Over at Serkan Cabi's blog he note a really new discovery: http://www.mit.edu/people/cabi/blog/2005/04/su3xsu2xu1-is-special.html. The allegedy "ugly" standard model gorup SU(3)XSU(2)XU(1) has turned up as a distinguished object in pure mathematics. In the theory of Lie superalgebras, which I suppose we'll all have to scarf up now! Feynmann is said to have danced when the new superstring theory seemed to be unique. Would he have danced at this news? I think so.
