String theory: Is dark energy even allowed?

In string theory, a paradigm shift could be imminent. In June, a team of string theorists published a conjecture which sounded revolutionary: String theory is said to be fundamentally incompatible with our current understanding of ‘dark energy’. A new study has now found out that this conjecture seems to be incompatible with the existence of the Higgs particle. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181009102431.htm
