Kepler, a brilliant German mathematician, derived these laws, in part, by studying the observations of the legendarily precise Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. The article on Johannes Kepler gives a less mathematical description of the laws, as well as a treatment of their historical and intellectual context. [[Kepler's laws of planetary motion]]
