Hannes Alfven

Most people today still believe, perhaps unconsciously, in the heliocentric universe every newspaper in the land has a section on astrology, yet few have anything at all on astronomy.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Students using astrophysical textbooks remain essentially ignorant of even the existence of plasma concepts, despite the fact that some of them have been known for half a century. The conclusion is that astrophysics is too important to be left in the hands of astrophysicists who have gotten their main knowledge from these textbooks. Earthbound and space telescope data must be treated by scientists who are familiar with laboratory and magnetospheric physics and circuit theory, and of course with modern plasma theory.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Scientists tend to resist interdisciplinary inquiries into their own territory. In many instances, such parochialism is founded on the fear that intrusion from other disciplines would compete unfairly for limited financial resources and thus diminish their own opportunity for research.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have never thought that you could obtain the extremely clumpy, heterogeneous universe we have today, strongly affected by plasma processes, from the smooth, homogeneous one of the Big Bang, dominated by gravitation.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Gravitational systems are the ashes of prior electrical systems.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
