Obviously, physics lovers everywhere were excited at the announcement that the LHC had verified the existence of the Higgs Boson. As a non-physicist, I like to keep up with what I can regarding the latest developments (that laymen can appreciate). Now, I'm seeing all over news pages about the LHC starting back up again after a 2-year hiatus, and many of them report on the LHC "searching for evidence of parallel worlds". Now, scientific reporting is often sensationalized in the media, and quite often, it doesn't exactly match up with what's really being done.
So my question is: what experiments are currently planned at the LHC, and what specifically are they looking for now?
