James strode forward, a confident smile on his face. He stopped on the mark in the old bicycle tunnel. “Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the future of space travel!” He announced nodding to the technicians.

Beams of light enveloped him in a coruscating field, blinding him. Shifting gravity fluttered his stomach. He clenched his teeth against the nausea as the universe whirled and twisted around him. He concentrated fiercely on his destination. He was torn apart and then reassembled.

He blinked his vision clear as everything solidified. He sighed in relief, recognizing his surroundings. He stood safely on the Mars Base receiving platform . He had done it! He had Tunneled and arrived in one piece! He frowned in confusion, something felt wrong. The waiting emergency medical crew was running for him, looks of horror on their faces. He became aware of an agonizing pain all over his body. He looked down at himself and screamed. His skin was gone!
