Taking the internet by storm is the smartest parody of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” ever sung, “Bohemian Gravity”, which attempts to explain String Theory in a compact 6 minutes. Tim Blais of A Capella Science, a McGill physics graduate, uses his a cappella skills once again in this catchy follow-up to last years hit, “Rolling in the Higgs” to entertain and educate us.

    Great crossover!
    However, the predictions of supersymmetrical particles tested by the LHC keep failing – is a theory still falsifiable if you can always just increase the minimum mass of symmetrical particle predictions? There will be at least one more shot in 2015, but they could always be just over the horizon…
    Perhaps grad students should be encouraged to consider new approaches, not just the decades old leading edge – now wearing thin…
