October 26, 2012, 6:00AMANS Nuclear Cafe

The ANS Nuclear Cafe Matinee presents loyal readers-and loyal viewers-with an all-time great video: "Large Hadron Rap"!

The video went "viral" in 2008 at about the time of the startup of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and has more than 7.5 million views to date on YouTube, and multiples more worldwide in classrooms, in translation, etc. You will definitely want to add yours to that number.

And now get this: Science communicator Katherine McAlpine (a.k.a. rapper "AlpineKat")-writer, producer, and performer of the Large Hadron Rap-will be at the American Nuclear Society Winter Meeting in November at the San Diego Town and Country Resort. She will be a distinguished panelist during the "Telling the Nuclear Story Using Online Video and Broadcast" session-mark your calendars for Tuesday afternoon, November 13 at 2:30, in the Pacific Salon Three room at the resort.

If you haven't heard, experiments with the Large Hadron Collider confirmed the existence of the Higgs boson. Got a minute? See this Matinee featuring a Minute Physics video explaining what that was all about.

And definitely, see more fantastic science rap videos at Katherine McAlpine's homepage.
