I don't remember many of the details, but here goes. I was reading the book in early 1985, so it has to have been published before that. Likely pre-1983. The main character is a female astronaut. She is part of a team that is being sent to build/man/repair a spacestation. The setting is near future, bulking NASA style spacesuits, set within the solar system. It was likely written before the time of Sally Rides first shuttle flight. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
