What Benefits Would the Confirmation of
the Supersymmetry Model Bring to Physics?

Despite the absence of any physical confirmation of the Supersymmetry Model its advocates continue to support it on the basis that its validity would explain certain things that the Standard Model does not cover. However recent experiments revealed that a particular meson can decay into two muons, as predicted by the Standard Model, but the results were not modified in the way they would have been if the Supersymmetry Model were true. Nevertheless here are the things that keep the true believers in the Supersymmetry Model faithful.
