Synopsis

TOM NOELS SET UP THE FIRST HOSPITAL IN ORBIT... AND IT COULD BE THE LAST!

It would cost 150 lives, more or less, to get the GEO satellite on-line and transmitting solar power to an energy-starved Earth -- that was the estimate of fatal industrial accidents in the mammoth space project.

Iw as Dr. Tom Noel's job to cut that deadly figure drastically, by designing, staffing, and running a complete emergency ward... 22,400 miles from the nearest hospital. Tom Noels had to re-invent almost every medical technique to allow for weightlessness and the other unknown effects of space, and he improvised brilliantly -- but not always successfully.

He treated patients who were injured in ways underamed-of in medical history -- including a "bullet wound" from a micro-meteorite -- lost some, saved some and would save many more... if only he managed to stay alive himself!
