The world was changed when, in 1969, a human first walked on the moon. The US Manned Space program ran from the late 1960s to 2011, and in that time launched many people into space and performed countless research tasks.

Now the program has come to an end, with Atlantis making its final landing in July 2011. What has the world gained since the program first launched? And what have we lost now that it has ended?
