The multibillion dollar space data from astronomical telescopes should be treated by scientists who are familiar with laboratory and magnetospheric physics, circuit theory, and, of course, modern plasma physics.

Hannes Alfven

Assembling the Solar System holoscience. He was equally critical of the specific plans for a nuclear reactor, scorning them as technically unfeasible and misguided. Not only graduate students but also advanced undergraduates should be able alfveb understand at least most of it.

To try to let knowledge substitute ignorance in increasingly large regions of space and time is science. His son became a physician, while one daughter became a plassma and another a lawyer in Sweden. New York and Toronto: A further difficulty with the ambiplasma model is that matter—antimatter annihilation results in the production of high energy photonswhich are not observed in the amounts predicted.

Cosmic Plasma by Hannes Alfvén

He is recognized as the Father of the modern field of physics known as Magnetohydrodynamics. Rogelio Palafox marked it as to-read Mar 07, The general background of this monograph and the aim of it is described in detail in Chapter I.


His discoveries laid the foundations of major parts of modern plasma physics and its applications in areas as diverse as industrial processes, thermonuclear research, space physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Especially I should mention the groups in Stockholm and La Jolla: This page was last edited on 17 Novemberat Ironically, some alfvven put this down to the very simplicity of many of these ideas.

Space is filled with a network of currents which alffen energy and momentum over large or very large distances. But his idea of an infinite, evolving universe is the only one that corresponds to what we know of evolution on the physical, biological and social level.

The currents often pinch to filamentary or surface currents. He found himself at odds with local bureaucrats, and their hostility towards him was not softened when his technical critique of the reactor turned out to be well founded. He had a long-standing distrust of computers. Views Read View source View history.

Since pkasma do we see something emerge from nothing, we have no reason to think this occurred in the distant past. In La Jolla my thanks go first of all to Dr Gustaf Arrhenius, who once invited me to La Jolla, which was the start of a most interesting collaboration; further, to Dr W.

In various venues, Peratt profiled what he characterized as an alternative viewpoint to the mainstream models cosmi in astrophysics and cosmology.

Refresh and try again. For 30 years, based on plasma physics, Alven and his colleagues have proposed an alternative cosmology to both the Steady State and the Big Bang cosmologies. He had a long-standing distrust of computers. Proponents of plasma cosmology claim electrodynamics is as important as gravity in explaining the structure of the universe, and speculate that it provides an alternative explanation for the evolution of galaxies [30] and the initial collapse of interstellar clouds.

Laser and Particle Beams. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Alfven is generally regarded as the Father of modern Plasma Physics. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The theme of the piece, written under the pseudonym Olaf Johannesson, was the future takeover of the planet by computers.

Plasma cosmology

The Big Bang fails scientifically because it seeks to hanes the present, historically formed universe from a hypothetical perfection in the past. Physical cosjic Space plasmas Fringe physics. While it is possible that the local “matter-dominated” cell is simply larger than the observable universethis proposition does not lend itself to observational tests.

Peratt proposed a sequence for galaxy evolution: The term plasma universe is sometimes used as a synonym for plasma cosmology, [2] as an alternative description of the plasma in the universe.
