Cutting-edge technology is back to nature. A company has a new satellite that is predominantly from plywood. The satellite is called Woodsat. It is the brainchild of engineer Jari Makinen, co-founder of a Finnish company Arctic Astronautics. It is just 10cm cubed in size. He has already successfully his DIY, but high-tech, device in the stratosphere. He it to a weather balloon, which took it to an altitude of 30km above Earth - just before the endless expanse of space itself. The balloon (as planned) and Woodsat safely back to Earth. Mr Makinen happily that all communications equipment the harsh conditions.

Makinen plans to Woodsat into space later this year. He said it the realisation of a dream. He a company to fully functional wooden replicas of orbit-ready miniature satellites called CubeSats. These are for space research, education and hobby purposes. Makinen explained: "I've always making model planes that involve a lot of wooden parts. Having in the space education field, this got me wondering why we don't any wooden materials into space." He up with the idea for Woodsat in 2017 and "the project just snowballed". He said: "We found commercial backing, and a berth on an Electron launcher from Rocket Lab in New Zealand."
