"Dirac predicted, and we observed" may be a hype, but a team from Tokyo Metropolitan University, Kyoto University, ISSP, NIST, and Kyushu Institute of Technology surely observed "magnetic monopoles", or exactly speaking their mathematical equivalents, as an elementary excitation from the degenerated ground states of the spin ice Dy2Ti2O7. This result has been published in J. Phys. Soc. Jpn., as well as featured in several articles such as Nature News, NIST Tech Beat, Optics and Photonics Focus, 2physcics...
