SUSY Parameter Space Narrows Again

New data from the LHC related to B mesons with strange quarks in them once again is a perfect fit to the Standard Model prediction, while leaving little room for the deviations from the Standard Model predicted by many Supersymmetric (SUSY) theories. Standing alone, it is possible to come up with a SUSY theory that fits the data, but bit by bit the parameter space of SUSY theories is being narrowed by LHC and other experiments in a manner that confirms the Standard Model while making the parameters of any SUSY theory that fits the data look highly fine tuned (a bad thing in a Beyond the Standard Model physics theory, even though it is a good thing in a musical instrument).
