We're still here

Despite some mildly ridiculous fears that science (in the form of the Large Hadron Collider at [1] CERN in Gevena Switzerland) would cause the world would end yesterday we're still here. Whew. It must have been God's Will. To celebrate, here's a mildly ridiculous rap song about the LHC experiment (which, quite pleasantly, gets the physics right).

(Tip to Tanya for the video.)

Update 12 September 2008: The New York Times has run a well written piece by Brian Greene on the LHC and it's significance.


[1] For more information about what CERN is, check out this 3 minute video on YouTube about it.
