Scientists are using money taken from the hard work of taxpayers for research into very tiny particles including quarks, muons and gluinos.
I estimate ten or twenty gluinos and a lot of Higgs bosons will be produced in October this year (but not seen unless we are very lucky about the decay signatures).
What about the more likely scenario that the LHC finds neither gluinos, squarks nor any other sparticles at all?
L-Train: Actually I believe Clavelli is best known for his long standing work on the physics of very light gluinos in supersymmetry.
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.
But the large cross section predicted for squarks and gluinos by SUSY theories make a signal quite at reach of the Tevatron experiments, for some values of the parameters.
We’ve given the possibilities seemingly whimsical names: Higgs, squarks, gluinos, Z-primes, Kaluza-Klein gravitons, WIMPS, axi-gluons, etc., but each one serves a purpose in our candidate theories about nature.
