Dirac's monopoles

    Hi everyone,
    I'd be interested to hear about status of a magnetic monopole concept in modern physics.Are there any experiments proposed/carryed out that should indirectly test mm formation? IMO,by the majority in a scientific comunity it's treated just as theoretical byproduct and curiosity without chance that something like that will be ever experimentaly detected.My opinion is similar.Just like an isolated quark ,the "free particle" having a magnetic monople property is illusion.

    Apparantly,the attempts have been made to discover them monitoring HE cosmic rays events.Any success /indication of mm there yet?
    Furtherly,why isn't universe full of heavy mm flying around,that are relic of Big Bang event (should they interact with oposite sign mm ) ?
