Rapper Consensus Visits Florida Tech

Antoine Gittens-Jackson, a South London-based songwriter, rapper, producer and poet known as Consensus whose 2017 album is all about particle physics, held a free concert on Nov. 9, at Tech Panthereum.

Consensus released the album ConCERNed last year. CERN is the European Organization for Nuclear Research, which operates the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland.

He spent much of the week on the Space Coast, visiting Kennedy Space Center and touring Florida Tech, where he met with physicist Marcus Hohlmann and his research group that works on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) at CERN.

Gittens-Jackson’s visit was sponsored by Florida Tech’s Department of Aerospace, Physics and Space Sciences and the College of Engineering and Science.
