Sophia Brahe (1556-1643)
Art by Carolyn Bernhard (website, tumblr)
Tycho Brahe was one of the most important astronomers of the sixteenth century. The last major astronomer to work without the aid of a telescope, Tycho built his own instruments to track the movements of celestial bodies. His work paved the way for Johannes Kepler’s laws of planetary motion.
Tycho’s younger sister Sophia assisted him in his scientific observations. Their family was part of Denmark’s high nobility and although the Brahe children were well educated, their parents did not consider science an appropriate field for people of rank. Nevertheless, Sophia taught herself astronomy and as a teenager helped her brother observe a lunar eclipse. Throughout their lives, Tycho and Sophia maintained a close correspondence.
Sophia also studied alchemy, horticulture, and chemistry, but her most lasting individual work is her genealogy of Danish noble families. Published in 1626, it remains an important source for Danish historians today.

Just a good ol’ hat never meanin’ no harm
Beats all you’ve ever saw, been in trouble with the law
since the day it was worn
Straight’nin’ the curve, flat’nin’ the hills
Someday your sister might wear it, but your pa never will
Makin’ it’s way the only way it knows how
That’s just a little more hat than the law will allow
Just a good ol’ hat. Wouldn’t change if it could
Fightin’ the system like a trucking’ Robin Hood
This hat is now for sale on line
You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
