David Talbott - The Plasma Universe of Hannes Alfven

In the 20th century no scientist added more to our knowledge of electromagnetism in space than Hannes Alfvén(1908–1995). His insights changed the picture of the uni- verse, revealing the profound effects of charged particle move-ment at all scales of observation. 

But recognition never camequickly, and never easily, and mainstream journals typically regarded Alfvén as an outsider, often rejecting his submissions. In retrospect, Alfvén’s dificulties in gaining acceptancecan only highlight the inertia of institutionalized ideas in thesciences, reminding us of the obstacles faced by all of history’sgreat scientific innovators.
