No, "back" is not a verb in that text.
I am not a teacher.
The word 'back' could be removed without significantly affecting the meaning.
It is an adverb and refers to a place that has been previously left, whether explicitly mentioned or understood implicitly. It is often used in the phrase 'back home'.
In your example it's 'back on earth', the place that the robot came from.
No. It is "worn by someone" who is "back on earth". "Back" here is used to denote geographical distance. From the speaker's point of view, earth is quite a long way back/a long way away.
"I live in London but my family still live back in Manchester." This suggests that I used to live in Manchester but I have left
