Abstract: I describe how superstring theory may violate spin-statistics in anexperimentally observable manner. Reviewing the basics of superstringinteractions and how to utilize these to produce a statistical phase, I thenapply these ideas to two specific examples. The first is the case of heteroticworldsheet linkings, whereby one small closed string momentarily enlargessufficiently to pass over another, producing such a statistical phase. Thesecond is the braneworld model with noncommutative geometry, whereby mattercomposed of open strings may couple to a background in which spacetimecoordinates do not commute, modifying the field anticommutator algebra. Iconclude with ways to sharpen and experimentally test these exciting avenues topossibly verify superstring theory.
