Danish astronomer, mathematician, and alchemist, he coined the term "nova" (as in supernova) and established a giant observatory called Uraniborg, where he studied the movements of celestial bodies. Tycho Brahe lost the bridge of his nose in a sword duel against another Danish nobleman, Manderup Parsberg, in 1566; thereafter, he wore a false nose made of brass. He never formally married the mother of his eight children, and kept a pet moose that died after it drunkenly fell down the stairs of Brahe's castle.
