Hunting the Snark Beyond LHC

We found the weak bosons that unify the electroweak interaction at SppS.
We found the top quark to complete the families of fermions at Tevatron.
We found the Higgs boson that gives mass to the bosons at LHC.
There was for a time a hope that supersymmetry might be just around the corner.
But after a decade of hunting, it still has not appeared.

So now what? An ultimate-energy hadron collider? An e+e- linear collider? A muon collider?
I will discuss the technologies that might make each of these possible.

In the midst of the word he was trying to say,
In the midst of his laughter and glee,
He had softly and suddenly vanished away—
For the Snark was a Boojum, you see.
