Johannes Kepler… in the observatory… with poison!

Scientists are exhuming the remains of 16th century astronomer Tycho Brahe in an attempt to determine whether he was poisoned. Some even suspect that it was Johannes Kepler, a sort of assistant of Brahe’s at the time, who killed him.

Frankly, I don’t even know enough about science to understand what clues they can hope to gain from examining what’s left of a guy who died in 1601. But it makes for an interesting story.
