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).
Space technology is more than just booster technology. There's lots of TL8 things that have been put into space.
I don't know any 3e, so there is no chance that I am talking about 3e rules by accident.
