"Rolling in the Higgs", parodia de Adele sobre el bosón

12:12

El Gran Colisionador de Hadrones (LHC) cada vez se acerca más a la confirmación definitiva de la existencia del bosón de Higgs

Un hito en la física que bien merece una canción de Adele, Rolling to the deep, para darle un poco más de empaque. El montaje y la letra es de Tim Blais and y a Capella Science. Y, si bien el tipo desafina un poco, la letra de la canción está muy conseguida.

 

Ésta es la transcripción:

 

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
