In the US, a commotion: concern caused by the Chinese robot hand in space

The giant robotic arm of China’s national space station has caused concern in the United States, Free News writes with reference to the South China Morning Post.

We are talking about a special device with a length of 10 meters, which can lift objects weighing up to 20 tons outside the station. The arm should be used to grab incoming spaceships and assist in docking.

The Chinese side claims that the device does not pose a danger, and also recalled that some of its satellites are already equipped with similar mechanisms designed to collect space debris. The commander of the US Space Forces, General James Dickinson, in a report to Congressmen, expressed the opinion that the Chinese development poses a danger to the United States since Beijing can potentially attack American satellites, including GPS, which will lead to the disabling of aircraft carriers, the latest fighter jets and other weapons that use this technology.
