Happy LHC Day!

What better way to celebrate than by checking out the Large Hadron Rap? It’s the best way to learn about the various programmes at the LHC – after all, the stuff I wrote about yesterday was just one of the many experiments for which the LHC will be used.

Thanks to Kate McAlpine for that one, though I might also mention that she was inspired by one of my personal favourites in the growing world of science/entertainment, MC Hawking.

And if anyone is worried about the end of the world, be sure to remind them that today is just a test-firing; no collisions are happening until at least October 21st, so they’ve more than a month to get the absurd panicking out of their systems. For my money, though, October 21st will be the real day for celebration.
