Zometool Kepler's Kosmos was inspired by German mathematician, astronomer and astrologer Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) who believed that the relationships between the 5 platonic solids governed the order of the universe. He believed the planets were arranged in their orbits through the relationships between the 5 "perfect" three-dimensional forms: the Platonic Solids.
