Summary ã eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Johannes Kepler

Ioh Keppleri Mathematici Olim Imperatorii Somnium seu Opus Posthumum de Astronomia Lvnari Ì Somnium Latin for The Dream is a fantasy Mathematici Olim PDF #10003 written between and by Johannes Kepler in which a student of Tycho Brahe is transported to the Moon by occult forces It presents a detailed imaginative description of how the earth might look when viewed from the moon and is considered the first serious scientific treatise on lunar astrono. I have just finished some basic research about this book by Kepler Many consider Somnium as the very first piece of science fiction which is utterly wrong Kepler himself got inspired by Lucian's text entitled A true story 2nd century and that already talks about outer space aliens and interplanetary issues Further Kepler had bought a copy of Plutarch's Face Of The Moon where a figure called Duracotus same character in Somnium is introducedThe form of the text is an interesting one as probably it was written with the intention of sound like a mythtale to perhaps justify his imagination Another hypothesis is that he masked his thoughts in science fiction in order to avoid getting condemned by his views Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake in 1600 9 years before SomniumOverall is a great historical piece of Lunar treatise and should be in the bookshelves of anyone interested in space archaeology science fiction and of course Levania Summary ã eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Johannes Kepler

Johannes Kepler ✓ 7 Characters

Johannes Kepler ✓ 7 Characters My Carl Sagan and Isaac Asimov have referred to it as the Ioh Keppleri Epubfirst work of science fictionSomnium began as a student dissertation in which Kepler defended the Copernican doctrine of the motion of the Earth suggesting that an observer on the Moon would find the planet's movements as clearly visible as the Moon's activity is to the Earth's inhab. Y’all this story is NUTS Johannes Kepler wrote this proto science fiction story in 1608 making it one of the first if not THE first story in the sci fi genre as a means of exploring complex astronomical physical law theories he developed about celestial bodies the moon in particular He was so far ahead of his time in both literary and scientific thinking and the result is this incredible groundbreaking artifact The frame of the story an Icelandic teen is kidnapped and brought to Denmark where he meets and is educated by Tycho Brahe the pioneering real life observational astronomer who was Kepler’s mentor When the Icelandic teen makes it back to Iceland years later he finds his mother who is a witch and tells her about everything he learned about the heavens She then shares her occult knowledge of the heavens and her particular shared interest in the moon Mom summons an Icelandic daemon from myth who agrees to launch them to the moon so they can see it for themselves and they go to check it out and learn about what the moon is like and what there is to be learned about the universe from the lunar surface What’s so crazy about this is a how innovative the storytelling is and b how many mind bending concepts Kepler was speculating about before science had even arrived at them Kepler was writing this 80 YEARS before Newton describes gravity a discovery that rested largely upon Kepler’s earlier work but in Somnium Kepler correctly theorizes gravitation by describing the g force caused by launch from earth He identifies Lagrangian Points in this story 180 YEARS before Lagrange first wrote about the three body problem He writes about temperature decrease and oxygen depletion occurring with gains in altitude way before that atmospheric knowledge was pinned down He writes about how their is no air in space and that humans need tech to breathe I would argue that he even hints at a theory of evolution by describing how different environmental factors in various regions of the moon produced different life forms It’s literally insane that Kepler was out here speculating with such far out ideas that would later prove to be loosely correct I geeked way tf out reading this Truly just a jaw dropping accomplishment
