who came up with the laws that described the motions of the planets?

answers:
sparrow say: Newton.

Ronald 7 say: A few different people had parts in it
Copernicus, Sir Issaic Newton and Johanes Kepler to name a few
We are still learning

Tom say: Kepler and finally Newton

Chris Ancor say: Albert Einstein.

The_Doc_Man say: Johannes Kepler is generally credited with the math that described planetary motion. Sir Isaac Newton, however, came up with the laws of gravity that EXPLAINED what Kepler found.

Jeffrey K say: Kepler first. Then Newton discovered laws that explain those orbits.

MysteryGuy say: Well ancient philosopher, proposed everything was in motion and so building on from that great minds pondered over it. Kepler was the first to come up with the laws but i think there was a french mathematician who did experiments before and kepler used his work.

Sharon say: Kepler, 1608 for first two laws, 1618 for third law

aladdinwa say: Sir Isaac Newton

say: Some random guy.

drake say: The laws are descriptions, (of phenomena), which are words that represent something. Isaac Newton, Johannes Kepler, and Einstein are probably the guys you are looking for whom these words were first articulated by. The phenomena themselves have always been as long as planets have been around.

Al say: kepler newton

Brilliant "Skippy" Answer say: Johannes Kepler discovered the Three Laws of Planetary Motion.
Orbits are eliiptial
Equal arcs are corved out in equal trime
and ssquare of the orbit period proportional to the cube of the semimajor axis of its orbit
Amazing that here so many people get it wrong, are half the people trolls?

poldi2 say: Kepler.

CarolOklaNola say: Johannes Kepler and Tycho Brahe, BEFORE Isaac Newton and the laws of motion.

BillM say: Copernicus
