First Scottish-built satellite UKube-1 to launch in 2014
UKube-1 will begin its journey to Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan this week.
The satellite will then be launched on 10 February next year aboard a Russian Soyuz-2 rocket.
UKube-1 is the UK Space Agency's first CubeSat mission. It is relatively small satellite but it will pack in several experiments.
