And now for some physics geek fun: presenting the Large Hadron Collider Rap, by science writer turned rap artist Kate McAlpine, with Will Barras, rappin’ about CERN’s Large Hadron Collider!
The talented dancers doubled as camera people, with some work by Neil Dixon. Stock footage is CERN’s.
Will Barras is responsible for the killa beats.
The creators thank MC Hawking, who first thought of using computer-voice to bring Stephen Hawking to the world of rap
The rapper has a day job (we agree this is a good thing) as a science writer. katemcalpine.com
