Deep mine of imagery

October 8, 2009

Your item about the struggle between "a small group of British physicists" and Cern was revealing ("The week in higher education", 1 October). The report states that the Brits are building a machine "in a mine tunnel", and that their "attempt pits them against" Cern. Presumably this is a classic example of major versus miner.
