NOT EVEN WRONG
THE FAILURE OF STRING THEORY
The story begins with an historical survey of the experimental and theoretical developments that led to the creation of the phenomenally successful "Standart Model" of particle physics around 1975. Despite its successes, the Standard Model did not answer all the key questions and physicists' continuing search for answers led to the development of superstring theory. However, after twenty years, superstring theory has still failed to advance beyond the Standard Model.
