The world's first wooden satellite is on the way, in the shape of the Finnish WISA Woodsat.

ESA materials experts are contributing a suite of experimental sensors to the mission as well as helping with pre-flight testing.

WISA Woodsat is a 10x10x10 cm "CubeSat' – a type of nanosatellite built up from standardized boxes—but with surface panels made from plywood.

Woodsat's only non-wooden external parts are corner aluminum rails used for its deployment into space plus a metal selfie stick.

The mission was initiated by Jari Makinen, Finnish writer and broadcaster.

He co-founded a company called Arctic Astronautics, which markets fully functional replicas of orbit-ready CubeSats for education, training and hobby purposes.

The world's first wooden satellite is set to launch into orbit this year to test the suitability of wood for use in extreme conditions.
