[i]A British study, commissioned by NASA, has concluded that many of the world's greatest expeditions, including the Apollo moon missions, were either short-term or long-term failures - or both. Although hailed as heroes, Raleigh, Shackleton and other explorers made less of an impact on world affairs than previously thought, says the report.
...Apollo achieved its goal of putting men on the moon before the Russians, but the equipment used had no application for other projects. The programme cost £70bn in today's money. NASA has since struggled to find a reason to put men into space; hence the interest [in the study by] executives setting up the Constellation programme which will take astronauts back to the moon next decade and later to Mars.[/i]
