Last week I had a lesson with one of my students who is a physics major. He is always talking about black holes and particle physics so I showed him the latest “Physics Rap Video” that is making a big splash on the web. Large Hadron Rap (antimatter)
He was ecstatic and plans to show it to all of his fellow physics students. Well it has now garnered over a million views and its popularity is growing like wildfire. We also talked about Dan Brown’s book titled Angels and Demons which includes a lot of discussion of the search for antimatter and the activities of CERN. I think i piqued his piqued his interest and he will most likely try to read the book. I read it last year and it is certainly a real page-turner and in my opinion it is far better than the Divinci Code.
