LHC experiments still not supporting simple supersymmetry theory

by Skibs

Data from the Large Hadron Collider Beauty experiment  were presented during the recent Lepton Photon science meeting in Mumbai. The results failed to support the simple super-symmetry theory, which is causing super-symmetry advocates to investigate new, more complex versions of the theory- or to reject it outright.

Professor Jordan Nash, who is working on one of the LHC experiments, said “The fact that we haven’t seen any evidence of it tells us that either our understanding of it is incomplete, or it’s a little different to what we thought – or maybe it doesn’t exist at all.”
