For my professional organization I chose NASA because they are the U. S. government agency that is spearheading the Kepler Project that actually found the planet Kepler 22b that so closely resembles Earth.Kepler 22b is assumed to be very like earth, so we must also assume that there are large water masses and large land masses (Kepler 22b The New Frontier, 2011).Not much is known yet of the composition of Kepler 22b, but it is theorized that it is made of rock and can support surface water.Kepler 22b is in the Kepler star system 600 light years away (Culler, 2011).Kepler 22b is located in the Kepler 22 star system 600 light years away (Culler, 2011).

Instead of forcing his calculations to meld with Brahe’s data, Kepler tried to look at Brahe’s data before making his calculations.With Kepler and Brahe’s data, the heliocentric model was able to get the mathematical precision that lacked the geocentric model.However, Kepler wasn’t able to reconcile his calculations with Brahe’s observations.Over a span of 18 years, using this new found discovery, Kepler formulated his three laws of planetary motion.While Kepler gave mathematical verification, Galileo’s telescopes gave observational confirmation.

As Kepler stated “I think that from the love of God towards mankind, many causes of things in the world may be deduced” (Barker 102).Eventually Kepler declined the job offer, but through Tycho, Kepler was able to meet Emperor Rudolf II and got the opportunity to create the astronomic tables, called the Rudolfic Tables.When Kepler was question why God used geometrical solids as the basis for the plan of the world, Kepler answered that it was because the Creator benevolently wished to provide a means for his creatures to come to know his providential design (Barker 102).Once again, Kepler was able to associate this physics and mathematics of the cosmos, back to theological principles.Thus, Kepler determined that through the geometry he dis...

At the age of twenty-six, Kepler drafted a horoscope of his entire family.When Kepler was only three, Heinrich left to fight the Protestant armies in the Netherlands.Kepler spares no one in his autobiography, least of all himself.Kepler recorded everything, including the time of his conception (May 16, 1571), the length of his mother’s pregnancy (224 days, nine hours, and fifty-three minutes), and his own opinions of each member of his family.This was a public embarrassment for the Keplers – one of many that Heinrich would cause – since the Kepler family itself was solidly Protestant.

It is of no historical importance that Galileo’s theory of the tides was actually wrong: what matters is the thinking and reasoning process that was behind the very plausible theory for its time.On the other hand, Kepler was basing his theory of the tides caused by the moon on pure intuitive deduction.It is no wonder that the likes of Albert Einstein and Steven Hawking have named Galileo Galilei the ‘father of modern science’.In fact, Newton’s proof that it was wrong only again goes to show exactly what Galileo Galilei so strongly stood for: basing theories on experimental observations and mathematical calculations using only facts.What Galileo stood against was the fact that Kepler could not even offer any plausible explanation, in word...

This evidence throws a somewhat uncertainty onto whether Copernican theory is as important as previously suggested.Kepler used mathematics to support and strengthen Copernican theory as well as hypothesising the laws of planetary motion.Galileo again proved Copernican theory by discovering sunspots and the infinity of the universe.I therefore suggest, in response to the question, that there was not one discovery in the renaissance that was more significant than the others, but that the work of these three scientists was equally significant, in that they provided evidence for an astronomical theory, that is still believed today.Galileo became well known, due to his findings with his telescope, whereas Copernicus' and Kepler's ideas were l...

Kepler spent many years not only advancing his ideas about these laws and preparing Tycho’s tables of observation for publication, but also mulling over what he recognized as the great remaining unsolved problem of planetary motion: the motivation whereby the planets revolved around the sun.What this mean is that in a certain time, a planet will travel more quickly along its orbit when it is closer to the sun than when it is farther away from it.Johannes Kepler was born in Wurttemberg in 1571 and died in 1630.This brilliant insight, a major inspiration to Newton, applies to all bodies moving in fields of force, not just planets.It explained most of the discrepancies between astronomical theory and observation.

Science played a major part in brining about change in society’s previous held beliefs and forced the hand of government’s place in society towards the end of the eighteenth century.This new style was known as the Romantic era which later portrayed the emotions of the Revolutionary war and quite possibly the wavering regard of the Enlightenment.It is clear that the scientific revolution had an influence on the role of the Enlightenment.The Enlightenment may have happened later in history or perhaps not at all if not for early notable scientists such as Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, and Newton.The scientific revolution has forever changed us, and its impacts during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries were no less astounding then, then...

In ancient Greek literature pride or hubris as they call it, is the fundamental flaw of man that causes his demise.All these flaws can be summed up to pride.Kepler and Wells advocate the same thing in their works .Wells questions that the Martians’s intent to take over the earth isn’t any different than what the humans has done over animals and even our own species.“And before we judge them too harshly we must remember what ruthless and utter destruction our own species has wrought” (Chapter 1, p. 6).

The new view of the universe and its heliocentric nature shifted the faith of devout religious people away from the church.The great thinkers of this period such as Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Bacon, and Decartes all challenged religion and philosophy when they delved into the world of science and logical thinking.The great scientific and mathematical thinkers of the Scientific Revolution inspired people to change their ways of life and their beliefs.The scientists were so curious about the world and the universe around it that they didn’t stop; they kept making remarkable advances in the society that they lived in.Kepler, Brahe’s assistant, used part of Brahe’s work to mathematically prove Copernicus’ theory to be true.<...

Kepler had discovered the laws of planetary motion which suggested that the planet would move in elliptical orbits, while Galileo followed with his discovery of the principle of inertia.These ancient truths were widely held but were inconsistent with the new observations that they had made.The scientific method was comprehensively utilized during the eighteenth century to study human behavior and societies.In conclusion, the scientific revolution brought dramatic change in the way people lived their lives, and it certainly influenced eighteenth century free-thinking.Much to the dismay of the Church, two astronomers Galileo and Kepler had the audacity to challenge the authorities by suggesting that the sun-not the earth-was at the center ...

Nakaya's real triumph, however, came from growing artificial snow crystals in the laboratory under controlled conditions.In 1611 Johannes Kepler published a short treatise On the Six-Cornered Snowflake, which is perhaps the first scientific reference to snow crystals.-- Kepler, 1611. .Although he doesn't refer to the atomistic viewpoint, Kepler does speculate that the hexagonal close-packing of spheres may have something to do with the morphology of snow crystals.Kepler was astute in recognizing that the genesis of crystalline symmetry was an interesting scientific question, and he also realized that he did not have the means to answer it.

One of Archimedes's major crucial discoveries for integral calculus was a limit that allows the "slices" of a figure to be infinitely thin.These early discoveries aided Newton and Leibniz in the development of calculus.and weighing infinitely thin slices of figures, an idea used in integral calculus today was also a discovery of Archimedes.His one mistake in finding a definite integral was that it is not found by the sums of an infinite number of points, lines, or surfaces but by the limit of an infinite sequence (Boyer 47).For instance, in his Astronomia nova, he formed a summation similar to integral calculus dealing with sine and cosine.
