You Too Could Build A SatelliteThe world's first wooden satellite will launch this year By Tereza Pultarova - Senior Writer 6/14/2021 A Scandinavian cubesat will test how plywood withstands the space environment. Woodsat will test how plywood performs in space. (Sorry, can't load the picture.) The world’s first "wooden satellite" is preparing to launch this year. WISA Woodsat, a nanosatellite that measures 4 by 4 by 4 inches (10 by 10 by 10 centimeters) and weighs about 2.2 lbs. (1 kilogram), uses a special type of coated plywood (called WISA) for its surface panels. The wooden satellite will launch as part of a mission, designed by Arctic Astronautics, a Finnish company manufacturing cubesat kits for students. The aim of the mission is to test the behavior and durability of these plywood panels in the extreme conditions of space and assess its suitability for future missions. The satellite will be outfitted with two cameras, one of which will be attached to a metal selfie stick, allowing the mission team to observe how the satellite's plywood surface changes in the space environment. From www.space.com Of course you need to have a good reputation with a country's space agency.
