Space programs

With all this coverage about the anniversary of moon landing, were they able to tell us about the scientific value of mood landing. I like it when they cover up the military-propaganda purposes of space missions by talking about "science" and a "cure for cancer." Aside from Tang drinks and some specially equipped watches, I am yet to see the scientific value of those programs. I remember I once heard Chomsky say that the space program is the biggest propaganda program of the 20th century.
