RE: VMs: Kepler & the VMS
As if by magic, a documentary just appeared on German television (I'm not
in Germany, I read about it in HASTRO-L) describing the claim that Kepler
poisoned Brahe: "Heavenly Intrigue" by G. and A.-L. Gilder.
Brahe death was from the effects of mercury poisoning, but [summarising the
various posts] from the high levels found in his hair post-mortem, it seems
more likely to have been self-inflicted (as a result of his alchemical
experiments) than as a result of intrigue. But who knows?
Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
