Origin of the Solar System
In the preceding chapters we have seen how drastically in situ measurements in space have changed our views of the properties of cosmic plasmas. It has also been pointed out that these changes are not likely to be confined to the region where the measurements have been made. A plasma has basically the same properties in the magnetospheres as in the laboratory, and it is also likely that the plasmas in regions which are remote in space or in time have basically the same properties as in the present magnetospheres. Hence the conditions at earlier epochs should be treated as extrapolations of the present-day conditions in the magnetospheres (including the heliosphere) and in the upper ionospheres.
