Science Café Cleveland presents


Why we aren't discovering dark matter, black holes, supersymmetry - or anything else exciting - at the world's largest accelerator

The Standard Model of Particle Physics explains what atoms are made of, and what holds them together. Every prediction we have made with it has turned out to be correct. Yet for 40 years particle physicists  have claimed that the Standard Model is  a sick theory and must be cured by adding many additional particles  and interactions.  I'll tell you why they thought so, why I think they're wrong, and what it  means for the Large Hadron Collider and for particle physics in general.
