Magnetic Monopoles Detected

Physicist Paul Dirac was correct about the Expanding Earth and now it seems he was also correct about magnetic monopoles.

Science Daily: 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.

Results of their research are being published in the journal Science.

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.

Dirac's expanding earth was based purely on his notions of gravity's tendancy to weaken over time. I don't think he offered direct evidence of this weakening, only a framework of the concept (a hypothesis, perhaps).

He never addressed EE in the first place. In the case of weakening of gravity, yes, a planet could expand, this was a "consequence" of Dirac's Large Number Hypothesis dreamed up by Jordan. I don't think for a second he was talking about adding mass.

Besides, isn't gravity a myth? You said so yourself.
