46 year old Colorado amputee becomes real bionic woman

• Terrence Aym
Back in 1972, former NASA engineer and prolific writer, Martin Caidin's novel "Cyborg" was published. The story became the basis of the popular TV series "The Six Million Dollar Man" that followed the adventures of bionically enhanced former astronaut Steve Austin. Austin was joined by his bionic fiancée, Jaime Sommers during 1976 in the aptly named TV spinoff, "The Bionic Woman." Now, almost four decades later a real bionic woman exists and Caidin would be every bit as proud of her as he was of the character Jaime Sommers.
