The Higgs discovery closes a chapter in our understanding, and itís time to open another. The Higgs was the last ingredient of the Standard Model, which describes the particles that make up the visible universe. But we know that there is more than meets the eye. Just 5% is visible, with rest being Dark Matter and Dark Energy. One candidate for Dark Matter is heavy particles that have so far been out of reach. With the LHC running at 6.5TeV, will they now be within our grasp?
