From official release/information:

Fans of Bova's Grand Tour of the solar system, will find Powersat an interesting diversion featuring one of the series favorite characters, Dan Randolph, founder of the space resource company, Astro Corp. The story takes place not too long after Dan's retirement as an astronaut and the founding of Astro. He's trying to get a space plane going, to service the powersats he wants to build for an energy starved, world. Bova draws on the Burt Rutan's recent success and America's 'War on Terror' for inspiration so the book hovers on that knife-edge of Near Future SF/Contemporary Techno-fic...but either way its another exciting ride up to orbit with a master rocketeer.
