The Higgs boson is the keystone and last undiscovered piece of the so-called Standard Model ... If the Higgs boson does not exist, theorists will have to go back to their blackboards.Strassler, however, felt it necessary to correct this statement to:
The Standard Model Higgs boson is the keystone and last undiscovered piece of the so-called Standard Model ... If the Standard Model Higgs boson does not exist ... it will imply (as has been known for decades) that there must be other particles — perhaps multiple Higgs bosons, and/or perhaps other types of particles — that physicists have not yet discovered, but should be able to discover with the LHC.I hate to break it to you, Dr Strassler, but it IS possible that you are wrong. Yes, completely wrong.
