Summary :

*HELP WANTED*
LONG HOURS, DANGEROUS CONDIIONS, MUST BE WILLING TO RELOCATE...

They are the men and women who are building the future. The beamjacks. The zero-gee construction workers hired to assemble gigantic satellites in the vacuum of space.

On the job, a moment's carelessness can lead to catastrophe. But the hardest part comes when the working day is over: boredom, homesickness, and the painful memories of the Earth they've left behind.

Management and the military think they have the beamjacks under control.

They're wrong.
