Paper Abstract

The standard (old) cosmological model ΛCDMHC is flawed by fluid mechanical simplifications of the Jeans 1902 theory of gravitational structure formation. Corrections result in HydroGravitational Dynamics (HGD, new) cosmology and early, cosmos-wide, life termed the biological big bang. Kinematic viscosity, turbulence and diffusivity as well as fossil turbulence and fossil turbulence waves of new cosmology require early and massive plasma-epoch fragmentation by voids. Old cosmology gives no stars or planets for 400 million years (the dark ages) and can only result in extremely rare, intermittent, and highly localized life, if any, with no cosmic distribution mechanism. At the plasma to gas transition time 300,000 years, new cosmology produces 30,000,000 planets per star in dense, Jeans-mass, proto-globular- star-cluster clumps (PGCs) that host the formation of stars by planet mergers. Supernovae seed the small hydrogen planets with oxides to form deep-water oceans, giving life at two million years and evolved complex life in freezing cold oceans by eight million years. Cosmic distribution of HGD life is assured by jets from supernovae and active galactic nuclei. Old biology becomes a new extraterrestrial cosmic biology. Herschel-Planck-Spitzer-WMAP space telescope images show these PGCs by the infrared light of their planet mergers.
