The Plasma Universe is a term coined by Nobel Laureate Hannes Alfven to highlight the importance of plasma throughout the Universe.
See how much you think you know about cosmic plasma below, and then check out Plasma-Universe articles, images and the Plasma Universe Timeline.
What is Plasma? We're familiar with solids, liquids and gases, such as solid ice, liquid water and gaseous steam. But heat atoms more, and they 'split' into free ions and electrons: a plasma.
Where is Plasma? The visible Universe is 99.999% plasma. The Sun is about 100% plasma, as are all stars. Plasma makes up nearly 100% of the interplanetary, interstellar and intergalactic medium. The Earth's ionosphere is plasma.
Why is Plasma So? Plasma react very strongly to electromagnetic forces, and is the dominant force in many cosmic plasmas, e.g. stellar surfaces, active galactic nuclei, interplanetary, interstellar and intergalactic space.
Electrified Plasmas Space plasma moving through a magnetic field generates its own electric current, can act as a unipolar inductor, and conducts electricity better than metals, e.g. the heliospheric current sheet, and Birkeland currents.
Plasma Filaments Strong radial magnetic fields can make a plasma pinch like the hourglass-shaped nebula above; produce characteristic filaments like in the plasma ball; and produce particle beams as seen in the dense plasma focus.
Galaxy Simulations Computer simulations of two interacting Birkeland currents with plasma clouds trapped in parallel magnetic filaments simulate evolving galaxy formations, without the need for dark matter and black holes!
Complex Dusty Plasmas A gas as little as 1% ionized may behave as a plasma (e.g. the ionosphere). In addition to light and friction, dust and grains are charged inside a plasma, and behave as one, such as the Glowing Eye Nebula.
Quasi-neutrality The quasi-neutrality of plasmas, means they tend overall to be electrically neutral. But plasmas can also violate quasi-neutrality, producing charged regions in double layers and particle beams, such as in M87's jet.
Types of Plasmas Plasmas vary according to temperature and density, and have characteristics that scale over many orders of magnitude.
