We fulfilled the dream set by President Kennedy on May 25th 1961 "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth."

So, I think this was the crowning achievement of NASA, and the United States, and quite possibly the world in way of exploration.

I'll save some my other NASA gripes for later, today we remember the achievement, tomorrow we'll talk on following it up.
