  • About half way across, in a little clearing hard by the summit of a hill almost entirely shrouded in steaming vapor, surrounded by jungle noises, strange squarks and snufflings, we saw it, on the upper branch of a big, scrubby mango tree: a lone bird of paradise, performing like a consummate professional, with his astonishing repertoire of brightly-colored Vegas-level plumage.

  • Here is also a potential LHC measurement that would, I think, cut a massive big swathe through all the IIB flux models that people (including myself) study: a 1600GeV gluino with 400GeV first generation squarks

  • Hence, if the LHC discovers squarks or sleptons, this entire class of G2 compactifications will be ruiled out!

  • What about the more likely scenario that the LHC finds neither gluinos, squarks nor any other sparticles at all?

  • I know you're too busy concentrating on limiting the squarks to admire the surroundings properly.

  • Now there are squarks as well as quarks, selectrons, photinos, sleptons (the ones that are all crinkled), and even winos (probably these are the ones that follow an indeterminate wandering path through the detectors).

  • One possibility predicted by M-theory is supersymmetry, an idea that says fundamental particles have heavy - and as yet undiscovered - twins, with curious names such as selectrons and squarks.

  • Will physicists see these gluinos, photinos, squarks and winos?

  • According to some theories, a whole list of items that haven't been seen yet - with names like gluinos, photinos, squarks and winos - because we haven't had enough energy to create a big enough collision.
