Large Hadron Collider Rap

So there's this huge particle accelerator being built under the Switzerland-France border. I know generally what particle accelerators do, and I have some vague idea of what the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is supposed to be used for... but it's pretty vague. The information out there is fairly technical and quickly gets into the leading edge of theoretical physics.

For those reasons the following video is completely awesome. It's the most accessible explanation I've yet seen of what the LHC is going to do when it's turned on, and what it might mean for our understanding of physics. Plus, it's hilarious.

That makes me SO HAPPY.

you know it must be good because I showed it to Lauren last week and she did not even hate it at all!
