Scientists have developed a unique device for collecting garbage in the ocean
The problem of garbage on the planet has recently become very serious.
A special part in this matter is garbage in the ocean.
Scientists are looking for new ways to solve the problem.
Not so long ago, between California and Hawaii launched a floating device. It collects plastic waste from the surface of the water.
The developers claim that with the help of such an aggregate, it is possible to collect 1.8 trillion units of garbage.
The garbage collection machine is a 600-meter device that is capable of catching garbage not only from the surface of the water, but also at a depth of up to 3 meters.
The first launch of the "trap" took place under the close supervision of biologists. They recorded how the device works and does not have a harmful effect on the environment.
Unfortunately, the first attempt to launch the device was not crowned with success: it fell apart from the waves with the wind and stopped holding the assembled plastic. Repair took four months.
