Bern da Black Hole?
So the news from the end of last week was the commencement of the particle accelerator experiment investigating the big bang. The huge particle accelerator is located in Bern, Switzerland, and really where else would it be? The scientists are studying the interactions of several types of particles, including lead ions, and the research may give us an entirely different paradigm for thinking about and visualizing the universe. But more importantly this was a time for music, and these brave scientists are on the cutting edge of the realm of hip-hop as well as that of physics. They released a video from the site of the experiment to help us hip young cats better understand the incredible complexity of what is going on and what they hope to accomplish…keep an ear out for Stephen Hawking (aka DJ Hawking)
