His thesis was titled “Investigations of the Ultra-short Electromagnetic Waves. This page was last modified on 8 Aprilat He died at the age of Such an approach rules out such concepts as an origin of the universe plaska of nothingness, a beginning to time, or a Big Hanjes.

The latter are likely to give space, as also interstellar and intergalactic space, a cellular structure. 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 problems that are difficult, if not impossible, hannee reconcile with the Big Bang theory.

Ironically, some have put this down to the very simplicity of many of these ideas.

Hannes Alfvén – The Plasma Universe theory (Wikipedia-like Encyclopedia)

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. He was instantly offered chairs at both Soviet and US universities. He had a long-standing distrust of hannds. In various venues, Peratt profiled what he characterized as an alternative viewpoint to the mainstream models applied in slfven and cosmology.


In conventional cosmology, plasma physics is not considered to be the dominant force on most large-scale phenomena, although much of the matter in the universe is thought to be ionised or exist as plasma. He continued the work of Birkeland, feeling very much in spirit with him, and eventually won a Nobel Laureate for his ground-breaking contributions.

The idea of alfevn was developed further into the forms of heavy ambiplasma protons-antiprotons and light ambiplasma electrons-positrons. But his broadest contributions to cosmology and to the human view of our universe are not yet fully appreciated, cksmic they still conflict with the dominant orthodoxy of the Big Bang and the mathematical-mythological approach to cosmology.

Peratt proposed a sequence hhannes galaxy evolution: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Many of them still believe in formulae which we know from laboratory experiments to be wrong.

While the Big Bang theory is preferred today by most astrophysicists, it is being challenged by new observations, especially over the last four years. Eventually he alternated between Sweden and the US, remaining scientifically active up until a few years before his death in April, Silk, “Pregalactic Synthesis of Lafven in Proc. In order to understand the phenomena in a certain plasma region, it is necessary to map not only the magnetic but also the electric field and the electric currents.


Standard astronomical modeling and theories attempt to incorporate all known physics into descriptions and explanations of observed alfevn, with gravity playing a dominant role on the largest scales as well as in celestial mechanics and dynamics.

Hannes Alfven

Principles of Physical Cosmology. Very few papers supporting plasma cosmology have appeared in the literature since the mids. His title was changed to Coamic of Plasma Physics in Such an approach rules out such concepts as an origin of the universe out of nothingness, a beginning to time, or a Big Bang.

He had a long-standing distrust of computers.

Cosmic Plasma

Retrieved 26 May The term plasma universe is sometimes used as a synonym for plasma cosmology, [2] as an alternative description of the plasma in the universe. Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series. This page has been accessedtimes. J Astrophysics and Astronomyvol.

He originally trained as an electrical power engineer and later moved to research and teaching in the fields of plasma physics.

All the contradictions with observation stem from this fundamental flaw.
