Grammar mistake: Change "5 times more accurate than the best measurements" to "5 times more accurate than the best of any other measurements". 173.64.120.19 (talk) 01:05, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Isn't this meaningless? Shouldn't it be that the error is five times smaller? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.52.124.254 (talk) 16:21, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Incorrect quote source regarding cause of death[edit]

In the Illness, death, and investigations section there is a quote stating Tycho Brahe "most likely died of a burst bladder". Due to the structure of the sentence this quote appears to come from the team who analysed samples from his exhumed body (a quote earlier in the same sentence comes from the lead of the investigation). This quote actually come from a scientific journalist reporting on some results from that team (according to the citation).

Hello fellow contributors,

I would like to draw attention to the following paragraph under section "The Tychonic cosmological model". Currently it states: Kepler, as well as other Copernican astronomers, tried to persuade Tycho to adopt the heliocentric model of the solar system. Tycho advocated for a system with an immobile Earth for both scientific and religious reasons. But Tycho was not persuaded.

I'm not sure if the entire paragraph originates from reference 73, but the sentence structure is confusing. I suggest the following correction: Tycho advocated for a system with an immobile Earth for both scientific and religious reasons. Kepler, as well as other Copernican astronomers, tried to persuade Tycho to adopt the heliocentric model of the solar system, but Tycho was not persuaded.

This correction would clarify the flow of the idea presented since the original contrasting statement "But Tycho was not persuaded" is in response to a statement two sentences prior, which leaves ambiguity as to what is being contrasted (i.e., Was Tycho not persuaded by his own advocated idea?) I believe using "Kepler...tried to persuade Tycho to adopt...the solar system, but Tycho was not persuaded" flows easier.

 Done. The description of Tycho's view is a reiteration of the above paragraph so I have removed it, but I have implemented your request in regard to the flow of the sentence. Hrodvarsson (talk) 00:34, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

Regarding this edit, you're right. Thanks for correcting me. (I'm not pinging you for reasons known to both of us). Kbb2 (ex. Mr KEBAB) (talk) 18:06, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Danish version[edit]

The Danish version has his birth name written as Thyge, not Tyge that we see here and on the French version (and everywhere else I've seen). Anyone care to "investigate"? Thanks! CielProfond (talk) 23:47, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
