No supersymmetry

    maybe no supersymmetry...

    "The new result deals a significant blow to many new physics theories, most notably supersymmetry, a favored idea that suggests each known particle in the Universe has a supersymmetric twin particle that has yet to be discovered"

    "Although some basic models of the theory have been ruled out by the latest measurement, more-complex models predict a small electric dipole moment that could be hiding in the range physicists have yet to search. “You can endlessly make models of supersymmetry,” says Eugene Commins, an emeritus professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, who led the last search for the dipole moment in atoms. “A good theorist can invent a model in half an hour, and it takes an experimentalist 20 years to kill it"
