Stanford 'gecko gripper' tested on the International Space Station

Stanford's 'gecko gripper', a robotic mechanical attachment with gecko inspired adhesive, developed by Mark Cutkosky and Marco Pavone's labs was tested this April in the International Space Station on one of the station's free-flying Astrobee robots to see how it performs in a microgravity environment. According to Pavone, this success is just the first stage in a three-phase plan of experiments to showcase the use of gecko-inspired adhesives in a variety of space-based applications focused on the eventual goal of cleaning up space. Link
