find one in a person's pocket than finding a wallet! Even when buying cell phones, the first feature everyone looks for is a built-in camera. The story of invention of this extraordinary device is full of events that start from the era of Aristotle, who made use of gaps between leaves and holes in a sieve to view partial images of the sun. Great painters like Leonardo da Vinci and astronomers like Johannes Kepler are known to have understood the significance of being able to capture an image. Neither is it easy to pinpoint the exact time when the first camera was made, nor to call any one person its inventor. But the mention of the word 'camera' makes us curious to know who invented it. History of Camera To know about the person behind this awesome invention, we may think that we have to rewind to not more than 200 years. But in fact, to know the complete story we need to go back thousands of years, even before the invention o ...
Kepler's Supernova Remnant in X-Rays What caused this mess? Some type of star exploded to create the unusually shaped nebula known as Kepler's supernova remnant, but which type? Light from the stellar explosion that created this energized cosmic cloud was first seen on planet Earth in October 1604, a mere four hundred years ago. The supernova produced a bright new star in early 17th century skies within the constellation Ophiuchus. It was studied by astronomer Johannes Kepler and his contemporaries, without the benefit of a telescope, as they searched for an explanation of the heavenly apparition. Armed with a modern understanding of stellar evolution, early 21st century astronomers continue to explore the expanding debris cloud, but can now use orbiting space telescopes to survey Kepler's supernova remnant (SNR) across the spectrum. Recent X-ray data and images of Kepler's supernova remnant taken by the orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory has shown relative elemental abundances typical of a Type Ia supern ...

Fascinating! If one were to think in terms of musical frequencies emitted by each planet in a specific sign, a person's horoscope would make a specific kind of harmony or music. Then, when brought together with others (people or even planets that continue to move through time), the music would be either enhanced or become cacophonic. In fact, the music is constantly encouraged to adapt and rearrange itself to fit the stronger pattern. Johannes Kepler (1561-1630) spoke convincingly of the harmony that permeates the universe, extending the work of Pythagoras and the theme of "music of the spheres". Pythagoras defined music as the perfect union of contrary things, as unity in multiplicity, oraccord in discord. Indeed, music does not only coordinate rhythm and modulation, but imposes order on the whole system. Pythagoras discovered that the pitch of a musical note changed if the length of a piece of string was stopped half way along. This created an octave that produced the same quality of sound as the note p ...

International Women’s Day. In memory of Frederic Goudy. Past March 8s: 1618: Johannes Kepler discovers third law of planetary motion— ”The square of the orbital period of a planet is directly proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit.” (Of course!) 1782: Some 160 Pennsylvania militiamen murder 96 Christian Indians--39 children, 29 women and 28 men--by hammering their skulls with mallets from behind as they kneel unarmed, praying and singing, in their Moravian Mission at Gnadenhuetten in the Ohio Country. 1920: Baroness Raymonde de la Roche becomes the first licensed woman pilot. 1964: Small group of Sioux attempt to take Alcatraz, invoking the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie. 1979: First extraterrestrial volcano is discovered on Jupiter’s satellite Io. 2012: Scientists claim a recent study suggests that donor stem cells may prevent organ rejection in cases of imperfectly matched transplants.
8 March is the 67th day of the year (68th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. On this day in the year: 1576 – Spanish explorer Diego García de Palacio first sights the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of Copán. 1618 – Johannes Kepler discovers the third law of planetary motion. 1655 – John Casor becomes the first legally-recognized slave in England's North American colonies. 1702 – Anne Stuart, sister of Mary II, becomes Queen regnant of England, Scotland, and Ireland. 1722 – The Safavid Empire of Iran is defeated by an army from Afghanistan at The Battle of Gulnabad, pushing Iran into anarchy. 1736 – Nader Shah, founder of the Afsharid dynasty, is crowned Shah of Iran. 1775 – An anonymous writer, thought by some to be Thomas Paine, publishes "African Slavery in America", the first article in the American colonies calling for the emancipation of slaves and the abolition of slavery. 1777 – Regiments from Ansbach and Bayreuth, sent to support Great Britain in the American Revolutionar ...

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Friedrich Schelling, David Friedrich Strauss, and Johannes Kepler studied in Tübingen at the Tübinger Stift, and Joseph Alois Ratzinger (former alreedy Pope Benedict XVI) held a chair in dogmatic theology at the University. Hermann Hesse worked in Tübingen as a bookseller trainee from 1895 to 1899... and the list can continue :) as I said the good, old, stylish lady named Garmany and her magic people and places.

Wisdom in Creation 1 Kings 4:29–34This passage is a celebration of God’s endowment of great wisdom upon Solomon. It also celebrates the broader theme of God’s ordering of creation according to a majestic, divine design. God has infused his wisdom, as it were, into the very structure of material reality. And he has equipped the human race, created in his image, with the ability (the intellectual machinery) to, as German mathematician Johann Kepler (1571–1630) said, “think God’s thoughts after him,” in order to develop creation’s potential (note especially 1Ki 4:32–33). We as God’s designated stewards have been called to faithfully and intelligently cultivate creation’s potential. God wants us to varying degrees, based on the particular aptitudes and strengths with which he has gifted each of us, to draw out the fruitfulness of creation through engineering, entrepreneurship, development, intellectual understanding, the arts and so forth. Bible scholar J. Richard Middleton depicts God t ...
By David d'Escoto The following is part one of an unedited article is my response to a blog written be a parent who has decided to "raise her children without God" (see her article  @ ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-910282 ):       Do you remember the first time your young mind conceived the idea of there being a God? I was about age 4 or 5 when the thought first entered my mind and naturally all my questions were directed to my parents. Questions like, “Who made God?”, and “How long has God lived?”, and “Who made the world?” Thank goodness my parents were honest enough with me to give me answers that satisfied my budding curiosity. It is sad to see so many disingenuous parents today who when asked similar questions about God refuse to share all the facts.   Last month I read an article that was written by a mother who was a self-proclaimed atheist in which she gave several reasons why she is choosing to raise her children without God. My first response was to write a response direc ...

Amen."
Some people say that love makes the world go round, but... actually, its conservation of angular momentum. When a mass is trapped in the gravitational field of another body, a set of equations from Johann Kepler tell us that cirtain stable orbits can result. When this happens, as is the case with our planet, the momentum that the planet had continues until something steels it away. Shame... that's just so unromantic...
I am merely striving to think God's thoughts after Him. (Johann Kepler, German Lutheran scientist, 1541-1630)

Johannes Kepler wrote: "I thank Thee, my Creator and Lord, that Thou hast given me this joy in Thy creation, this delight in the works of Thy hands; I have shown the excellency of Thy works unto man, so far as my finite mind was able to comprehend Thine infinity; if I have said aught of Thy glory, graciously forgive it."
originally posted by Star Trek Voyager Italia Star Trek Voyager Italia Official (translation by google) Researchers at the University of St. Andrew and the Scottish Institute of Scientific Instruments (ISI) in the Czech Republic have developed a microscopic first example of a "tractor beam", finding a way to generate an optical field capable of reversing efficiently pressure of the light radiation on the objects. The new technique could be very important developments in the field of medicine and surgery. Normally, when light and matter interact, the solid object receives a push from the light beam, due to the impact with the photons. The strength of the light radiation was identified for the first time in 1619 by Johannes Kepler, who realized this by noting that the tail of the comet was in the opposite direction to the sun. In recent years, researchers have realized that, although the phenomenon is present in the majority of cases, there are no special conditions in which this force can be reversed. Iden ...

Science's Sacred Cows (Part 3): Determinism "God does not play dice." --Albert Einstein Since my Jan. 2 post, we've been discussing assumptions that science initially embraced, either explicitly or tacitly, only to abandon later as invalid or unnecessary. These include most of the following: dualism, determinism, reductionism, absolute time, absolute space, the principle of locality, materialism and realism. The last post addressed absolute time and space. Today we ring the death knell for determinism, the collateral damage of two revolutionary scientific developments of the 20th century. Let's review them in reverse historical order. "If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants," acknowledged Newton. He didn't name the giants, but it's clear that Galileo and Kepler were among them. Galileo Galilei, the father of experimental physics, laid foundations for the science of motion. Johannes Kepler, the "Protestant Galileo," laid the foundations of celestial mechanics. Both ...

just before you sleep. This day in Earth history: On December 27, 2004, the radiation from an explosion on the surface of SGR 1806-20 reached Earth.[2] In terms of gamma rays, the burst had an absolute magnitude around −291. It was the brightest event known to have been sighted on this planet from an origin outside our solar system. The gamma rays struck the ionosphere and created more ionization, which briefly expanded the ionosphere. The magnetar released more energy in one-tenth of a second (1.3×1039 J) than our sun has released in 100,000 years (4×1026 W × 3.2×1012 s = 1.3×1039 J). Such a burst is thought to be the largest explosion observed by humans in the galaxy since the SN 1604 supernova observed by Johannes Kepler in 1604. Check that out.

Worthy News Brief - December 25, 2012 Friends, shine as a star! Numbers 24:17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. A National Geographic article published a few years ago describing a real celestial event which took place at the time of the birth of Jesus reminded me of Risto Santala’s explanation in his book, "The Messiah in the New Testament in the Light of Rabbinical Writings". He wrote about a conjunction of major planets that took place which could have led the wise men from the east, to Israel. Santala reports that in 1603, Johannes Kepler observed a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation of Pisces; he observed a "new, particularly brilliant and strang ...

What was the "Star of Wonder, Star of Light"? Theologically Driven by Jared Compton One of the major “characters” in the Christmas story is—perhaps surprisingly—a star, one that some wise men follow from the East all the way to Bethlehem. The star makes a brief appearance in Matthew’s gospel (2:2, 7, 9, 10), before passing off the scene (and into nearly every Christmas carol). Have you ever wondered what it was the Magi saw? After all, I doubt they left on holiday every time they saw something peculiar in the sky. (Otherwise, the adjective “wise” would be rather ill-fitting, wouldn’t it?) Well, as far as I can tell, there are four common explanations. First, some think the wise men saw a supernova that left a trail of light in the sky for several days—long enough, at least, to guide the wise men’s journey. There are Chinese and Korean records that indicate that this sort of thing occurred around the time of Jesus’ birth (5/4 B.C.). Second, some think the wise men followed the blazing ...

Assignment paper for a buddy of mine: Why or why not have evolution taught in public schools? I believe it should be taught alongside with Intelligent Design. There are a lot of problems that the theory of Evolution contains, students should have a choice to believe what they what instead of only hearing one side of the story and not hearing any of the problems with Evolution in the text books. We are told the best explanation for “Everything” is the Big Bang. Yet when did “nothing” ever become “anything” in a Lab? You have to start with something. The first Law of Thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only converted from one form to another. So the Universe must be eternal, yet Entropy argues that because it affects everything. Just like life and everything on our planet we see things go from a higher state, to a lower state, we see it affect the universe as well with stars (super novas) yet we have never witnessed a star being born. Even our universe must have ha ...
The Earth's orbit is the measure of all things: circumscribe around it a dodecahedron, and the sphere containg this will be Mars; circumscribe around Mars a tetrahedron and the sphere containing this will be Jupiter; circumscribe around Jupiter a cube and the sphre containing this will be Saturn. Now inscribe within the Earth an icosahedron, and the sphere containd it it will be Venus; inscribe within Venus an octahedron, and the sphere contained in it will be Mercury. You now have the reason for the number of planets. Johannes Kepler, from Mysterium Cosmographicum, 1596, quoted in The Story of Astronomy
Thank you Isaac Newton and Johannes Kepler for ruining my life.
If I could have any historical figure as a homie, it would definitely be Johannes Kepler.
First let point that my capabilities in terms of my practice of the arts of physical science and mathematics is much like my chess: never much beyond the C level in tournament play. But I did train a master. Now here is the nightmare for the NSA. Creative human mentation is banned in that agency. Some two decades ago Freeman Dyson gave as a diversion my friend HMS Coxeter's 59 icosahedra to work on. After three months I did succeed in generating Mathematica graphics for them. When I first arrived at Hannah's Child of Mine Center (see below) I did show the kids pictures of some this output. But we spent most of time constructing Johannes Kepler 's star polyhedra and the compounds of five cubes, five octahedra and twenty tetrahedron etc. with three foot sticks and rubber bands. They played with the results and took home copies made with drinking straws. It was only several months later that one Magnus J Wenninger 's collaborators showed me what the kids had accomplished with their play. They had shown how t ...
Some comprehendtion of the recursive nightmare facing the NSA is indicated by the simple fact that the first hint of the gpm (and even the included Johannes Kepler triangle) was first seen in the perspective of Leonardo. This is not to even mention the exploration of the axis of the universe by Rafael S
Makes you sit and ponder ... your importance in the universe?
We move at 67,000 MPH! And my hair doesn't even get messed up!
I am such a geek. I love astronomy.
Check out that little, insignificant dot. That's us.
This is too impressive not to post. Enjoy the view.

NPR had a story on Tycho Brahe and the possibility of being poisoned by Johannes Kepler! Mercury and not his bladder?
Danish research proves Tycho Brahe was not murdered by mercury poisoning.
So I got to thinking about Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler, which, of course, led me to Brahe's gold and silver nose, which, I could speculate was the basis for an early Ian Flemming novel about James Bond, "Gold Nose."
"I can't believe I tried to just say I was smarter than Johannes Kepler"
BREAKING NEWS... Astronomer Tycho Brahe was 'not poisoned' in 1601 as suspected, says Horatio Caine of Miami CSI. Calleigh Duquesne with the crime lab added that Johannes Kepler is no longer a suspect. Proving once again that open cases are never closed until solved by the CSI.
This Day in 1630. Death of Johannes Kepler, who derived the laws of planetary motion.
Johannes Kepler is my 21st cousin 12 times removed's wife's 9th great uncle!:
"My aim in this is to show that the celestial machine is to be likened not to a divine organism but rather to a clockwork, insofar as nearly all the manifold movements are carried out by means if a single, quite simple, magnetic force, as in the case if a clockwork, where all motions are caused by a simple weight." - Johannes Kepler
I think I have just written up an allegory in which my product's design process follows the life of Johannes Kepler.

‘My dear Kepler, I wish that we might laugh at the remarkable stupidity of the common herd.’ – Galileo Galilei, letter to fellow-scientist Johannes Kepler
On Nov 15, 1630, German astronomer Johannes Kepler died at the age of 58. Check out his on Geni!
In 1630, Johannes Kepler died. He was a German mathematician and astronomer famous for his laws of planetary motion.
Good Morning Sisters & Brothers. Today is the Anniversary of the Birth of the Artist Georgia O'Keefe & Johannes Kepler the Discoverer of the Laws of Planetary Motion. Love & Flowers as We Spin Through Space.
Johannes Kepler died on this day in 1630. He had a job as a cleaner but was sacked for sweeping the same area every night.
The 16th Century Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe is unlikely to have been poisoned, according to a research studying his exhumed remains.
Tycho Brahe apparently NOT murdered by a king ... or Johannes Kepler ... or anybody else!...
Today in Mathematics History - November 15 1630. Johannes Kepler, best known for his laws of planetary motion, died in Regensburg, Germany.
