The Hadron Collider Physics Symposium 2012 in Kyoto will be over tomorow So I'm hoping lots of new data and ideas will filter down through science and tech writers to my level. And specifically I'll be looking out for answers on weather the 125 GeV Higgs is going to satisfy the standard model, with or without super symetry or not. (Here's a good article about that [url=http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21628901.500-particle-headache-why... Sientist; particle-headache-why-the-higgs-could-spell-disaster[/url] Being bugged about the results of the Hadron colider's peek at the higgs boson has me thinking; What do Transhumans in the EP setting know in the future that we don't know today? The obvious one is Digital Consciousness. They've established that there is a standard model for the human brain and human consciousness Inertial Confinement He3 Fusion. (this might be more of an engineering problem than a basic science problem but still, pretty impressive. Also; Metallic Hydrogen?!, somehow it's possible to have metallic hydrogen outside of the inside of Jupiter. (I'm wondering who else is astounded by that?) What are some of the other "Big Questions" that have to have been solved in order to have the EP setting? Thoughts?
