Heterotic string possesses very rich symmetries. It naturally describes SO(32) and E8 ×E8 gauge group, by uniform charge on the closed string. Also it has sixteen real (N= 4 in four dimension) supersymmetries. We would say that it also has enough number of spacetime dimensions, 10, to explain our spacetime.
