What It's About

The story of the rise and fall of Uraniborg, the “Heavenly Castle”, a renaissance palace on a small island off the coast of Denmark, designed by Tycho Brahe as a monument to Urania, the muse of Astronomy. Before rockets and satellites, before even the invention of telescopes, Tycho and his company of skywatchers, mathematicians, and mechanics laid the groundwork for a revolution in science by measuring the position of the stars and patiently recording the motion of the planets.
