London, December 28 (ANI): Reports have indicated that the official choir of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is to record a song dedicated to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), popularly known as the "Big Bang Machine".

The LHC is the vast physics experiment built in a 27 km-long underground tunnel, which runs in a circle under the French-Swiss border.

According to a report by BBC News, a song, written by clinical psychologist Danuta Orlowska, has been set to the tune of the 'Hippopotamus' song by Flanders and Swann and its chorus celebrates the Higgs boson - a sub-atomic particle that the LHC is designed to detect.

"Higgs, Higgs glorious Higgs," the tune goes, "the theory told them these thingamijigs, were so fundamental."

But this isn't CERN's first ode to particle physics.

Staff members once wrote a rap song that was praised for its scientific accuracy - if little else.

"You see particles flying, in jets they spray. But you notice there ain't nothin', goin' the other way," they rapped. (ANI)
