Magnetized plasma cosmology

Magnetized plasma universe – scientist researching plasmas seems to imply how important magnetic fields and plasmas are for most astronomy formations.

“Magnetic fields play important roles in essentially almost every astrophysical phenomena. If you aren’t able to actually look at what’s happening, or study them, you’re missing a key part of almost every astrophysical object or process that you’re interested in,” said Tzeferacos.

NASA announced they are investigating the Magnetic Universe and beyond.

The development of ultra-intense lasers delivering the same power as the entire U.S. power grid has enabled the study of cosmic phenomena such as supernovae and black holes in earthbound laboratories. Now, a new method developed by computational astrophysicists at the University of Chicago allows scientists to analyze a key characteristic of these events: their powerful and complex magnetic fields.

… By focusing powerful lasers on a carefully designed target, researchers can produce plasmas that reproduce conditions observed by astronomers in our sun and distant galaxies … We chose to go after experiments motivated by astrophysics where magnetic fields were important

magnetic fields plasma

Plasma based cosmology more important than gravity cosmology.

Plasma can be accelerated and steered by electric and magnetic fields, which allows it to be controlled and applied. Plasma research is yielding a greater understanding of the universe.

Living in and ruled by the magnetized plasmas Universe.

Plasma and ionised gases have unique properties and display behaviors unlike those of the other states, and the transition between them is mostly a matter of nomenclature and subject to interpretation

Magnetized plasma cosmology.

In this paper, we provide a first-principles description of the nature of the images of magnetized plasmas produced by proton imaging and discuss the implications for gaining information about the morphology and the strength of magnetic fields in high energy density laboratory experiments. Our concern is strictly with the imaging of magnetic fields; we do not treat the imaging of electric fields.

We have shown that in the linear regime (i.e., the small image contrast regime), proton radiographic images of magnetized (non-electrified) plasmas are simply projective images of MHD current.

How does this compare to SAFIRE another project carrying out physical experiments on electromagnetic plasmoids ?

Plasma based universe

Plasma, ionised gas 1 of 4 states of matter, makes up about 99% of observed matter in universe.

Plasma consists of a collection of free moving electrons and ions – atoms that have lost electrons. Energy is needed to strip electrons from atoms to make plasma. The energy can be of various origins: thermal, electrical, or light (ultraviolet light or intense visible light from a laser). With insufficient sustaining power, plasmas recombine into neutral gas.

Electromagnetic forces acting on 99% of our universes material, matters more than gravity.

Plasma (from Ancient Greek meaning ‘moldable substance’) is a state of matter in which an ionised gaseous substance becomes highly electrically conductive to the point that long-range electric and magnetic fields dominate the behavior of the matter

… can only be artificially generated by heating neutral gases or by subjecting that gas to a strong electromagnetic field.
