Superstrings to Rescue..?

Quantum physics hadn’t resolved our current perceptive of particle energy theme, That’s why superstring has to be inserted in matter energy theme. Even though the natural length scale of string theory is much much much too small to be be measure directly in particle experiments, there are aspects of string theory that might be measurable with today’s technology or with technology of near future.
One of the prediction of string theory is that at higher energy scales, we should start to see evidence of a symmetry that gives every particle that transmits a force(boson), a partner particle that makes up matter or fermion and vice versa. The symmetry between forces and matter is called supersymmetry and partner particles are superpartners. In current particle experiments we can’t yet see any direct evidence for the existence of superpartners for known elementary particles(there is some indirect evidence however). There is a good chance we could start to see superpartners in future particle experiments. He that happened, it could turn out to be evidence for string theory. Recently, LHC experiment that was done to find evidence of god particle or higgs boson but it was failed due some reasons. May be, perhaps one day we’ll able to find evidence of such particles in near future, if and only if our such hypothesized particle do exist otherwise total waste of time and money.
