The elusive magnetic monopole may well have been found by J.Morris, A.Tennant and others at the Helmholtz Centre & elsewhere. The graphic shows how magnetic monopoles can exist at the end of tubes – called Dirac strings – that carry magnetic field.

MMs carry magnetic charge and were theorized to exist by the great Paul Dirac in 1931.

If only Paul Dirac could have lived to see the day!

Sounds like a lot of people are taking credit for this discovery. I wonder who made it first.
