His theories and observations led to the development of modern science. He observed a supernova concluding that it was a new star, we know now that it is a star exploding. This observation led him to believe that the heavens are not unchanging like many believed during the time. Not only did he observe things not observed before, his observation had become very important factors in the works of other scientist such as Kepler. Brahe's studies of Mars were used by Kepler to make his model of the planets.
Tycho Brahe was a very important figure in the astronomy world, it was his observations that paved the way to modern astronomy and if his instruments had not been lost, they could have been reproduced today. From his first observations of and eclipse to his models of the universe, Tycho Brahe's observations are still used today to make new discoveries in astronomy and mentioned in science because of the impact they had on the rest of the astronomical world.
