Progress in laboratory studies of plasmas and in the methods of transferring the results to cosmic conditions, together within situ measurements in the magnetospheres, are now causing a ‘paradigm transition’ in cosmic plasma physics. This involves an introduction ofinhomogeneous models with double layers, filaments, ‘cell walls’, etc.Independently, it has been discovered that the mass distribution in the universe is highly inhomogeneous; indeed,hierarchical. According to de Vaucouleurs, the… Expand
SPACE RESEARCH AND THE NEW APPROACH TO THE MECHANICS OF FLUID MEDIA IN COSMOS
Space research has increased our knowledge of fluid media in space in two ways. 1 It has made it possible to SEE our cosmic environment not only in visual light and radio waves but also in infrared,Expand
Beta limitation of matter-antimatter boundary layers
A model has earlier been proposed for a boundary layer which separates a cloud of matter from one of antimatter in a magnetized ambiplasma. In this model steady pressure equilibrium ceases to existExpand

The Diffuse Light of the Universe
In 1965, the discovery of a new type of uniform radiation, located between radiowaves and infrared light, was accidental. Known today as Cosmic Microwave background (CMB), this diffuse radiation isExpand
The cosmic microwave background radiation in a non-expanding universe
During the nineteenth century, it was common for physicists to believe in the existence of a material vacuum composed of an incompressible fluid that fills the whole universe. This fluid was calledExpand

An explanation for the observed scale invariants in the universe is presented. Force-free magnetic vortex filaments are proposed to play a crucial role in the formation of superclusters, clusters,Expand
The cosmic age crisis and the Hubble constant in a non-expanding universe
The present paper outlines a cosmological paradigm based upon Dirac’s large number hypothesis and continual creation of matter in a closed static (nonexpanding) universe. The cosmological redshift isExpand
Non-standard models and the sociology of cosmology
I review some theoretical ideas in cosmology different from the standard "Big Bang": the quasi-steady state model, the plasma cosmology model, non-cosmological redshifts, alternatives to non-baryonicExpand
TRITA-EPP-88-07 HAS THE UNIVERSE AN ORIGIN ?
In the cosmological discussion it has during the last few decades been taken for granted that the Lemaitre-Gamov cosmology usually referred to as the Big Bang is the only acceptable one. The UniverseExpand
The Case Against the Big Bang
Despite its widespread acceptance, the Big Bang theory is presently without any observational support. All of its quantitative predictions are contradicted by observation, and none are supported byExpand

Opinions on the large-scale structure of the early universe range widely from primeval chaos to a well-ordered mass distribution. P.J.E. Peebles argues that the evolution proceeded from a nearlyExpand
