Vanna Bonta was an American writer, actress, and inventor, who was best known for her novel Flight: A Quantum Fiction Novel, her cameo role in The Beastmaster, and her invention of the 2suit, a garment designed to facilitate sex in space. She was also one of the few poets whose haiku was launched to Mars on the NASA spacecraft MAVEN in 2013. But how did Vanna Bonta die, and what was the mystery surrounding her death?
A Life of Creativity and Adventure
Vanna Bonta was born on April 3, 1953, in Clarksville, Tennessee, to a military officer father and a painter mother. She was of partial Italian descent, and her grandfather was Luigi Ugolini, a Florentine knight and a friend of Mussolini. She grew up traveling the world, learning languages, and developing a passion for literature and art. She started writing poetry and fiction at the age of six, and published her first poem in a newspaper at the age of 12.
She pursued a career in acting and voice acting, appearing in various movies and TV shows, such as The Beastmaster, Beauty and the Beast, and Star Trek: The Next Generation. She also wrote and directed her own short films, such as The Love of Books and The Universe of Poetry. She was married to Allen Newcomb, a computer engineer and musician, who collaborated with her on several projects.
She achieved fame and recognition as a novelist, with her debut work Flight: A Quantum Fiction Novel, published in 1995. The novel was praised as the first definitive work of quantum fiction, a genre that explores the implications of quantum physics on reality and human perception. The novel was a blend of science fiction, fantasy, romance, and satire, and featured a protagonist who travels across parallel worlds in search of his true love.
She was also an inventor, who came up with the idea of the 2suit, a flight suit that can be attached to another 2suit to allow two or more people to stay close to each other in microgravity environments. The 2suit was mainly intended to enable sex in space, but also had other potential applications, such as medical, recreational, and emergency uses. She tested the 2suit in zero gravity, and appeared on the History Channel’s The Universe series to talk about her invention and the future of human colonization in space.
She was also a poet, who wrote haikus and other forms of poetry. One of her haikus was among the top five selected to be launched to Mars on the NASA spacecraft MAVEN in 2013. The haiku was:
Taking me closer to Mars
