Default Re: Approaching TL9?

Not that close actually. While our computers are probably at early TL9, we lack the fission and fusion power capabilities of TL9 (and our solar panels are not nearly as efficient as TL9 solar panels). In addition, our biotechnology has lagged due to relying on for-profit corporations who would rather buy up generic drug manufacturers and jack up the prices 1,000% than produce new drugs. When it comes to space technology, we are solidly TL7, as we have not really invested in new technology development since the 1970s (Elon Musk's technologies would probably be considered late TL7 designs). In essence, I would say that we were mid-TL8 (early-TL9 Computers, late-TL7 Space).
