A spin ice is a material where the behavior of the magnetic moments in the material is analogous to the behavior of the protons in water ice.

As a theoretical physicist who worked with Julian Schwinger, a Nobel Prize winner and one of the three founders of quantum electrodynamics, I can assure you that this experimental research has NOT discovered the magnetic monopole first theorized by British physicist, Paul Dirac. Creating localised conditions inside crystals that behave as though they possess magnetic charge is not the same as generating magnetic monopole counterparts of the electron. Science journalists love to exaggerate......
To show Tesla’s intent to give the world cheap clean energy extracted freely from the active medium, here are some appropriate Tesla quotations:
"Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world's machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other of the common fuels." [Nikola Tesla].
"Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe. This idea is not novel... We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who derives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians...Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic – and this we know it is, for certain – then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature." [Nikola Tesla, in a speech in New York to the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1891. Quoted from his biography, Margaret Cheney, Tesla: Man Out of Time].
"We have to evolve means for obtaining energy from stores which are forever inexhaustible, to perfect methods which do not imply consumption and waste of any material whatever. I now feel sure that the realization of that idea is not far off. ...the possibilities of the development I refer to, namely, that of the operation of engines on any point of the earth by the energy of the medium..." [Nikola Tesla, during an address in 1897 commemorating his installation of generators at Niagara Falls.].
"Whatever our resources of primary energy may be in the future, we must, to be rational, obtain it without consumption of any material." [Nikola Tesla, 1900].
Nikola Tesla was ultimately murdered in 1943 when he attempted to make contact with FDR regarding 'energy extraction from the active medium' currently known as the 'vacuum of space-time' (in its virtual state) and ZPE (in the observable state). It was obviously feared that since Einstein was able to influence FDR to mobilize the 'atomic energy paradigm' with a massive 'governmental' effort, then quite possibly Tesla would have enabled just such a program for 'energy from the active medium' currently known as 'Energy From The Vacuum.'
Adam Trombly: "I have never mentioned this before, but when I spoke at the 1981 Conference at the University of Toronto, a detective, an older gentleman from New York, with a heavy New York accent, approached me afterwards and said that he was a detective at the time when Tesla had been found dead, and said he was involved with the investigation.
He said for National Security reasons, that nobody was to know that the Coroners report had indicated he had been poisoned.
I have never personally read the Coroner’s report, but the man was about the right age. He showed me a badge and I had no reason to doubt this man who had come all the way up to Toronto from New York, just to tell somebody after all those years.
The Coroner’s report did say he had been poisoned. Now it turns out that the only medium to my knowledge it actually cites that Tesla had been poisoned is the Yugoslavian film on Nikola Tesla called, "The Secret of Nikola Tesla." So everybody can rewatch the introduction, because they say it right at the beginning. And they also say perhaps that he was killed by the Nazi’s."

Also, the military has known about this for a very long time. It is just far too simplistic for them to have overlooked.
They may be dumb, but they are not That dumb.
Nice to hear they are finally admitting it to the public though! Only 500 more years of being milked dry before they let us actually use it
