A small mechanical arm mounted on China's Wentian lab module has passed an on-orbit test.

The small mechanical arm is quite flexible and can perform operations with greater precision.

It can help the Shenzhou-14 crew to carry out extravehicular activities.

The small arm can also be held with the large one to form a combined arm that is capable of performing extravehicular operations with better accuracy at a larger range.

Wentian is the first lab module of China's space station.

The module will function both as a backup of the core module and as a powerful scientific experiment platform.
