Rap Is Made About The LHC at CERN! Enrico Fermi Comes Back From Grave To Approve

Sometime soon the much anticipated LHC (Large Hadron Collider) will go online at CERN in Switzerland. It will be the most powerful particle collider in the world and either discover the Higgs Boson, an as yet theoretical subatomic particle that helps explain mass, or everything we know will get sucked into a Black Hole. Either way, this rap by AlpineKat makes our impending doom that much more enjoyable. If you’ve been avoiding learning about positron colliders, elementary particles and anti-matter until the information came along in song form, your day has arrived.

This is exponentially nerdier than anything that we have written as Hard ‘n Phirm, and as such we support it 1 x 10² %.

    Why can’t my physics classes be as catchy?

  2. smoovebert says:

    oh my. that was surpringly satisfying.

  3. chich says:

    i just had bill nye the science guy flashbacks…

  4. Yes ‘Rap’ is way cool dudes, but I dare you to ‘Rap-Rap-Rap’ right down this rabbit-hole, and see just how far it really goes!

    Remember: Follow the ‘White Rabbit’!

    Send the scientists here please.

    There’s an orb of dark matter collecting in my garage and it appears to be sucking all known life into its vortex.

    And something shouts wikee-wikee-wikee everytime a new organism disappears.

  7. Garrant3 says:

    Wow, that was amazing. And they even had subtitles too, which was good. Now I’ll be at the top of my physics class!

  8. Loralee says:

    Now THAT is hard-core science geek stuff, there. (Who knew this about you, Megan?)

  9. 10:30 am and my 2 year old is supposed to be at his first day of preschool but his mother forgot his 121 form (which means he ain’t done got his shots up good fer school) so he is at home. However can I make up for this oversight?

    Enter the nerdist.

    I just sat here and marveled at my 2 year old dancing and throwing gang signs to a song about antimatter. I’m pretty sure he threw the symbols for helium and cobalt at one point.

    And now I’m going to twitter this one (because who doesn’t love a good twitter pimp?) and reveal to any followers that click through just how I entertain my offspring.

    If you happen to have any video of you operating an electron microscope, I’ll have your baby.
