Large Hadron Collider (LHC) worked since 10 September 2008 till 14 February 2013. Tevatron worked since 1 December 1970, till 30 September 2011. Enormous resources were spent, but any essentially new results weren’t received. Neither superpartners, nor additional dimensions, neither gravitons, nor black holes, neither dark matter, nor dark energy, etc., etc. weren't found. As for the Higgs, the assertion that the boson found in the 124 - 126 GeV, is this particle, is highly doubtful.
The Higgs field permeates the vacuum of space, which means the mass of the boson and the stability of the vacuum are closely intertwined. The much celebrated particle has a mass of about 126 GeV - light enough to raise fears of instability. Higgs boson could have destroyed the cosmos shortly after it was born, causing the universe to collapse just after the Big Bang.
All well-known elementary bosons (photons, W and Z bosons, gluons) are gauge. In all likelihood, the found by LHC 124-126 particle represents a meson multiplet.
Therefore, it is likely that Run Two of LHC will not bring any new fundamental results, too.
This Special Issue will help authors take the place of failed theories by new ideas:
We invite authors, who are able to remove the Higgs from the Standard Model of physics, to explain the nature of gravity without superstrings, find the cause of dark matter without VMPS and without MACHOs, etc.
