Can LHC 2016 Data Answer the Question: is Our Universe Metastable ?

Authors: Frank Dodd Tony Smith Jr

In arXiv 1307.3536 Buttazzo, Degrassi, Giardino, Giudice, Sala, Salvio, and Strumia assume a Standard Model Higgs with a single 125.66 GeV Mass State and a Standard Model Tquark with a single 173.35 GeV Mass State and conclude that Our Universe is MetaStable with a possibility that its current ElectroWeak Vacuum could decay at any time (although its probable lifetime is at least around 10^400 years). However, the LHC has seen possible indications of at least two other Higgs Mass States (around 200 GeV and 250 GeV, with small cross sections about 20% of that of single SM Higgs) that are NOT in the MetaStable Vacuum Region. For the LHC to produce enough data beyond the 25/fb now available in 2013 to show whether or not the 200 GeV and 250 GeV Higgs Mass States are real, the upgrade of the long shutdown and the 2016 run data are necessary. Only the LHC 2016 Data can answer the question: Is Our Universe MetaStable?
