Leinster, Murray: Space Platform. v1; 19 June 2008

From 1953, a science fiction novel by Murray Leinster. Prepared from the Project Gutenberg text. The teaser from the back cover of the book:

TOP SECRET
In the little desert town of Bootstrap stands a huge metal shed. In the shed men are building an object that can change the history of mankind. It is a Space Platform. Propelled to an orbit 4000 miles from Earth this platform will serve as the starting place for man’s exploration of mysterious outer space.
Space Platform tells the exciting story of a young man helping to build this first station. With scientific accuracy and imagination Murray Leinster, one of the world’s top science-fiction writers, describes the building and launching of the platform. Here is a fast-paced story of sabotage and murder directed against a project more secret and valuable than the atom bomb!

Cover illustration by Earle Bergey, a prolific pulp magazine and pinup illustrator.

You're welcome. I've been meaning to get around to formatting it for months and finally got to it. There's been lots of "golden age" science fiction put up on Project Gutenberg and not many of them have made it to Mobilereads yet.
