Remember when we had that huge wheel space station up there, back in
the mid 80s?

No?

You will when you read Ted White's future looking book from 1966. A
straight time line experience from that past point of view.

Hiliarious, but scary in some senses. Global climate change and how
an astronaut maneuvers in space on his own are two things that are
still relavant.

The US vs Soviet vibe comes through strong here, along with crew
cuts and the spunky female sidekick, but for those who grew up in
the "Space Age" this will tickle and enlighten, and mabye make you
a bit sad for "might have beens"

Interesting. It takes our Space Race into an interesting direction. And offers a good view of what-if from what was.

The Secret of the Marauder Satellite is a reasonably successful attempt to emulate Robert Heinlein's great "juvenile" sci-fi novels of the 1950s (Space Cadet, Starship Troopers, etc.). The story follows Paul, a young man fresh out of NASA's astronaut training and assigned to the space station (a big rotating space station). Working in zero and micro gravity and vacuum are explored as in Space Cadet, and Paul is eventually assigned to retrieve space junk, using a space tug (like the space jeeps in Space Cadet). He discovers something unexpected, dark, and mysterious in orbit. The author has done thorough scientific research and writes with entertaining style; as a Heinlein fan I found this book the next best thing.
White states in the introduction that he's a "fan of science fiction since I was eight years old. ...seduced into this life-long relationship by Robert A. Heinlein's 'juvenile' sf novels, starting with the first, Rocketship Galileo..." and deliberately tried to emulate those with Marauder Satellite. But it doesn't come off as an imitation, not in any way that's funny or insulting or anything like that. Like Heinlein's juveniles, it's more like an adult or modern YA novel with valid science and realistic characters with deeper problems than Tom Swift (like learning to get along with new crewmates and deal with adult problems).
Here's a quote from the novel: ". . . everyone aboard the Station was, in one sense or another, dedicated to it. We were the space people -- the people who'd dreamed of space and the new frontier since early childhood. Most of us were nurtured on the science fiction of visionaries like Verne, Clarke, and Heinlein. We found ourselves dedicated to the vidion of space exploration and conquest."

I first read this book when I was around 8-9 years old and had just recently discovered science fiction. I very much identified with the main character and despite the fact that the fictional universe seemed less appealing to me than Heinlein's work, I found myself re-reading this book hundreds of times through the years.
Paul was an isolated loner in the book and as a kid I could identify with this. It didn't hurt that he was also very, very competent, which gave an awkward, lonely child hope for the future. Reading about his gaining an ability to trust people, winning friends and coming into his own as a spaceman was one of the things that got me through childhood.
The book has its weaknesses: it's too short, some of the characters are very 2 dimensional and it really needed a sequel, but it's still an excellent novel for young readers.
