SIMON SPIES & JANNI: Holmens Kirke, København, 11. maj 1983.Kjolen i silke, tyl, kniplinger og blonder kostede 175.000 DKK, vejede 25 kilo og var meget opsigtsvækkende og typisk for 80'erne - netop som prinsesse Dianas. Og akkurat som prinsesse Diana druknede Janni lidt i den store kjole med de mange detaljer og knapper. Jannis brudekjole er for øjeblikket udstillet på Sophienholm sammen med en række af Jean Voigts andre couturekjoler. Simon Spies døde året efter.

Tycho Brahe - astronomer genius,  hot head. His celestial observations w/out a telescope laid the groundwork for modern astronomy. Fought a sword duel with another mathematician over some calculations - and lost his nose. He made a fake nose for himself from brass and putty, using a special cement to keep it in place, which worked well until he sneezed. His body was recently exhumed for study.

After 400 Years, Still Hot on the Trail

A team of scientists from the Czech Republic and Denmark exhumed the body of Tycho Brahe, the astronomer revered in both countries whose death remains a mystery.
