I’m a sucker for a bit of science, particularly when it involves smashing things into other things at extremely high velocity. So my ears pricked up this week when they announced that, after 30 years in the building, the Large Hydron Collider at Cern in Switzerland is finally to be powered up. But that’s not all. Not content with attempting to recreate the Big Bang, the crazy scientists have created a Rap Video to explain the whole darn thing to the Yoof.
I’m not sure if they will be able to prove the existence of the fabled Higgs Boson, but they have already proved, beyond doubt in my mind at least, that things really can be so wrong that they’re right. I particularly love the fill-ins from Stephen Hawking. Genius. Literally.
