Rappin' about CERN's Large Hadron Collider! Links below...
There has been a lot of interest in the original mp3, lyrics, and vocals for remixing. You can find all that here:
There's also been interest in translation. You can get a subtitle-free version from Vimeo here (downloadable):
With backing track available here (with and without Hawking-style voice):
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 ;-)

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:
And thanks to 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.
They'll have a lot of data to sort. 15 million GB per year, actually. Want to get involved and donate your computer's downtime? Try LHC@home:
The first in a series of films following a team of physicists involved in research at the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland.
Gavin, Jon and Adam have a cunning plan to find the Higgs Boson, an elusive particle which physicists have been trying to find for over 40 years.
One of the main aims of the the LHC is to discover once and for all whether the Higgs actually exists or not, and ‘Eurostar’ might just hold the key to finding out…
