What Will Next Breakthrough Be?

  1. Jan 3, 2007 #1
    So does anyone have any idea what the next big breakthrough will be, that will advance our understanding of physics? Where is a breakthrough needed?

    Will it be the Large Hadron Collider finding the Higgs boson, or maybe them not finding it?

    Or is there nothing really much left to find, and no major advancements to be made? Is everything major already all figured out, and there is no remaining unknown or hidden physics to find?

    What about that meson decay news, where they found that the particle-antiparticle decay rates had some parity violation? That was unexpected, right? Did it help answer existing questions, or did it create more questions? I read that it helped to answer existing questions on why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe.

    What about experimentation with the Vacuum? Will we learn of anything amazing and new by probing that?

    What is left to make headway on?
