The model of the plasma universe, inspired by totally unexpected phenomena observed with the advent and application of fully three-dimensional electromagnetic particle-in-cell simulations to filamentary plasmas, consists of studying the interaction between field-aligned current-conducting, galactic-dimensioned plasma sheets or filaments (Birkeland currents). In a preceding paper, the evolution of the interaction spanned some 108-109 years, where simulational analogs of synchrotron-emitting… Expand
Plasma and the universe: large scale dynamics, filamentation, and radiation
One of the earliest predictions about the morphology of the universe is that it be filamentary (Alfvén, 1950). This prediction followed from the fact that volumewise, the universe is 99.999% matterExpand
The Evidence For Electrical Currents in Cosmic Plasma
With the advent of fully three-dimensional, fully electro- magnetic, particle-in-cell simulations, investigations of Birkeland cur- rents and magnetic-field-aligned electric fields have becomeExpand
Electric space: Evolution of the plasma universe
Contrary to popular and scientific opinion of just a few decades ago, space is not an ‘empty’ void. It is actually filled with high energy particles, magnetic fields, and highly conducting plasma.Expand

The current explanation for spiral galaxies is that density waves in a spiral form rotate through the disks of these galaxies, continually forming new arms of hot bright stars and excited gas. TheExpand
Thermalization of synchrotron radiation from field-aligned currents †
Three-dimensional plasma simulations of interacting galactic-dimensioned current filaments show bursts of synchroton radiation of energy density 1·2 ×10 −13 erg/cm 3 which can be compared with theExpand

Supernova 1987A (SN 1987A) is the closest supernova event since the invention of the telescope. It was first seen in February 1987 in the nearby Large Magellanic Cloud, which is a dwarf companionExpand
Advances in numerical modeling of astrophysical and space plasmas
Plasma science is rich in distinguishable scales ranging from the atomic to the galactic to the meta-galactic, i.e., the mesoscale. Thus plasma science has an important contribution to make inExpand
