With the LHC up and running, speculation about its results are at a high. I will argue that the cosmological constant problem tells us that there is only a very limited choice of scenarios of what can be seen. his points to a world with two large (micron-sized) supersymmetric extra dimensions, with possibly other much smaller dimensions. I will show an explicit brane-world construction of this idea, and show some of its observational consequences.
