Have people on this planet gone further in making progress since the moon landing and first walk?
Do you think that we, as human beings, have made any great leaps for man kind since the first moon walk?
Yes we most definitely have-just look at the large amount of data that has been collected by unmanned probes to the outtermost moons of our solar system. Saturn's moon Titan for example, is one good example. And the recent Mars landing of the rover about a month ago, that safely landed that craft on the Martian surface by a crane. No that is quite an accomplishment since our last moon landings. We have come along way not only scientifically speaking, but also from a technological one as well. And we have made some great progress since Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moons surface.
Thanks for your positive answer and well appreciated by all who read it. JLbowden.
WOW, that is a really good question. It depends on what you use as a measuring stick I suppose. All in all, I would say yes, but we have a long way to go. Long way.
Absolutely. Here's a short list:
Invented computers and microprocessors capable of calculation speeds and memory storage unheard of in the rope-core days of Apollo.
Made computers small enough to fit in your pocket and affordable to people of even modest means.
Connected millions of computers in a vast global network allowing billions of people access to a vast body of knowledge previously available only to a privileged few.
Figured out the standard model of particle physics and discovered most of the elementary particles it predicts.
Sequenced the genomes of humans and several dozen other animals.
Invented NEXRAD radar, saving countless lives by forecasting severe storms and tornadoes.
Invented GPS, an interconnected network of satellites allowing anyone with a basic handheld device to find their location anywhere in the world.
Invented magnetic resonance imaging and other medical scanning technologies to allow doctors to find tumors and other anomalies without a single scalpel cut.
Sent robotic probes to all eight classical planets, a few asteroids, and some comets, with two missions to minor planets en route.
Built an orbiting science laboratory the size of a football field in low Earth orbit
Placed telescopes in orbit capable of seeing back to a few hundred thousand years after the beginning of the universe.
That's just off the top of my head - I may have missed a few dozen. The Moon landings were an amazing triumph of engineering and technology, but not our peak. We've continued to advance since then.

We live in a small apt building and our adjoining neighbor has been driving us up the wall for over two years now. She is to say the least downright evil and crazy. It all started when we submitted complaints of the overwhelming smell of dog piss coming from her balcony. Ever since then she has...
