ATLAS still seeking SUSY

ATLAS recently published results of the search for supersymmetric particles, summarized by this graph. The blue region shows large mass ranges for which squarks and gluinos are ruled out at the 95% confidence level. The ATLAS result indicates that if squarks and gluinos (supersymmetric partners of quarks and gluons) exist, they are both much more massive than the top quark. The search goes on as ATLAS and CMS collect more data. Learn more about this result here.
