Should be a very interesting time for physicists going forward from the discovery of the god particle.
This is just me being dumb but when I read about the alternate dimensions, I think of the SciFi type things(tv/books/xmen new class cartoon) where they open up a dimensional portal, walk 10 feet come out of a dimensional portal and then they are across the continent.
If we can avoid a global war or survive it our future looks really awesome.
