Magnetic Monopole created with help of Bose-Einstein condensate

Recommended Posts

We are truly living in amazing times.  A magnetic monopole  has been created with the aid of a Bose-Einstein condensate.  Please see


No natural magnetic monopole has ever been observed but it is thought they might have existed briefly at the moment of the (so-called)  Big Bang.

Dirac predicted such particles 80 years ago.  He also predicted anti-particles on a purely mathematical basis.  Here is one instance where the theoretic physicists got out ahead of the  applied physicists.

This…is…so…cool! We've found the Higg's boson, we've found magnetic monopoles, and now we need to find the graviton!

Getting a graviton will not be easy.  It has to be a natural boson for it to explain gravitation.  So far no luck.  No one has observed a spin 2 boson yet....
