Brahe (1546-1601) Meticulously gathered astronomical data which Kepler used to derive his three laws of planetary motion.

He also had his original nose cut off in a duel. He wore a metal one which he attached with glue. It was originally claimed that his nose was made of silver or gold, but when he was exhumed (for some reason) there was green around his skull, suggesting that it was copper.
