From the Vault: Alpine Kat’s “The Large Hadron Collider”

 Editor’s Note: The Daily Music Break re-posts great music from earlier in the site’s run. This is among the most creative videos on the site. It originally posted on April 4, 2012. 

Alpine Kat, aka Kate McAlpine, does a few great things in this video. She creates a rap song that can be called cute or even charming — 50 Cent and Lil Wayne don’t have many of those — and clearly explains the basics of particle physics in general and the Large Hadron Collider in particular.

She does all that in less than five minutes. It’s also funny. It has more than 7 million hits, so people apparently agree that it’s a great video.

Here is McAlpine’s site and her YouTube channel.
