We state that, if the SUSY-GUT paradigm holds, the mass of lightest gluino or higgsino cannot be larger than about 20 TeV. Such a limit is strongly dependent on the measurement of the strong coupling at the electroweak energy scale and on the proton decay limit.While this bound is impossible to reach at the LHC, it suggests and attainable energy scale at which SUSY theories could be disproved.

SUSY-GUT Upper Bound For Energy Scale Proposed
An analysis of the latest data from the LHC proposes that there is an upper bound on the mass of the lightest supersymmetric particle of about 20 TeV (ten to a hundred times current exclusion levels of the minimum mass of such particles).
