Kate McAlpine, a 23-year old Michigan State grad, is sucking in the hits on YouTube with, of all things, a sensational physics rap that’s set for viral stature. The Large Hadron Collider is slated to be turned on September 10th, and it is the source of horrified controversy; the LHC is believed to be capable of producing miniature black holes. There are fears that if enough miniature black holes are produced, they might migrate to the center of the earth to merge into a planet sucking black hole, a cosmic hoover vacuum, if I dare be facetious.
There are also whispers on the ‘net that Nostramadus saw this coming, and the Mayans set the Earth’s destruction at December 21, 2012. Hmm, we can’t forget the juiciest bit of the bible, Revelations. Nevertheless, this rap is entertaining, and is more accessible to the public than most physics fare. If you haven’t seen it, watch it already! The lyrics may be found here.
This here video is another installment of her Physics Rap Canon, and details the adventures of Eshel Ben-Jacob and Itay Baruchi in the world of neurochips.
