Abstract: 

Since its turn-on in 2009, the Large Hadron Collider has performed tremendously, delivering copious amounts of proton-proton collision data at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. Analyzing these data, the ATLAS experiment has conducted a broad search for Supersymmetry, a compelling theory for physics beyond the Standard Model. No hint of a super-partner has yet been seen, but I will discuss what we've ruled out so far, and why we're not ready to hang up our sparticles.
