    Yes... maybe... if they exist, and depending on which version of supersymmetry you prefer. It's hoped that we might see hints of an "LSP" (lightest supersymmetric partner), which is most likely the...

    LHC set a record of 13 TeV collision energy today. The previous record was 8 TeV, which was the LHC's max before they shut down to upgrade two years ago. The maximum was supposed to be 14 TeV, so...

    The Jamaican victory will be exclusively because of Bolt? Wow, what confidence you have for the rest of your team. Besides, Bolt was clearly present at their last encounter, and I don't recall...

    I think it's realistic to think that the US men's team can grab 4x1 gold. There's a big talent pool putting in a lot of good early season times. Jamaica could challenge, if they invent a time...

    That's why I chose 15-35C as a range. As you say, there are physiological/psychological factors that come into play beyond the aerodynamics. It's not that I'm ignoring those, it's just that --...

    De Grasse set a new Canadian 200m record this evening with a 20.03 (-0.1) qualifiying time at the PAC12! The next fastest qualifiying was 20.69 (+0.1). Look for an easy sub-20 in the finals.
