“宇宙大爆炸”的绕舌乐

小编摘要:高科技也可以用人民群众喜闻乐见的形式做到雅俗共赏嘛。

A project to re-enact the “Big Bang” at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) near Geneva is getting the rap treatment on the Internet from a group of young people working there.

“Twenty seven kilometres, a tunnel underground

“Designed with a mind to send protons around

“A circle that crosses through Switzerland and France

“Sixty nations contribute to scientific advance,” it runs.

The nearly five-minute video has been a big hit on YouTube (www.youtube.com) and some other sites, far more than the 23-year-old American would-be science writer who wrote the words ever expected. “It had an educational purpose. I thought it might make it into a few physics classrooms and perhaps be picked by some people randomly online,” says Kate MacAlpine, who is a trainee at CERN.

The video, largely filmed in CERN’s vast underground caverns along the Franco-Swiss border, explains for the uninitiated high-profile project around the gigantic Large Hadron Collider , or LHC, running round a 27 km tunnel. Young scientists and other trainee colleagues of MacAlpine jig around in yellow safety helmets as she raps her words to a rhythmic beat. The rap words are direct about the LHC. “The things that it discovers, will rock you on the head,” they declare.

“We think of dimensions, we live in just three.

“But maybe there are others, we’re going to see.”

And the video seeks to explain one of the prime aims of the multi-billion dollar experiment:

“The Higgs Boson that the one, that everybody talks about

“It’s the one sure thing that this machine will sort out.

“If the Higgs exists, they ought to see it right away

“And if it doesn’t, then the scientists will say:

“’There is no Higgs. We need new physics

“To account for why things have mass.”

The slight, slim-built MacAlpine blinks in the bright sun as she says outside the main CERN building right by a Swiss border post, “I think there’s just no chance that there’s going to be a black hole that destroys the earth from this machine. Cosmic rays hit the earth often at much higher energy than anything in the LHC. So if we were going to be sucked up by a black hole, it would have happened by now.”


日内瓦附近的欧洲核子研究中心(CERN)要重演“宇宙大爆炸”的计划在互联网上被传唱成了绕舌乐,这是一群在那儿工作的年轻人的杰作。

“27公里的地下隧道,

为运行质子束而设计,

圆圆的隧道穿过法国和瑞士,

60个国家为科学进步作贡献。”歌词这么唱道。

这段近五分钟的视频在YouTube和其他一些网站上成了大热门,远远超出了这位23岁的美国未来的科学作家,即歌词作者的预料。“这支歌有教育目的,我原想它可能会在一些物理课上被使用,或者被一些上网漫游的人看到。”CERN的实习生凯特?麦卡尔平如是说。

这段视频大部分是在CERN贯穿法国和瑞士边境的大型地下实验室中拍摄的,解释了这个围绕着大型强子对撞机(LHC,在一个周长为27公里的隧道内运行)进行的、不为人知的高端计划。年轻的科学家们和麦卡尔平的实习生同事们戴着黄色安全帽跳起舞步,而麦卡尔平则随着节拍说唱歌词。这些绕舌歌词都是直接讲述LHC的。“它的发现成果会令你震惊,”科学家们宣称。

“我们知道有空间,我们就在三维中,

是不是还有其他的,我们马上就知道。”

这段歌曲视频也解释了这项耗资数十亿美元的实验的一个主要目的:

“希格斯粒子人人说,

这机器就要把它找出来。

如果这东西真存在,

他们很快就能亲眼见到;

如果没发现这东西,

科学家们就会说:

我们得研究新物理课题,

看质量到底怎样产生。”

明媚的阳光下,身材娇小的麦卡尔平眨着眼睛,在瑞士界标旁边的CERN主楼前说道:“我认为这个机器不会产生黑洞效应,摧毁这个地球。撞击地球的宇宙射线的能量,比LHC产生的任何射线常常都要强。如果我们会被黑洞吸进去的话,那它现在就发生了。”
