# What does the latest $B_s^0\rightarrow \mu^+\mu^-$ results mean for SUSY?

A paper from the LHCb collaboration just came out last week, stating basically that the $B_s^0\rightarrow\mu^+\mu^-$ decay matches standard model predictions, and people are already shouting that SUSY is dead. Is SUSY actually in trouble or is it just hype again?

The models that would be falsified typically require either scalar superpartner masses below 1 TeV or very high values of $\tan\beta$. However, for the values of the masses and $\tan\beta$ mostly believed to be relevant these days, supersymmetry is compatible with the result.
