If you have 16 minutes, you may watch Murray Gell-Mann who was interviewed by CERN's Paola Catapano on January 23rd.
Click here if you see no video above.
Gell-Mann talks about the likelihood of the Higgs mechanism, importance of beauty in physics, the role of it in knowing that his and Feynman's V-A theory was right while 7 experimental papers are wrong, its role in arguing that supersymmetry should also be right.
The supersymmetry discussion begins around 4:00. If you want to be thrilled, don't overlook the following point: right before 7:00, he says that they may be seeing one or two such superparticles. But one should wait for serious announcements of results instead of building on rumors. Very true! ;-)
Still, this is quite a message for some "readers": I just wanted to include a simple proof that those who say that these were just my rumors and that TRF's news are doubtful are plain lunatics. I am not in such a bad company, am I? :-)
I suppose that Gell-Mann's "one or two" refers to "stop or stop and sbottom" and it could still be gluino-mediated production of stops and sbottoms that will be covered by the webcast ATLAS talk next Tuesday at 11:00 am Pilsner Winter Time. So stay as tuned as I will.
The interview was done by Paola Catapano who surely doesn't have to hide from the cameras but they decided Gell-Mann was more charming in this case and I must say he looks almost as fresh as he did during Sidneyfest 2005 when I talked to him.
After supersymmetry, he explains the goals of his/their interdisciplinary Santa Fe Institute.
RIP, Whitney Houston. An obviously premature departure.
