I've been reading all the news about the Large Hadron Collider for months, but apparently I missed the most important bit about the LHC: the project has its very own rapper, ATLAS e-News science writer Katherine McAlpine, a.k.a. " AlpineKat." Her Large Hadron Rap went viral, with more than 5.5 million views as I write this. Her latest creation, above, is the Black Hole Rap and addresses concerns that the HLC will create a black hole that will consume the Earth and everything—and everyone—on it.



Now I just hope that someone here at Smithsonian doesn't get the idea that all science writers—such as me—are as talented in this area as AlpineKat.
