World's first wooden satellite

The first ever wooden satellite is going into Earth’s orbit by the end of 2021.

“The Wooden satellite with a selfie stick will surely bring goodwill and raise smiles, but essentially this is a serious science and technology endeavor. In addition to testing plywood, the satellite will demonstrate accessible radio amateur satellite communication, host several secondary technology experiments, validate theKitsat platform in orbit, and popularize space technology to the public”, says WISA Woodsat mission manager Jari Mäkinen from Arctic Astronautics.
