RE: starship-design: Re: magnetic monopoles


If you simply wait a little while you will find that your spherical dipole will 
quickly realign its magnetic fields to produce two EXTERNAL magnetic poles. ANY 
groups of magnets that are truly joined (fused) into a single magnet show this property. The charge distributes (redistributes) itself evenly over the new 
magnet. Even temporarily, a sufficiently sensitive mapping of the magnetic force 
lines will reveal the presence of the (temporary) interior magnetic field.

As Timothy said, you must test and test again before you announce a new 
"discovery". Science is replete with miraculous new discoveries that turned out 
to be something else entirely. However, do not lose hope, just because one idea 
doesn't work is no reason not to try the next one, sooner or later....

"Thomas Godfrey, a self-taught mathematician, great in his way . . . knew 
little out of his way, and was not a pleasing companion; as, like most 
great mathematicians I have met with, he expected universal precision in 
everything said, or was forever denying or distinguishing upon trifles, to 
the disturbance of all conversation."
