In “Supersymmetry and the Crisis in Physics,” Joseph Lykken and Maria Spiropulu discuss hopes that evidence of supersymmetry, which proposes that all known particles have hidden superpartners, will be found at CERN's Large Hadron Collider within a year's time — and the effects on physics as a whole if it is not. ...That article was in the May issue, so it will be proved wrong on May 1, 2015. Make your bets now, before Kane changes his mind.
Predictions based on such theories should be taken seriously. I would like to bet that some superpartners will be found at the LHC, but I have trouble finding people who will bet against that prediction.
