In 2013, the Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded "for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of [the] subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider".” That leads immediately to the question: What’'s next? The CERN LHC is just starting to run at twice its initial energy. What are its prospects for discovery? What does it mean for physics?
