Has the LHC discovered supersymmetry?

Has the LHC discovered supersymmetry?

But after the triumphant discovery of the Higgs boson came … no more new fundamental particles. “I was shocked when supersymmetric particles were not discovered in the early days of the LHC,” Peskin says. Not all theorists were caught by surprise.

What is the latest news from CERN?

World’s most powerful particle accelerator stopped for 2 years for upgrades: CERN. The operation of the particle accelerator will now resume in 2021 after some upgrades and renovations.

Is supersymmetry still possible?

After years of searching and loads of accumulated data from countless collisions, there is no sign of any supersymmetric particle. In fact, many supersymmetry models are now completely ruled out, and very few theoretical ideas remain valid.

Can supersymmetry explain dark matter?

One of the most popular theories to explain dark matter – at the level of individual particles – is known as supersymmetry. As yet, none of the various exotic partner particles predicted by supersymmetry have been seen, but many physicists believe that dark matter could be among them.

What is happening with the Large Hadron Collider?

After Run 3, the LHC will be upgraded again in 2024 to narrow the colliders’ proton beams. This will allow more collisions to take place, increasing the number of collisions from 40 in 2018 to between 120 and 250, NewScientist reported.

Is M theory still valid?

It includes each of the string theories in different physical contexts, but is still valid for all of them. This extremely fascinating picture has led most theoretical physicists to believe in M-theory as the theory of everything – it is also more mathematically consistent than other candidate theories.

Is LHC running now?

CERN has restarted the Large Hadron Collider – and it’s more powerful than ever. The hunt for dark matter is on. After three years of shutdown for maintenance work and upgrades, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been restarted by CERN today to continue scientists’ search for physics’ biggest mysteries.
