Supersymmetry (or SUSY) is a theory of particle physics, originally proposed in 1973 by Julius Wess and Bruno Zumino, that hypothesizes a broken symmetry between the families of elementary particles known as Bosons and Fermions. Supersymmetry predicts that every fundamental fermion has a bosonic superpartner, and every fundamental boson has a fermionic superpartner. None of these particles has ever been observed and there is no direct evidence for them.

In 2008, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will offer the best chance to detect these new particles predicted by supersymmetry.
