During this talk we will look at the work done by two of the giants of astronomy in our history books: Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler. We will look at their accomplishments in their fields as well as many other aspects of their lives. By looking at who these historic figures were as multidimensional people we can gain a better appreciation for their contributions to our knowledge. Kepler may be the more commonly known figure today but it was Brahe who had the authority during his time. The interplay between his belief structure and that of his pupil Kepler is a fascinating story to be told.
