READ THIS BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT THE SOUND QUALITY http://blog.wired.com/music/2008/07/n...

Then head over to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j50Zss... for a version where YouTube fixed the sound.
Rappin' about CERN's Large Hadron Collider!

The sound should be slightly better on this version - we've tried to get round YouTube's new extreme audio dynamic range compression by layering a 20kHz sine wave over the top of the soundtrack. (NB THIS WAS A WORKAROUND DURING THE PROBLEMATIC PERIOD FOR YOUTUBE IN LATE JULY)

Images came from:
particlephysics.ac.uk, space.com, the Institute of Physics, NASA, Symmetry, and Marvel

The talented dancers doubled as camera people, with some work by Neil Dixon. Stock footage is CERN's.

Will Barras is responsible for the killa beats:

The rapper has a day job (we agree this is a good thing) as a science writer.
