the charnel grounds

The day after a cab driver went postal in Cumbria killing 12 people and injuring a further eleven, the idea of locking yourself into a mock spaceship to simulate an 18-month mission to Mars has its attractions.

Actually living in a JG Ballard dystopia (Super-Cannes and Thirteen to Centaurus spring to mind in respective reference to the two incidents above) is not necessarily something to relish.
