Group,

I recently read "Heavenly Intrigue : Johannes Kepler, Tycho Brahe,
and the Murder Behind One of History's Greatest Scientific
Discoveries" by Joshua Gilder and Anne-Lee Gilder. I'm wondering what
the historians think of this idea that Kepler poisoned Brahe to get
his data. Kepler certainly seems to have been a prickly individual,
but murder? What say the experts?
