Rene Decart - the first attempt to reconcile Galilei's and Kepler's ideas.

Rene Decart - is a great French philosopher who was the first to connect the ideas of the greatest Italian physicist and German astronomer. Decart verified Galilei law about inertia and constructed the mechanism of Universe, where all the solids are made more by pushing. Decart system was the first attempt to describe the origin of Universe without miracles and divinely wonders, he scientifically explained the planets turning to one side and in one plane and its coordinated rotation. Young Newton was meditating over Decart's ideas and Newton pointed out the planets as the celestial bodies, which "wandered" near the Sun in any directions. He returned the Space to the hollowness again, which Decart drove out from the Universe.
