Chinese scientists have developed a robotic arm for garbage collecting and separating, which was originally created for space missions and was first launched by the Long March-7 rocket in 2016. The arm, designed and built by the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology (CALT), has been tested to remove space debris, including rocket emissions and fragments from disintegration, erosion and collision. It turns out that the high precision achieved in space is also very useful for sorting household garbage on Earth.
