This satellite will prove eco friendly and less vulnerable, said by the team, led by Kyoto University and Sumitomo Forestry Co.

Why Wood?

To alleviate the vulnerability, and to fix the urgency of enhanced risks, continuously caused by launched satellites, this wooden satellite is set to build up.

In addition, it will be cheaper to make them with aluminium, which is pivotal material of the satellite. Also, this satellite can house an antenna inside, as electromagnetic waves can penetrate wood effectively.

The future launched wooden satellite will be cubic, whose length will be 10-centimetres sides. The outer part will be covered with wood and solar cells, that holds electronic substrate within. 

Tests Before Launch

Using an extravehicular experimental apparatus at International Space Station, The state-run university and the Tokyo- based wood products company is all set to ensure the durability and sustainability of wood in space.

This campaign will more likely begin in February. It will take approximately 9 months, and are expected to finalise the launch by the year 2023.
