Choose the best answer to the following. Explain your reasoning with one or more complete sentence.
Tycho Brahe’s contribution to astronomy included (a) inventing the telescope. (b) proving that Earth orbits the Sun. (c) collecting data that enabled Kepler to discover the laws of planetary motion.
Step 1 of 2
Tycho Brahe could not properly explain planetary motion. He therefore recruited Johannes Kepler, a young and talented astronomer to accomplish his unfinished work. Kepler started working on Tycho’s observations and found that planets follow elliptical orbits while moving about the sun.
