What are some falsifiable predicted consequences of SuperSymmetry?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Clearly, if super particles are found, people can rejoice in this new fundemental knowledge of nature. But if it turns out to be a incorrect alley that some theorists journeyed down, do we at least have a way to prove this to ourselves?

------------

And while this is an extension to the main question: in a more general context, given that symmetries can be spontaneously broken, how can we rule outanysymmetries?

For example, the standard model lagrangian is parity invarient, yes? but due to spontaneous symmetry breaking, the empty vaccuum itself (the 'ground state') violates parity invarience, and this can and has been seen in experiments via weak decay measurements, no? So how can we rule out symmetries? What symmetries have been ruled out conclusively ... or so far does it seem possible (albeit unlikely) that nature is fundementally "maximally symmetric", having every symmetry we can come up with?
