Yeah, but I'd still consider landing humans on and returning from the moon to be humanity's greatest accomplishment. We haven't really done much more impressive in the past 53 years. Just sending increasingly fancier technology to the same places.

I can think of at least two more impressive things. The LHC at CERN, and LIGO. At least if you ask me.

I would say that the biggest accomplishment from the space program is weather satellites, they've saved who knows how many lives over the decades just because we know when a hurricane is coming before it appears on the horizon.
