The 23-year-old Michigan State University graduate and science writer raps about the Large Hadron Collider, the groundbreaking particle accelerator that has been built in a 17-mile circular tunnel at the CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland."
Quite an educational video on the LHC for those of us less familiar with high energy particle physics. Perhaps someone will get her a teaching grant when she's done as a technical writer at the Collider?"
