Johannes Kepler was a German Mathematician, Astronomer & Astrologer who discovered the “Laws of Planetary Motion.”  He was born in 1571 during very turbulent times and his family life doubled up on that stress.  But meanwhile he was one of the greatest Scientists who ever lived.

Kepler’s family situation was whacked out beyond compare. His Father was a mercenary soldier who left home when Kepler was 5 years old. He never saw him again. His mother was a Healer/Herbalist who was tried for Witchcraft when she was in her 70s. Kepler had to quit his job in order to defend her. This story is written about in a book by James A. Connor called Kepler’s Witch: An Astronomer’s Discovery of Cosmic Order Amid Religious War, Political Intrigue and the Heresy Trial of His Mother. Here’s a link to the first Chapter: http://www.harpercollins.com.au/global_scripts/product_catalog/book_xml.asp?isbn=0060750499&tc=cx).
