  • Large Hadron Rap

    LOL
    Scientists with too much time on their hands.

    The Large Hadron Rap

    Twenty-seven kilometers of tunnel under ground
    Designed with mind to send protons around
    A circle that crosses through Switzerland and France
    Sixty nations contribute to scientific advance
    Two beams of protons swing round, through the ring they ride
    ‘Til in the hearts of the detectors, they’re made to collide
    And all that energy packed in such a tiny bit of room
    Becomes mass, particles created from the vacuum
    And then…

    LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
    ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
    CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
    They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.
    The LHC accelerates the protons and the lead
    And the things that it discovers will rock you in the head.

    We see asteroids and planets, stars galore
    We know a black hole resides at each galaxy’s core
    But even all that matter cannot explain
    What holds all these stars together – something else remains
    This dark matter interacts only through gravity
    And how do you catch a particle there’s no way to see
    Take it back to the conservation of energy
    And the particles appear, clear as can be

    You see particles flying, in jets they spray
    But you notice there ain’t nothin’, goin’ the other way
    You say, “My law has just been violated – it don’t make sense!
    There’s gotta be another particle to make this balance.”
    And it might be dark matter, and for first
    Time we catch a glimpse of what must fill most of the known ‘Verse.
    Because…

    LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
    ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
    CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
    They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.

    Antimatter is sort of like matter’s evil twin
    Because except for charge and handedness of spin
    They’re the same for a particle and its anti-self
    But you can’t store an antiparticle on any shelf
    Cuz when it meets its normal twin, they both annihilate
    Matter turns to energy and then it dissipates

    When matter is created from energy
    Which is exactly what they’ll do in the LHC
    You get matter and antimatter in equal parts
    And they try to take that back to when the universe starts
    The Big Bang – back when the matter all exploded
    But the amount of antimatter was somehow eroded
    Because when we look around we see that matter abounds
    But antimatter’s nowhere to be found.
    That’s why…

    LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
    ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
    CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
    They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.
    The LHC accelerates the protons and the lead
    And the things that it discovers will rock you in the head.

    The Higgs Boson – that’s the one that everybody talks about.
    And it’s the one sure thing that this machine will sort out
    If the Higgs exists, they ought to see it right away
    And if it doesn’t, then the scientists will finally say
    “There is no Higgs! We need new physics to account for why
    Things have mass. Something in our Standard Model went awry.”

    But the Higgs – I still haven’t said just what it does
    They suppose that particles have mass because
    There is this Higgs field that extends through all space
    And some particles slow down while other particles race
    Straight through like the photon – it has no mass
    But something heavy like the top quark, it’s draggin’ its ***
    And the Higgs is a boson that carries a force
    And makes particles take orders from the field that is its source.
    They’ll detect it….

    LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
    ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
    CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
    They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.

    Now some of you may think that gravity is strong
    Cuz when you fall off your bicycle it don’t take long
    Until you hit the earth, and you say, “Dang, that hurt!”
    But if you think that force is powerful, you’re wrong.
    You see, gravity – it’s weaker than Weak
    And the reason why is something many scientists seek
    They think about dimensions – we just live in three
    But maybe there are some others that are too small to see
    It’s into these dimensions that gravity extends
    Which makes it seem weaker, here on our end.
    And these dimensions are “rolled up” – curled so tight
    That they don’t affect you in your day to day life
    But if you were as tiny as a graviton
    You could enter these dimensions and go wandering on
    And they'd find you...

    When LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
    ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
    CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
    They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.
    The LHC accelerates the protons and the lead
    And the things that it discovers will rock you in the head.

    The fact that two of my friends have phds in physics doesn't show, does it?

      Skylark, we posted this in the other Hadron thread a while back, but I hadn't seen the lyrics for it yet.

      And it's been great knowing everyone. Tomorrow the world ends, just about the same time Steve jobs is announcing new ipods.

      Coincidence? I think not! :madsmile:

        Actually, it's October 21st when they attempt the first high-energy proton collision. Tomorrow is when they start the protons spinning round the LHC, ready for Oct 21st.

        I expect these new iPods will be being released on October 22nd. :)

            Guess what! They have a live webcam up now where you can watch the thing running. It is pretty cool though cause every about 10-15 sec this thing blasts around the circuit. I was watching once where there were people in the room and they all had ear protection on and were still pressing down covering their ears.

                    I read the title as Large Hard On rap... very disappointed.
