Maria : Cyborg Cosmonaut by gamera1985 Maria : Cyborg Cosmonaut by gamera1985
year 20XX.

A new Space Race to Mars and the gas giants' satellites is in place. To have a chance against powerful countries, such as the U.S, the European Union or China, that would otherwise reclaim those planets for their own, the rest of the world has been developing its own joint space program, under the United Nations, and essentially fostered by Japan, Brazil, Australia and a few other countries.

However, the UNSA (United Nations Space Agency) budget is quite low, compared to that of its competitors. So it has been decided to send only one cosmonaut at a time into space. After many months of selection among thousands of candidates, Maria Guo Eckener, an Argentinian engineer, has been chosen to be the first human to go on Mars.

In order to save energy, food and space, it has been decided she would undergo extreme body modification: she would have all limbs, most of the torso and many organs removed, with other parts of the body greatly reduced. The end result was that, while the heart and lungs, most of the digestive system and reproductive organs were kept intact and held safely in a slim modular cylinder, her neck and head were the only parts of her body left totally untouched. Thanks to the many cybernetic implants near her spine, she can control shipboard computers or robots.

However extreme it may sound, in the designers' eyes it was not really far from the handling of the first cosmonauts in the 1960's, who were more passengers than really controlling their spaceships. Besides, considering the numerous social experiments in communication deprivation that have been performed since then, the fact she can't go wild inside the ship is an advantage for this 18 month long solitary mission toward the red planet.

For more than a year, Maria has been training with her new shape, controlling the commands of her space capsule and the robots she'll be using to explore Mars' surface. Finally, her day had come, and she launched from Brazil, almost one year before the other space programs were ready to take the same step.

...

18 months later, she landed safely in the Pacific, off the Japanese coast. Her mission was a success, and more than 8 billion people were with her in spirit on the day she landed on Mars, almost 10 months before. She is now an international hero, and was awarded prizes and interviewed by media from all over the world. A few critics noted that as of yet no human had technically put foot on Mars though...

She is now taking a one-year break, back home with her boyfriend that waited for her the whole time. After this, she has volunteered for the next destination of the UNSA program: exploring Titan, Saturn's satellite.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know, this is only a story: I guess there is many objections people would tell me, but i really wanted to give that pic a nice story for once.


I guess it would have been less shocking for people to have an already crippled body rather than someone with a normal one. But I do like the idea of motivated sacrifice, so that's how are things.

I got many questions, so I'll try to answer them:

-During most of the travel, she was sleeping: her biological rythm has been slowed down by meds and life support. so she actually felt the travel to Mars was half-shorter.
- She weights around 30kg. Since she has almost no fat tissues anymore in her body, she can eat at will, she'l barely get any fat.
- She still has her genitals, but has been made sterile in order to prevent hormonal deregulation. She can still have babies, as some of her ova have been frozen beforehand.
- Her genitals are at the bottom of her containment unit, hided by a hermetic access panel (since she is supposed to be able go out in space with a helmet her current body). When pluged into her command slot, her wastes are directly taken care of and her pee recycled into drinkable water.
- Having a sex is also a good way for her to get stimulated in a "borying" environment such as her spaceship, without any external stimulus. When plugged into her command slot, she can control a dildo at will (it is said she asked engineers to add different models before hand).

Why launch from Brazil, when there's already a perfectly good spaceport in French Guiana?

true enough...but i think that Europe isn't part of that UN program (kinda have their own like the USA) so they won't lend it.

P.S: i know that stuff, my family work on the space launcher in french guiana ;)

so, is the rest of her body cyrogenically frozen so they can re-attach it or is she stuck like that for life?

Took a look at your pictures. Things such as strange, odd, bizarre and "TOTALLY FREAKIN MESSED UP" came to mind. At the same time time it is intriging. Somehow I can't help but picture Misa Misa from Deathnote turned into a ladypot and had an idea for what reason to but I leave that to the imagination of others. Anyway your a good artist, take care and Godbless. P.S. Merry Christmas!

Better heroics through superior firepower!

the reason USA was not first to Mars was because we were too busy getting to venus, then we terraformed it, then we named it Reach, after that we set up a spartan training program there

I would imagine that someone, either the UNSA or a private firm, might construct an artificial body that she can use once back on Earth that fits around the cylinder. It could be particularly lucrative for a private contractor, actually-- they'd become famous for building a body for such a high-profile individual, which would leap them ahead in the public mind in the field of advanced prosthetics.

So while the initial decision to drastically alter her body may seem inhumane, it could lead to great advancements for others to live better lives. It's at least a thought for those considering the ethical dilemma. Not to say that it solves it, but it's an interesting counterweight to the issue.

right ^_^
in fact, she will get one: very basic and no artificial skin or anything that neat, but at least, she can use sort of arms and move around (not sure if it'd be with legs though)

Probably wheels, as that's more economical to build (and easier to design.) That's a decent compromise for her, at least. ^^

she looks sexy wearing glasses, but i think when you're able to do such big body modifications you should be able also to correct her eyes ;) anyway, this would be disqualifying her for this job, even with contact glasses :P

sad for her - as she was probably mounted into her spaceship console, she haven't feel no-gravity advantages at all

more ladypots! ;)

haha right, strange to see glasses ^^"

as for no gravity, she could enjoy it, as she was able to re-mount herself in the command slot

I would make a reference to the Wierd Al line "Torso Boy," but the subject of this picture is, in fact, a woman (and yes, I also ripped off Pirates of the Caribbean just now, so sue me).

What happens if someone drops her down the stairs on the way up to the rocket :O

the same as if Neil Armstrong was to fail the stairs with his spacesuit before the launching: a nice time at the hospital.

Though in her case she is more resistant, so if the head is ok, she can continue.

Le seul souci c'est que le voyage vers Mars dure au minimum 18 mois, et au pire 3 ans.
Donc l'aller-retour ne peut avoir lieu en moins de 3 ans.

Ah oui en effet, c'est le voyage total qui ne peut durer moins de 18 mois, a cause de l'alignement sur l'orbite de transfert. Disons donc que je n'ai rien dit :D
