The article is summed up in the excerpt -- Thus, the small mass of the Higgs boson all but ensures that there is new physics to be discovered. --
New physics is the best physics. New ways to see the world, new discoveries, new science. The unexpected lightness of the Higgs boson might be due to the existence of super symmetrical particles, which would support string theory, or might not. The search will be fascinating.
I wish the faster than light neutrinos HAD been faster than light, not an experimental error. I hope super particles are real and that dark energy is a kind of antigravity we can harness. Science is the best mystery story, a never ending story...so far, anyway.
