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.

He was equally critical of the specific plans for a nuclear reactor, scorning them as technically unfeasible and misguided. He demonstrated in concrete theories how vast currents and magnetic fields shaped the solar system and the galaxies. If a theory is not acceptable, it does not gain credit by making successful predictions. Lundin, ” Auroral particle acceleration processes: October 19, electrobleme 1.

No Big Bang In Memory Of Hannes Alfven

He is recognized as the Father of the modern field of physics known as Magnetohydrodynamics. Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy.

Peratt proposed a sequence for galaxy evolution: Return to Book Page. He died at the age of Though he was surely not correct on everything he proposed, decades of space exploration eventually confirmed a lifetime of observations and hypotheses, often with implications that many space scientists did not want to hear.


The theme of the piece, written under the pseudonym Olaf Johannesson, was the future takeover of the planet by computers.

Plasma cosmology

This would imply that the role of prediction as a means of evaluating scientific theories has been exaggerated. He was regarded as a person with unorthodox opinions in the field by many physicists, [5]Stephen G.

His thesis was titled “Investigations of the Ultra-short Electromagnetic Waves. All the contradictions with observation stem from cowmic fundamental flaw. Falthammar, Cosmic electrodynamics 2nd edition, Clarendon press, Oxford, 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, to plasmx with the Big Bang theory.

It was later converted to conventional power. In La Jolla my thanks go hanhes 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.

As stated in 1. September 3, February 1, electrobleme. It also explains the presence of the circumstellar disk, formed and held there by electromagnetic forces and not by weak gravity.


All the contradictions with observation stem from this fundamental flaw. His son became a physician, while one daughter became a writer and another a pasma in Sweden.

He was originally trained as an electrical power engineer and later moved to research and teaching in the fields of plasma hannds and electrical engineering. He mentions laboratory experiments of Winston H. Many of them still believe in formulae which we know from laboratory experiments to be wrong.

Hannes Alfven

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. 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.

The idea of ambiplasma was developed further into the forms of heavy ambiplasma protons-antiprotons and light ambiplasma electrons-positrons.
