Jester Predicts A Bad Year For BSM Physics
According to Jester, the LHC and efforts to uncover sources of experimental error at OPERA are likely to conclude the year 2012 with the door closed to many past experimental hints of beyond the standard model physics. Superluminal neutrinos, excess top-antiquark asymmetries, excess CP violations in B meson decays, sub-TeV SUSY, and more are likely to be ruled out in the coming year. He sees the medium term future dominated by precision Higgs boson physics calculated to determine the coupling constants of, and confirm the properties of this boson that probably exists at a mass of about 125 GeV and will probably be officially "discovered" in 2012.
