What are the implications if Supersting theory is discredited? [duplicate]

Please forgive my ignorance, I am not a student of physics in any capacity, therefor my understanding of string theory is extremely limited to say the least. Based on the recent lack of evidence in ...

What experiment would disprove string theory?

I know that there's big controversy between two groups of physicists: those who support string theory (most of them, I think) and those who oppose it. One of the arguments of the second group is ...

What if the LHC doesn't see SUSY?

A question in four parts. What are the main problems which supersymmetry purports to solve? What would constitute lack of evidence for SUSY at the proposed LHC energy scales (e.g. certain predicted ...

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 ...

The future of supersymmetry [duplicate]

Considering the fault of any experimental evidence from LHC for supporting the supersymmetry idea until now, can we say that it is dead? Generally the people who are working on this subject say that ...

How's string theory phenomenology doing these days (2021)?

I've seen one paper that says finding string theory vacua with particular low-energy properties is totally intractable, from a computational complexity standpoint. I've also seen people saying that ...

SUSY as the only way to unify bosons and fermions

Is SUSY really the only known approach to "merge"/unify bosons and fermions in a common framework? BONUS question: If SUSY does exist at high energy, it seems unnatural and "not simple" in the sense ...

Have we ruled out the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM)?

This question is inspired by a Physics Stackexchange question posted 8 years ago (The future of supersymmetry). The question that I have is very similar to the question in the above link, except that ...

No supersymmetric particles have been found in the LHC. Isn't this proof that Supersymmetry doesn't exist? [duplicate]

The LHC can reach energies from $7(TeV)$ to $13(TeV)$ (see here) and the question of which this is supposed a duplicate. Which I think it isn't, because in that question (which has been asked already ...

What are the consequences of LHC results for supersymmetry? [duplicate]

Forgive me my ignorance, I'm just an undergrad. That said, I have listened a couple of talks and lectures in the last years - given by experts in the field - about the future of fundamental ...
