Hip-hop collides with particle physics

Have trouble getting your head around particle physics and particle colliders at CERN? Suffer no more. The wonderful Kate McAlpine reduces the whole story to a hip-hop rap that's drawn half a million viewers already on YouTube.

Is Kate McAlpine, scientist, a relative of yours, I hear you ask? Yes (but she's a different Kate McAlpine, scientist).

Hip-hop rapper Kate McAlpine, a 23-year-old Michigan State graduate, calls herself a science communicator. Kate, the world needs you—keep on doing what you do:
