By drilling holes into Mars, we can learn more about its geology, and possibly discover relics which may give more hints for its history, allowing us to better model the formation of our solar system.
Artificial bones can heal broken limbs, of course.
Large primes are used to encrypt messages, allowing credit cards to be more secure, messages by the army to be less decodable, and essentially make more secure any cryptographical password or phrase.
Fixing the date of extinction allows us to better our understanding of the events surrounding that period, and thus be better able to discover a way to avert a similar crisis. Knowing earth-like planets can allow us to look for more or study specific ones, and possibly find extraterrestrial life.
Knowing the method bacteria use to turn an ion into gold could lead to an organic way of us doing the same method, thus making more gold and possibly be able to discover how to do this with other elements.
Needle free vaccine allows people who have trypanophobia (or fear of needles) to stay healthy, and may be a cheaper and cleaner method than the current one.
Making the mammal tree of life allows us to better understand the ancestors of current mammals. With that knowledge we could work towards solving some of the great mysteries of biology through retroactive study.
