Physicists Finally Made The One-Poled Magnet They've Been Missing For 80 Years

•, Andy Kiersz
Monopoles were first conceived in their modern form more than 80 years ago by Paul Dirac, one of the founders of quantum mechanics.
This discovery has some powerful implications for physics.
Magnets — how do they work?
Every magnet that we have ever observed is a dipole — it has both a north and south pole. If we draw magnetic field lines around a magnet, we always see the lines curve around, joining the two poles.
If you cut this magnet in half, you are not left with one north magnet and one south magnet, but instead two new double-poled magnets.
