Magnetic Monopoles Detected In A Real Magnet For The First Time
ScienceDaily (2009-09-04) -- Researchers have for the first time observed magnetic monopoles and how they emerge in a real material. Magnetic monopoles are hypothetical particles proposed by physicists that carry a single magnetic pole, either a magnetic north pole or south pole. In the material world, this is quite exceptional because magnetic particles are usually observed as dipoles, north and south combined.
Oh dear Lord. Folks, the world is about to change. Give it a few years for this to go mainstream and the material science folks to come up with appropriate materials for consumers.
This is a life changing thing. It will affect computing, transportation, space exploration, medical technology, and wow wow wow... I wish I could explain it all to you.
