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 ...

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 is the current status of string theory (2013)?

I've seen a bunch of articles talking about how new findings from the LHC seem to disprove (super)string theory and/or supersymmetry, or at least force physicists to reformulate them and change ...

What if LHC finds SUSY?

Here and on many other forums and blogs people ask the question "What if LHC does not find SUSY?". I would like to ask the opposite. What if it finds it? What would the implications be? Is it going to ...

SUSY's Critical role in String Theory

In many popsci articles it is claimed that String Theory (ST) birthed SUSY. Yet ST was originally invented as a bosons-only theory, that later on brought fermions into the fold. This was only ...

SUSY and the Large hadron collider

Did the LHC rule out SUSY as a solution to the hierarchy problem ? What's the common belief among theorists regarding the possibility of discovering SUSY in the 2015 run of the LHC ? Did the absence ...

Why should SUSY be expected naturally?

In the last 40 years (approximately) people have been "discovering", "rediscovering" and "studying" SUSY as a powerful tool and "symmetry principle". Question: What if SUSY is not realized in ...

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 ...

What are the consequences of LHC results for supersymmetry?

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 ...

Disproving SUSY

So I get that with SUSY theories you can always move the goalposts. By definition, it is difficult to prove. So what would it take to disprove the theory entirely? What evidence would have to arise to ...

Can a rebranded super-symmetry be consistent with the null results at the LHC

To explain the null results on SUSY at the LHC, it continues to be assumed that the achievement of the energy threshold for the creation of the SUSY partners is beyond the capability of the ...
