A major scientific experiment attempting to establish what happened at the time of the Big Bang more than 13 billion years ago is presented in a hip-hop manner by scientists that can hardly know what to expect, but are well aware by the power of the Internet.
Days before what is presented as one of the biggest physics experiments in the history of human kind, researchers from the European organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) explained how the Large Hadron Collider works in a youtube video seen by more than 1.2 million times.
The CERN experiment, involving a particle accelerating tunnel, known as LCH, way deep beneath the French-Swiss border, aims at collecting evidence of what happened at the time of the Big Bang, including possible evidence of dark matters and extra dimensions. It has already reached huge hype through various allegations that it may lead to the end of the world as we know it.
But until the experiment starts this Wednesday, British newspaper The Telegraph notes that CERN scientists are presenting the event in a hip-hop manner in a video that has lured more than 1.2 million visitors on the YouTube since it was uploaded two months ago. The dancing scenes were filmed in the very interior of the CERN lab where detectors would detect billions of particle clashes.
