Synopsis

Since 1971, theoretical physicists have been mesmerized by supersymmetry.  There is no doubt that it is a beautiful concept that has proven to be a powerful mathematical tool.  But with the LHC about to restart at full energy, it is time to ask where supersymmetry stands today.  What is supersymmetry?  Is supersymmetry realized in nature?  What are its prospects for discovery at the LHC?  And if it is not found, what does it mean for physics?
