Plasma cosmology contradicts the current consensus of astrophysicists that Einstein's Theory of general relativity explains the origin and evolution of the universe on its largest scales, relying instead on the further development of classical mechanics and classical electrodynamics as applied to astrophysical plasmas.
While plasma cosmology has never had the support of most astronomers or physicists, researchers have continued to promote and develop the approach, and publish in the special issues of the IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science that are co-edited by plasma cosmology proponent Anthony Peratt.
Plasma cosmology is not considered by the astronomical community to be a viable alternative to the Big Bang, and even its advocates agree the explanations it provides for phenomena are less detailed than those of conventional cosmology.

 Plasma cosmology - Education - Information - Educational Resources - Encyclopedia - Music
Plasma cosmology is a non-standard cosmological view which relies on the electromagnetic effects of plasma for explaining the large-scale structure of the universe, energy storage, and energy flow between separate areas of the universe, among other things.
Despite the general importance of plasma in astrophysics, and the assertions of the standard model that electromagnetic forces may be important for describing local phenomena, the standard model continues to delineate that these forces are not important at large cosmological distances.
In the mid-1990s, interest in plasma cosmologies was piqued by a limited few in the standard (Big Bang) cosmological community, mostly as a "fallback" theory, in case COBE failed to discover variations in the CMB (cosmic microwave background) or in case primordial helium abundances turned out to be unexplainable by standard cosmologies.

 Plasma cosmology - Definition, explanation
Plasma cosmology is a non-standard cosmological model which attempts to explain the large scale structure of the universe using electromagnetic interactions in astrophysical plasmas.
Plasma cosmology, however, proposes that many cosmological processes that are explained through gravitational physics in Big Bang cosmology are in fact electromagnetic in nature.
Despite the general importance of plasma in astrophysics, and the standard model's use of electromagnetic forces for describing local phenomena, the standard model asserts that these forces are not important at large cosmological distances.

 Cosmology Curiosity: Plasma cosmology 2
Plasma cosmology holds that the universe is eternal and non-expanding.
Plasma cosmology asserts that not all redshifts are due to expansion.
Plasma cosmologists contend that you end up with these sorts of strange concepts because gravity is such a weak force compared to the electric force (the electric force is 10^39 stronger than the gravitational force).

 Theories of the Universe: Plasma Cosmology — Infoplease.com
The advocates of plasma cosmology believe that the evolution of the universe in the past must be explained in terms of the processes occurring in the universe today.
Plasma cosmology supports the idea that because we see an evolving universe that is constantly changing, this universe has always existed and has always evolved, and will continue to exist and evolve for eternity.
Plasma technology has stimulated research for better computer screens, how radio and radar transmission can be increased, and may be the answer to developing the long-sought-after genie in the bottle: fusion energy.

Moreover, plasma cosmology does not provide an answer to the origin of the cosmic background radiation, its isotropy, the universality of the abundances of helium and deuterium or their abundances.
Modern cosmology proceeds from the conservative proposal that the dynamics of the universe are governed by gravity acting on neutral matter at the cosmological scale.
Plasma cosmology says that this is all wrong because they can create an expanding universe by proposing that matter is not neutral, but has a slight charge excess which is undetectable.

 Crisis in Cosmology
An example of a plasma is the arc of a welding torch – free electrons and ions in the hot gas between the electrodes allow electric current to flow, producing heat, light and also radio waves which can interfere with nearby radio receivers.
Plasma cosmologists believe that electromagnetic effects from plasma, which are ignored in conventional cosmology, can explain the effects for which Big Bang theorists are forced to invent never-observed entities such as dark matter and dark energy.
One of the unusual aspects of plasma cosmology is that it predicts a fractal distribution of matter throughout the universe.

emphasize the fact that plasma phenomena discovered in the laboratory and in accessible regions of space, must be important also in the rest of the universe".
Nebulae, are typical examples of cosmic plasma that may feature filamentary structure, electromagnetic pinching, synchrotron radiation, twisting magnetic fields and bipolar jets.
Plasma is "quasineutral" meaning that it tends to be electrically neutral.

 Electric Plasma effects in the cosmos
Plasmas are excellent conductors and, therefore, there will not be a significant voltage drop across them while they are carrying current - thus the need for the presence of the DL that "takes" most of any externally applied voltage.
The electrical conductivity of any material, including plasma, is determined by two factors: the density of the population of available charge carriers (the ions) in the material, and the mobility of these carriers.
In fact, electric currents, flowing in plasmas, have been shown to produce most of the observed astronomical phenomena that are inexplicable if we assume that the only forces at work in the cosmos are magnetism and gravity.

 Cosmology Curiosity: Plasma cosmology 3
It is not true that plasma cosmology offers no explanation for the cosmic background radiation.
There are two extremely important implications of the electric comet hypothesis: first, that the craters on comets and asteroids are the result of electric machining, and second, that comets can acquire the charge of their surroundings as they move through space.
I too am very impressed with all I have read about Plasma Cosmology and the Electric Universe, it seems to make much more sense than resorting to dark energy and matter, fl holes etc. What would be great is to get it into the mainstream media as a sensible discussion.

Plasma cosmology suggests that stars are not thermonuclear objects, powered internally, but rather externally powered by Birkeland currents in a z-pinch.
Plasma events scale, which means if we can produce these effects in the lab, there is no reason that these can't occur at much larger scale, throughout the cosmos.
Because molecular bonding is very much ruled by the electric force, which is billions of times stronger than gravity, and the plasma cosmology paradigm assumes the electric force and NOT gravity is the primary force in galactic structure, it is not surprising to see similarities, and I would doubt it is coincidental.

Plasma physicists know that 96% of the universe is not made up of “invisible matter” but rather of matter in the plasma state.
The hypotheses of these plasma scientists on the subjects of solar, stellar, and galactic behavior are careful extrapolations of their demonstrated experimental results and physical principles.
Interested plasma scientists and electrical engineers have been thrashing out the various hypotheses of Plasma Cosmology in their conferences and publications.

 The "Iron Sun" Debate - Part IV
Plasma cosmology provides the simple answer to the question of how stars are formed.
They are formed by the powerful and long-reaching electromagnetic force of a "plasma pinch", a principle well researched in the laboratory and now observed in detail in high resolution images of planetary nebulae.
According to Hannes Alfvén and other pioneers of plasma cosmology, a stellar system gives way to gravity only after the star is formed and as the plasma pinch subsides.

 Plasma Cosmology, Part I: Interpretations of the Visible Universe - Anthony L. Peratt
As attempts to answer cosmological questions coalesced into systematic worldviews, or cosmologies, encompassing the entire universe, they were inevitably based on fragmented observational evidence, oversimplified assumptions, and incomplete physical theories.
This brought cosmology into direct conflict with geophysics, since geophysicists had calculated that the Earth was more than 3 billion years old.
Today, geophysicists estimate the Earth's age to be 4.7 billion years, and the dominant cosmology, the Big Bang model, calculates the age of the universe to be 20 billion...

 Plasma Galaxies
Computer models of two current filaments interacting in a plasma have, in fact, reproduced fine details of spiral galaxies, where the gravitational schools must rely on invisible matter arbitrarily placed wherever it is needed to make their models "work".
To see the connection between plasma experiments and plasma formations in space, it is essential to understand the scalability of plasma phenomena.
Plasma scientists, for example, are able to replicate the evolution of galactic structures both experimentally and in computer simulations without recourse to a popular fiction of modern astrophysics

Plasma constitutes 99.999% of the matter in the universe.
Plasma researchers have begun their own international meetings on plasma cosmology because they saw objects in deep space that were identical to phenomena seen in their labs.
Plasma cosmology has one great advantage in that the phenomena are scaleable from galaxies down to stars, planets and the lab.

The plasma cosmology approach can easily accommodate large scale structures, and in fact firmly predicts from basic physical principles a fractal distribution of matter, with density being inversely proportional to the distance of separation of objects.
The plasma alternative views the energy for the CBR as provided by the radiation released by early generations of stars in the course of producing the observed 4He.
The energy is thermalized and isotropized by a thicket of dense, magnetically confined plasma filaments that pervade the intergalactic medium.

 Paradoxes Resolved, Origins Illuminated - The Big Bang never happened
The plasma cosmology approach has been supported by thousands of times less resources than has the Big Bang, but it has presented alternative explanations for many of the basic phenomena of the universe, has predicted new phenomena, and has not been contradicted by any evidence.
The plasma cosmology approach can, however, easily accommodate large scale structures, and in fact firmly predicts a fractal distribution of matter with density being inversely proportional to the distance of separation of objects[10].
Plasma is nothing more than electricity without wires, and it is the physical component which affects EMF for example, in the Sun.

It is an effective tactic, in that it prevents plasma cosmology from fairly arguing its case.
whereas you are a self-confessed ignoramus of plasma cosmology.
The fact is that if inflationary cosmology with all its necessary baggage of dark matter, dark energy and a singularity is mentioned in a post, it is perfectly legitimate to point out that there is another scientific theory that can account for all we observe but which requires no dark matter etc in doing so.
