Magnetic Monopoles Detected In A Real Magnet For The First Time

Magnetic Monopoles Detected In A Real Magnet For The First Time

ScienceDaily (Sep. 4, 2009) — Researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie have, in cooperation with colleagues from Dresden, St. Andrews, La Plata and Oxford, 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. However there are several theories that predict the existence of monopoles. Among others, in 1931 the physicist Paul Dirac was led by his calculations to the conclusion that magnetic monopoles can exist at the end of tubes – called Dirac strings – that carry magnetic field. Until now they have remained undetected.

Love and hate have a mathematical relationship: Permalink to this paragraph

hate = love + betrayed Permalink to this paragraph

A phrase has been percolating in my mind for unhealthy chunk of time.

“You’ve crossed the thin line between love and hate”.

long story; don’t ask. just like the similarities between the two.

PS: I use to not understand why people say don’t be callous with the feelings of other people, I probably am a douche, basta damn!
