How does the International Space Station make oxygen?

I found this article at Space.com (see link in related links) I hope is helps.

"Built by Russian engineers, the Elektron device aboard the space station uses electrolysis to separate water into hydrogen, which is dumped overboard, and oxygen. The 1,500-pound (680-kilogram) OGS rack works in much the same way, and will be able to provide 12 pounds of breathable oxygen daily under normal operations, NASA officials said."

What is the meaning of waxing and waning during the phases of the moon?

Those are words that aren't used much any more to express what they used to.

Waxing . . . growing. From New Moon until Full Moon, the size of the moon's

illuminated portion is steadily growing.

Waning . . . shrinking. From Full Moon until the next New Moon, the size of the moon's

illuminated portion is steadily shrinking.

1-NASA/ROSCOSMOS(Russian)

2-ESA(Europe)

3-ISRO(India)

4-JAXA(Japan)

5-CNSA(China)

ESA is placed above ISRO because,ESA is a group of european countries while ISRO is a single country.So more money,expertise,etc

What is the Difference between PSLV and GSLV?

Both PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) and GSLV are (Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle) are launch Indian vehicles used to launch satellites into polar orbit and geosyncronous orbits respectively.

The PSLV can launch satellites into sun synchronous orbits i. e. in such a way that an object on that orbit passes over any given point of the Earth's surface at the same local solar time.

The GSLV launch satellites into geostationary orbit. Geostationary orbits cause a satellite to appear stationary with respect to a fixed point on the rotating Earth. That is, if you were standing directly below a geosyncronous satellite it would always be directly above you.

The PSLV is a four-stage launch vehicle with the first stage being solid-propelled, the second liquid-propelled and third solid and the final stage cryogenic liquid. It required parts obtained from Russia.

The GSLV is a three-stage launch vehicle with the first stage being solid-propelled, the second liquid-propelled and the final stage being cryogenically propelled. It was developed by India partly to free itself from dependence on Russia.

What are the good things about spending billions of pounds on exploring space?

-- In the process of research to support the space program, new technologies are developed

which benefit all of society.

-- Like all other forms of exploration, the sum total of human knowledge is enhanced with

new facts in all fields of endeavor involved in the design, launch, and return of the hardware,

as well as the fields intentionally investigated by the missions.

-- Rather than bundle the billions of pounds into bales of large notes and launch them into space

aboard the vehicles, the money is spent to employ the thousands who work in the space program,

and to procure the hardware and supplies from countless contractors and suppliers, and ends up

in the national economy, just as most other government expenditures do.

What are the benefits of space exploration to society?

This is way too broad a question to be answered here, but I'll give you just one positive example:

Back in the 80's, a group of NASA scientists was analyzing data recovered from unmanned space vehicles that had flown by the planet Venus. They discovered that a group of chemical compounds present in Venus' atmosphere was effectively breaking down ozone (O3) into diatomic oxygen (O2) at a rapid pace. This was causing dangerous solar radiation to rain down on Venus' surface, rendering it inhospitable. (It's already inhospitable anyway though due to the extremely high temperature.) Then, the scientists wondered if those same chemicals might be present in our atmosphere, where they could do similar damage to our ozone layer. They looked, and they found them. Sure enough, these compounds, called chlorocarbons, chlorofluorocarbons, and other halogenated methanes, were not only present, but on the increase. We had to really hustle to stop the worldwide production of them, and it very well may have saved our butts from extinction. All because we sent robot probes to Venus. Thanks, NASA!

What is the North American Space Agency?

Such a thing does not exist - it is most likely an (incorrect) guess at what the acronym NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration - stands for. NASA is the US civilian space agency.

The confusion may result from the space-monitoring activities of the Canadian and US Air Force command known as NORAD - North American Aerospace Defense Command - headquartered in Colorado Spings and in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
