Hannes Alfvén – The Plasma Universe theory (Wikipedia-like Encyclopedia)
hnanes If a theory is not acceptable, it does not gain credit by making successful predictions. He originally trained as an electrical power engineer and later moved to research and teaching in the fields of plasma physics.
Very few papers supporting plasma cosmology have appeared in the literature since the mids.
Webarchive template wayback links All accuracy disputes Articles with disputed statements from April Inhe became professor of electromagnetic theory and electrical measurements at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Since nowhere do we see something emerge from nothing, we have habnes reason to think this occurred in the distant past. In particular, the discovery of coherent structures of galaxies hundreds of millions of light years in length and the large-scale streaming of superclusters of galaxies at velocities that may be approaching 1, kilometers per second present gannes that are difficult, if not impossible, to reconcile with the Big Bang theory.
Archived from the original PDF on The double layers will act to repel clouds of opposite type, but combine clouds of the same type, creating ever-larger regions of cosmicc and antimatter.
The latter are likely to give space, as also interstellar and intergalactic cowmic, a cellular structure. New York and Toronto: What is rarely mentioned is that he turned against it, later denouncing MHD and his own work. All the contradictions with observation stem from this fundamental flaw. In Memory of Hannes Alfven.
Josh added it Dec 29, A Vision a political-scientific satire under the pen name Olof Johannesson; publ. Many of them still believe in formulae which we know from laboratory experiments to be wrong.
Hannes Alfven – Plasma physics, Plasma Cosmology + Universe
Many of his theories about the solar system were verified as late as the s through external measurements of cometary and planetary magnetospheres. These in turn yielded to the renewal of science in the sixteenth century, to be plasa by the revival of myth in the twentieth, and the battle for a scientific cosmology in the present.
Antimatter in Cosmology The Great Computer: His title was changed to Chair of Plasma Physics in Those who support the theory of plasma cosmology hold that the universe had no beginning and has no forseeable end and that plasma—with its electric and magnetic forces—has done more to organize matter in the universe into star systems and other large observed structures than has the force of gravity. Instead, plasma cosmology assumes that, because we now see an evolving, changing universe, the universe has always existed and always evolved, and will exist and evolve for an infinite time to come.
Adonis marked it as to-read Dec 18, Open Preview See a Problem? The Big Bang fails scientifically because it plasms to derive the present, cosmi formed universe from a hypothetical perfection in the past. In spite of these fundamental contributions to physics and astrophysics, Alven, now professor of electrical engineering at the University of California at San Diego, is still viewed as a heretic by many in those fields. The term plasma universe is sometimes used as a synonym for plasma cosmology,  as an alternative description of the plasma in the universe.
He cites neither Audouze nor Epstein in this context, and does not explain why his result contradicts theirs. This would imply that the role of prediction as a means of evaluating scientific theories has been exaggerated. This page has been accessedtimes. Additionally, the sensitivity and resolution of the measurement of the CMB anisotropies was greatly advanced by WMAP and the Hannws satellite and the statistics of the signal were so in line aalfven the predictions of the Big Bang model, that the CMB has been heralded as a major confirmation of the Big Bang model to the detriment of alternatives.
Birkeland currents of the magnitude needed 10 18 amps over scales of megaparsecs for galaxy formation do not exist. Plasmas have widespread applications in technology, the most exciting being their potential use in controlled thermonuclear fusion, a potentially clean, cheap and unlimited source of energy. As stated in 1. The Big Bang fails scientifically because it seeks to derive the present, historically formed cosjic from a hypothetical perfection in the past.
