Desc: Science Fiction Sex Story: Chapter 1: Background. - A Better World II continues the story of the Savage family after the asteroid hit Burma in "A Better World." Tom and Cynthia Savage graduate from high school, get married, form the Graton Squadron, attend San Jose State university, earn degrees in avionics, and join the asteroid defense force. They find who sent the asteroid that hit Burma and tells what they did about it.
Hi! I am Tom Savage and this is basically the story of myself and my wife, Cynthia, and how we found and defeated the Karg. She is just letting me tell it.
Bullshit! I just lost the coin toss so he gets to tell it. I will tell some parts later. Go ahead Tom.
The Karg are a humanoid race very similar to Earth humans. The Karg were a race that allowed an artificial intelligence to be built to improve their ability to fight their neighbors. The AI was very successful. They wiped out six worlds near Karg. Then they reformed them to replicate Karg. In the process the Karg became slaves to their own AI. They developed a very efficient way of dealing with other life forms and planets. They directed asteroids at the target planet.
This is my and Cynthia's story of how we and ten other students at Analy High School trained to become astronauts in the Earth asteroid defense force created by the UN.
Before the Burma asteroid the WE were disseminated world wide. Many companies failed, but many others succeeded. The need for housing and food provided work for millions of the unemployed. Infrastructure enhancement was promoted by the UN. All over the world the military people became part of the Food and Home Corps. They worked at rehabbing derelict areas of cities and growing food to feed everyone.
We all were happy. Education, scientific investigation, the arts and physical health were encouraged by the WE. By the end of the first week of world wide connection the whole population had a BMI of twenty three; all adults had twenty two year old bodies that were immune to all disease and in great physical shape.
Education took a major change. Knowledge could be quickly transferred on the WEnet. Education then took the role of training activity. The training was hands on. Flying a plane, painting a picture, playing a viola, cooking a waffle, these all involved motor skills and education worked in these motor skill areas. Educational institutions were encouraged to continue scientific investigation.
We were all in this blissful state for about one month when an asteroid was detected on an impact course with Earth. It struck in Northern Burma one month later. All of South East Asia was gone. In a flash, one third of the world's population was wiped out. South East Asia was a vast wasteland of totally burnt farms, homes, cities, and forests. The destruction zone extended to the north coast of Australia in the south, to the city of Shanghai in the east, to Mongolia in the north, and to New Delhi in the west. The ash thrown into the air caused an extended winter to hit both hemispheres. The UN was able to provide and distribute needed supplies. The meteorologists had determined that there would be two very bad winters in the Northern hemisphere and one bad winter in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Food and Home Corps were dispatched to Australia, Argentina, Chili, Uruguay, Brazil, and South Africa. Food production there was really pushed. The Food Corps processed the food and distributed it to the rest of the planet. By the third summer the weather had pretty much returned to normal all over the planet. Food production returned to the northern hemisphere.
The impact of the asteroid had more than physical effects. The WE and the humans had a week of shock. There were four and a half billion deaths. That the planet was still networked was a miracle. Where the Internet was down, the WEnet seemed to have survived. Many people were located at the one thousand foot WE limit until an Internet net node could be reestablished. Communities would feed and care for the needs of the WEnet person. That person enabled communication all over the world. Everyone that provided WEnet service was recorded. Their names were added to the names in the Hall of Heroes in the UN in New York. Thanks to direct satellite connection the necessary Internet nodes were reestablished quickly. By one month after impact there was no area not connected by the Internet. Instant communication insured that no area had to suffer for lack of supplies. Some areas had shortages, but they did not last very long.
The satellite communication and the need for a space debris defense system led the UN to take over all of the surviving space agencies. The new agency was named the United Nation Aeronautic and Space Agency, or most people called it UNASA. The All of the assets of US, EU, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese agencies were assimilated into the UNASA.
The disaster could have been much worse. If the asteroid had hit the ocean, the water vapor would have wreaked havoc all over the world. There would be no place safe from flooding.
The UN decided to fund the UNASA to the tune of four hundred billion Unis. (Two old US dollars equaled one Uni.) The UNASA started a Space Academy at the Ames Research Facility in Mountain View, CA. The graduates would have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Astronautics and would be able to pilot an asteroid tug and a space shuttle.
UNASA was actively researching other areas of space science. They were working on an antimatter reactor on the far side of the Moon. They were starting to terraform Mars after they found underground water near the planet's equator. They upgraded the International space station using spent lifter fuel tanks. The station now was a rotating wheel configuration with artificial gravity.
They built a fleet of asteroid tugs and twenty delivery vehicles. The delivery vehicles contained the main crew quarters while on a mission to intercept the asteroid. The tugs were based on a modified old Soyuz craft with extra fuel capacity and western electronics and controls. Each tug had a payload of ten old Space Shuttle solid fuel booster rockets. The plan was to gently nudge the errant asteroid's orbit so it would miss the earth. This might be simpler described than actuated. The training activity at the space station included pushing all sorts of pieces of space junk. The UNASA had actually gone around and collected old satellites that had died for practice missions. It did not take long to clean up the space near the training satellite.
