The Chinese government is drafting a plan to boost China’s robot development in key manufacturing fields, and to improve their capacity to produce high-end robots independently. One example is this robotic arm, assembled in a satellite. A satellite can use the hand to refuel, repair, or even defend itself from debris and fragments flying through space. "It's functionally similar to any industrial robot that we can see on the ground, but because it needs to work in outer space, it requires much more.
