RE: VMs: Kepler & the VMS

Hi everyone,

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.....
