TAAS GENERAL MEETING 

SATURDAY, APRIL 8th, 7:00PM 

SCIENCE AND MATH LEARNING CENTER, UNM CAMPUS 

"KEPLER!-  HIS WORK AND GENIUS EXPLAINED" - Dr.  Barry Spletzer

Johannes Kepler was truly a lone genius who changed our understanding of the cosmos.  He discarded millenia of tradition and dogma, struck out on his own path with unparalleled insight and discovered the laws governing planetary orbits, thus helping to launch the scientific revolution. 

Yet little is written about his work--much that is written concentrates on his mother being accused of witchcraft and accusing him of murdering his boss.  In this presentation, Spletzer will attempt to set the record straight, discussing the false starts, incredible persistence, and final success of this amazing man.  Oh, and along the way, he invented something that's part of every amateur's telescope today!
