Joe Kenmore heard the airlock close with a sickening wheeze and then a clank. In desperation he turned toward Haney. "My God, we've been locked out!"
Through the transparent domes of their space helmets, Joe could see a look of horror and disbelief pass across Haney's face. But it was true! Joe and his crew were locked out of the Space Platform.
Four thousand miles below circled the Earth. Under Joe's feet rested the solid steel hull of his home in outer space. But without tools there was no hope of getting back inside. Joe looked at his oxygen meter. It registered thirty minutes to live. (Summary from Gutenberg text) (6 hr 18 min)

space development goes at rocket speed in the 60s!
Top secret assignments, Soviet aggression, and making a date with your girl from the moon. Great, utterly implausible stuff! Go along for the ride.

Well read. Enjoyable yarn of good vs evil taken to outer space. Fast paced heroic style story. Enjoyable and interesting to learn of how before outer space exploration took place - this SCIFiI author imagined the technology to travel to orbit around earth. Fun, thanks!
Enjoyed another adventure of Joe and his crew. You can tell the author really did a lot of research. His descriptions of the mechanics and living in space were very detailed and impressively accurate for his time. Another great read by Mark
Alright book and narration
The book is OK and even good if you have no knowledge of astrodynamics or rocket science. For people that do have such a knowledge the book will appear a bit superficial. The narration was nevertheless good although a bit flat from time to time.
Good Book Well Read
The book was well written and the science was not too far off. Well worth the time.
I thought this was a very well written book, it was very descriptive, well written & most enjoyable. It was read beautifully too.

I particularly liked the solid science behind the story, so many modern stories ignore celestial mechanics !
Another outstanding performance by Mark Nelson. The story moved quickly and holds your intrest the entire time. I also enjoyed the the effects used when the characters communicated via radio. I now choose my books by searching for Mark Nelson.
