Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) physics has often been criticised as "speculative", but it is generally accepted that the Standard Model cannot be a as it does not incorporate gravity, etc. Other reasons why BSM physics is required include:

  • The Standard Model requires .

  • The Standard Model has a large number of free parameters.

  • The Standard Model does not include gravity.
