Book Description

Ryan Richmond has dreamed about going to space since the age of seven. Reading space updates—and seeing pictures of Neil Armstrong on the lunar surface in National Geographic—was the ignition of this dream.

Growing up in a middle class neighborhood of Henderson, Nevada his aspirations of space exploration seemed unattainable. Nonetheless, Ryan proved to be far from ordinary, and by the time he left high school he was about to sell his first business for $100,000 and invest the money. A short time later he was the proud new owner of his first space company, a business started in a derelict old building down the road from his childhood home.

Being the resourceful young man he was, Ryan took advantage of the downsizing European and Russian space programs by hiring some of their leading space experts to work in his new venture program, Astermine Co. Fueled by up and coming investments into Qualcomm and Google, Ryan’s business-savvy grew and Astermine branched out into California where he recruited some of the country’s top aerospace engineers, astro-physicists and scientists whom had been tossed to the wayside by NASA’s downsizing shuttle program.

With his own program now well established, Ryan and his ragtag group of experts have begun to develop the spacecraft of the future. There’s only one problem standing in their way: The U.S. government has renewed its interest in space travel, and they want Astermine!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Still working for me! 8 Jun. 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    A good continuation of the story and it is plenty believable. However, I still think that the author's characters, just like the Invasion USA series, tend to ride their luck and don't have problems to deal with. Hey ho, still a good read though.
