What is the relationship between successful moonshots and quality of institutions?

Successful moonshots how do they happen? Seems surprising to me we’ve had so many given my knowledge of most institutions. Or is it that institutions don’t actually need to be that good? If so, what is it that generates success?

What is the rate of scientific progress? Is most progress from science or industry? Or changing systems / paradigm-shifts?
