Large Hadron Rap

Turn the geek factor up to max and you still might pull up short on this LHC rap-tour

Large Hadron Collider v Quark Stars

Testing is now complete on the Large Hadron Collider at Cern on the Swiss/France border. Cern are now ready for the September 10 launch in search of the illusive Higgs Boson, the missing sub-atomic particle that should theoretically provide the mass for the atom.

There have been some concerns, however that collisions could introduce Micro Black Holes and things called Strangelets (otherwise known as Quark Stars or Strange Stars). Should we be concerned? One publication says we should be, although Cern’s own research seems to substantiate the safety of the experiment.

It’s the stuff of science fiction.
