9780099741909: Orbital Decay

Olympus Station, affectionately known as Skycan, orbits the Earth and is home to 130 beamjacks. These are the people who are building the future, the space-stations that will open up the new territory. But frontier life can be dangerous and Skycan holds a secret that could threaten world stability.

Review:

The beamjacks are the builders of the future: the zero-G workers who are assembling satellites in the vacuum of space. Management and the military think they have the beamjacks under control -- but they're wrong.
