Ok, if you’re wondering about the LHC or are in the mood for the geekiest gansta rap ever, check out
That was terrific (and surprisingly informative).
For something completely different, here is Stephen Barr at First Things discussing the LHC and possible “anthropic” implications of the Higgs particle:
And here is the Wall Street Journal’s write-up from today, confusingly titled “Fact Checking the Universe”:
I love experiments like this for the same reason I love certain passages of the Bible (such as Gen. 6:2 or Joshua 5:13-15). They remind us that reality is much larger and much deeper than we can yet perceive or understand. They at once free us from having to pretend we know everything while giving us greater opportunities to both nurture our curiosity and worship God.
Thanks Tobin. I have to agree with the one commenter who called the piece: The most intelligent rap video i have ever seen. But I must qualify that with the statement that I’m not a musicologist who has explored intelligent rap 😉 Did you see CNN has an article on the 23-year-old Michigan State University graduate and science writer/wrapper, Atom collider rap is a YouTube smash?
How about the various youtube posts of the main event, e.g.,
and the CNN Breaking News Video which includes a brief interview with Higgs?
