What is the Large Hadron Collider? Rapper science writer Kate McAlpine explains:
LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.
The LHC accelerates the protons and the lead
And the things that it discovers will rock you in the head.

For those who like their pi songs without words…
