SCOTLAND’S first space satellite is set to launch into orbit today.

UKube-1, designed and manufactured by Clyde Space in Glasgow will travel into space aboard a Russian Soyuz-2 rocket.

The nanosatellite is described by Clyde Space as being one of the most advanced of its kind and will carry a payload of five experiments that UK students and the public can interact with.
