Hannes Alfven

I have no trouble publishing in Soviet astrophysical journals, but my work is unacceptable to the American astrophysical journals.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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. Space is filled with a network of currents which transfer energy and momentum over large or very large distances. The currents often pinch to filamentary or surface currents. The latter are likely to give space, as also interstellar and intergalactic space, a cellular structure.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have always believed that astrophysics should be the extrapolation of laboratory physics, that we must begin from the present universe and work our way backward to progressively more remote and uncertain epochs.More Hannes Alfven quotes [05/06/2010 12:05:00]
I was there when Abbe Georges LemaƮtre first proposed this [Big Bang] theory. ... There is no rational reason to doubt that the universe has existed indefinitely, for an infinite time. .... It is only myth that attempts to say how the universe came to be, either four thousand or twenty billion years ago.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We have to learn again that science without contact with experiments is an enterprise which is likely to go completely astray into imaginary conjecture.More Hannes Alfven quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
