Dirac's Large Number Hypothesis, when coupled with Bertrand Russell's concept of a plenum yields an ineresting new concept for a plenum-type aether    a firmament    which, though finite in exent and in time, physically behaves as if it were infinite and uncreated (that is, as a true plenum). Many of the physical constraints required of the firmament are found amont the best established observations of quantum mechanics. Some of the physics characteristics of the firmament are discussed.
