Transcript of Johannes Kepler

Johannes Kepler Johannes Kepler was a German astronomer and mathematician. He discovered the three laws of planetary motion. Kepler was born on December 27, 1571 he passed away at age 59 in 1630. He also discovered that planets travel at different speeds in their orbits around the sun. His first law states that every planet follows an elliptical path around the sun. Kepler’s second law states that planets move faster when they are closer to the sun. Kepler’s third law states that the square of a planet’s period is proportional to the cube of its average distance from the sun. Kepler earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Tubingen in 1588 and a master’s degree from the university in 1591. Sources: Findlen, Paula. "Kepler, Johannes." World Book Student.
