I can honestly state that when I was growing up in the 60's I felt after Apollo 11 that the US would have men on Mars within 15 years.. of course that never happened. In stead the US manned missions were stagnated with Skylab and the Space Shuttle. Both series were successful but they did not father the exploration of space.
