My last post on Big Bang - CERN's Large Hadron Collider Rap Video had a few readers asking me who the author and rapper of that video about high-energy particle physics is. Well, her name is Kate McAlpine, aka alpinekat (photo on the left). She is a science writer who works at CERN and who also has a rap about neurons on YouTube.

Her rap video about the Large Hadron Collider, the particle accelerator that has been built in a 17-mile circular tunnel at the CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland, has drawn almost 3 million views and counting so far on YouTube.

McAlpine rapped that when the collider starts functioning, "the things that it discovers will rock you in the head."
