Un parell de paròdies musicals per començar


Aprofitem aquestos primers dies per anar agafant el ritme i el to necessaris per al que se’ns ve a sobre. I, per a això, res millor que una mica de música i humor ben combinats.

D’una banda, amb una mica de retard, un petit record a l’aterratge del Curiosity rover a Mart  i a la gent que hi havia al darrere del projecte, amb We’re NASA and We Know It (Mars Curiosity).

I seguint amb l’actualitat, però canviant d’estil i branca de coneixement, una explicació a capella de com s’ha treballat per seguir l’emprenta del Bosó de Higgs, amb A Capella Science – Rolling in the Higgs (Adele Parody).

A sota del videos trobareu les lletres.

 


We’re NASA and We Know It (Mars Curiosity)

When I EDL, time for seven minutes of flamin’ hell
Rover’s touchin’ down
everybody passin’ peanuts around, yeah
We’re at mission control, getting full use outta ev-er-y Sol (wa!)
Just 25 feet left to go
It’s Curiosity, look out below (yo)

Crane lower that rover (ah)
Crane lower that rover (ah)
Crane lower that rover (ah)

N-N-N-Now bug out!

Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rove
Crane lower that rover

Now bug out!

Kickin’ it at my con(sole), this is what I see (okay)
Data streaming back from curiosity
I got stars on my ‘hawk
and I ain’t afraid to show it (show it, show it, show it)
We’re NASA and we know it

We’re NASA and we know it

(Yo)
When I look for ice, gotta calibrate, gotta be precise
And when I raise the mast, panoramic views are unsurpassed (wha?)
This is how I rove, baking red rocks in my nuclear stove
We headed to the peak, with my laser eye
No one to bury me when it’s time to die (ow!)

Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rover

Now bug out!

Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rover

Now bug out!

Shoutout to Carl the Sage (and) Neil Degrasse T (B.A.!)
Shoutout to JPL and the Rocker-Bogie
We’re better than SpaceX
And we ain’t afraid to show it (show it, show it, show it)
We’re NASA and we know it
We’re NASA and we know it

A Capella Science – Rolling in the Higgs (Adele Parody)

There’s a collider under Geneva
Reaching new energies that we’ve never achieved before
Finally we can see with this machine
A brand new data peak at 125 GeV
See how gluons and vector bosons fuse
Muons and gamma rays emerge from something new
There’s a collider under Geneva
Making one particle that we’ve never seen before

The complex scalar
Elusive boson
Escaped detection by the LEP and Tevatron
The complex scalar
What is its purpose?
It’s got me thinking

Chorus:
We could have had a model (Particle breakthrough, at the LHC)
Without a scalar field (5-sigma result, could it be the Higgs)
But symmetry requires no mass (Particle breakthrough, at the LHC)
So we break it, with the Higgs (5-sigma result, could it be the Higgs)

Baby I have a theory to be told
The standard model used to discover our quantum world
SU(3), U(1), SU(2)’s our gauge
Make a transform and the equations shouldn’t change

The particles then must all be massless
Cause mass terms vary under gauge transformation
The one solution is spontaneous
Symmetry breaking

Roll your vacuum to minimum potential
Break your SU(2) down to massless modes
Into mass terms of gauge bosons they go
Fermions sink in like skiers into snow

Lyrics and arrangement by Tim Blais and A Capella Science
Original music by Adele
