Watching over it was Louise Benoit, twenty-eight, a statuesque postdoc from Montreal with a mane of thick brown hair stuffed, as required here, into a hair net. She kept her vigil in a cramped control room, buried two kilometers-a mile an a quarder, as she sometimes explained for American visitors in an accent that charmed them-beneath the Earths surface.
