Nature article, Particle physics is at a turning point, Dec. 2011
Sakurai prize 2017 “For instrumental contributions to the theory of the properties, reactions, and signatures of the Higgs boson.”
Kane has been arguing that string phenomenology-models of the kind of M-theory on G2-manifolds, notably the G2-MSSM, “generically” predict Higgs particle masses around 120-130 GeV. He stated this in
a few months before the actual detection of the Higgs particle (and its mass of $\sim 125$GeV) at the LHC, and with more details in
a few days before the result was officially announced (a useful informed comment is here).
