EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Kate McAlpine is a viral sensation
thanks to her unlikely skill: rapping about high-level physics.
The Lansing State Journal reports the 23-year-old Michigan State
University graduate and science writer's particle physics rap is a
hit on YouTube with a half-million views.
She's focused the lyrics on the Large Hadron Collider at the
CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland.
McAlpine raps that when the collider is turned on September 10th, "the things that it
discovers will rock you in the head."
She even received permission to film herself and friends dancing in the underground caverns and tunnels where the experiments will take place.
