Large Hadron Rap

Kate McAlpine is a 23-year-old Michigan State University graduate and science writer who created this rap about the Large Hadron Collider, the groundbreaking particle accelerator that has been built in a 17-mile circular tunnel at the CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland. The $3.8 billion machine will collide two beams of protons moving at close to the speed of light so scientists can see what particles appear in the resulting debris. McAlpine received permission to film herself and friends dancing in the caverns and tunnels where the experiments will take place. I've posted science raps in the past but this one is truly the biz-omb:

James, I trusted you. Don't post geek crap like this again. I could have spent those 4 minutes and 49 seconds watching paint dry.

I learned something about you. Zing.
