Large Hadron Collider: If we can actually find out something, maybe cosmology will become a science again …

In “Imagine There’s No God Particle” (Not Even Wrong, September 5, 2011) string theory skeptic Peter Woit tells us,

The LHC is back in business after a technical stop, getting ready to collide protons for the next couple months, perhaps reaching an integrated luminosity of about 5 inverse femtobarns. This is a factor of four higher than the luminosity used in most analyses that have been made public so far, and the latest projections are that this should allow an exclusion of a Higgs over the entire expected mass range at 95% confidence level, if such a particle really doesn’t exist.

But then what will we do with most of the cosmologists?
