Abstract : The general aspects of the Dirac monopoles are discussed. A novel experiment is proposed by means of which one could prove the existence of the monopoles with magnetic charge g = 137 e provided that the cross section for their production is larger than 10 to the -38th power sq. cm above the required threshold energy.
