As Supersymmetry Fails, Physicists Looking for New Models

LHC-tunnel-SUSY

As the Large Hadron Collider has been unable to find any of the particles suggested by supersymmetry, theoretical particle physicists are trying to change their worldview, away from supersymmetry to theories that could explain the results.

In December, it was announced that the two main experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which is still the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator, had possibly ferreted out the inscrutable Higgs boson. Today, the experiments at the LHC submitted the results of their analyses.

Is The Higgs Boson Trying To Sabotage The LHC?

Two physicists are speculating that the Higgs boson is trying to sabotage the Large Hadron Collider, by going back in time and messing it up so that the Higgs won’t be found. Sounds like science-fiction, but the researchers are quite serious.
