The synopsis for "Net Assets" is:
"Once upon a time, there was an agency of the American government called the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. NASA was tasked with the exploration and development of space. Being a government agency, it was very bad at the job. But also, being a government agency, NASA made damned sure that no one else would do a better job.
"And then the bureacrats' world came to an end."
In the early 21st century, someone has finally had it with the lost dreams and broken promises of government-sponsored space access. It begins quietly on the Internet, then grows into a small private company determined to do what many believed impossible: Private, affordable, regular orbital launches. For anyone. For everyone.
But as has been noted, "Ad astra per aspera."
This is a stimulating and provocative libertarian science fiction novel - don't miss it!
