Kepler planned to test his theory [27] from Mysterium Cosmographicum based on the Mars data, but he estimated that the work would take up to two years since he was not allowed to simply copy the data for his own use. With the help of Johannes Jessenius , Kepler attempted to negotiate a more formal employment arrangement with Tycho, but negotiations broke down in an angry argument and Kepler left for Prague on 6 April. Kepler and Tycho soon reconciled and eventually reached an agreement on salary and living arrangements, and in June, Kepler returned home to Graz to collect his family. To that end, Kepler composed an essay—dedicated to Ferdinand—in which he proposed a force-based theory of lunar motion: "In Terra inest virtus, quae Lunam ciet" "There is a force in the earth which causes the moon to move".
