Summary

In 2012, Science's editors predict that particle physicists will either find the long-sought Higgs boson or prove that it does not exist, at least not with the properties ascribed by the standard theory. Other areas to watch include faster-than-light neutrinos, stem-cell metabolism, genomic epidemiology, efforts to treat intellectual disabilities, and Curiosity's mission to Mars.
