I would also like to add that the topic says that nothing has been accomplished, not that the cost was worth it. If you recognize that useful contributions have been made, I matter how small, then you have to vote against the topic.

Pretty much all of it you have seen or used in some form of it.

but there haven't been anything significant enough to change mankind daily lives... sure what an achievement we made it to the moon and saw planets... but we are on earth we aren't massively affected by this... so there is no accomplishment

This topic is poorly framed. If the intent was "Nothing has been accomplished except to waste money" then I would strongly disagree. Do a quick search for NASA technologies that are used now (Wikipedia has an article on "spin off technology") and you can see that there are many things ranging from memory foam to water purification to solar panels to scratch resistant sunglasses to infant formula that have benefited from the research of the space program.
