First Scottish-built satellite UKube-1 to launch in 2014


www.bbc.co.uk said:

A date has been set for the launch of the first satellite to be built in Scotland.

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.
