Rappin' about CERN's Large Hadron Collider! Links below... Apparently YouTube fixed the sound! Still, Will Barras made two options trying to get around the original problems: Other YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3iryBLZCOQ Vimeo: http://www.vimeo.com/1431471?pg=embed&sec=1431471 Vimeo is downloadable if you log in. There has been a lot of interest in the original mp3, lyrics, and vocals for remixing. You can find all that here: https://www.msu.edu/~mcalpin9/lhc_rap/largehadron.html There's also been interest in translation. You can get a subtitle-free version from Vimeo here (downloadable): http://www.vimeo.com/1730771 With backing track available here (with and without Hawking-style voice): http://barras.ws/rappin.html Go ahead and translate, rap it, and post it! Just give us a shout-out, and it's probably a good idea to include the following credits ;-) Images came from: particlephysics.ac.uk, space.com, the Institute of Physics, NASA, Symmetry, and Marvel I forgot Einstein Online, and they called me out: http://www.einstein-online.info And I forgot Physics World (dunno what I was thinking when I put together the extra dimensions bit). Steve Abel set me to rights (but made no demands): http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/print/403 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: http://www.ling.ed.ac.uk/~s9527813/ And thanks to MC Hawking, who first thought of using computer-voice to bring Stephen Hawking to the world of rap :-) http://www.mchawking.com/ The rapper has a day job (we agree this is a good thing) as a science writer. http://www.katemcalpine.com They'll have a lot of data to sort. 15 million GB per year, actually.
