starship-design: magnetic monopoles

Steve and Kyle,

I noticed your discussion of monopoles.

I'm not yet certain, but a collection of dipoles placed with the south
poles inside the sphere and the north poles placed outside is just that,
a collection of dipoles.  A monopole should have only a single pole,
regardless of where you place your sensors.  A plot of the magnetic lines
of force might help demonstrate this.
