TYCHO’S ISLAND
The isle of Hena was the research place where the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe carried out most of his research.

The island was donated to Brahe by the King of Denmark and came furnished with a stock of optical instruments and a large stock of islanders, who were recruited for work in the newly built observatories.

Tycho Brahe’s planetary research proved incorrect, the King lost his favour and the people turned against him.

This seemingly perfect arrangement is a cautionary tale
