Magnetic monopoles detected in a real magnet

Researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) have, in cooperation with colleagues from Dresden (Germany), St. An-drews (UK), La Plata (Argentina) and Oxford (UK), for the first time observed magnetic monopoles and how they emerge in a real material. They publish this result in the journal Science within the Science Express web site on 3. September. Magnetic monopoles are hypothetical particles proposed by physicists that carry a single magnetic pole, either
