  3. 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 ;-)

    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: einstein-online.info

    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.
