Technology of the Twenty-first Century

The twenty-first century has seen leaps and bounds in scientific advancements. Many commonplace technologies were not available as recently as the late 1990s. The modern technological revolution started, like so many others, with the development of a single revolutionary technology that transformed the world.

Quantum Computing

In 1985, the world’s first Quantum Computer was developed at Bell Laboratories by Robert Night. Night’s original quantum mainframe has become the basis for all modern computers. Eschewing the traditional model of computing based on simple transistors, Night developed the probabilistic transistor. The probabilistic transistor is capable of advanced mathematical calculations previously deemed too complex for traditional computing. This single invention is largely responsible for nearly all scientific advances in the following decades.

The quantum mainframe allowed for unprecedented molecular simulation and imaging, immediately kickstarting the genetic revolution. With advanced sub-atomic mathematical models available at a few keystrokes, the human genome was mapped in 1987 in less than an hour. Without the aid of the quantum mainframe, this task might have taken decades. Shortly thereafter, the quantum mainframe was used to explore new potential fuel sources.

Nearly every field of research, from military technology to human-computer interfaces were radically altered by this new paradigm of computing. The generation of reliable models of atoms and molecules is undoubtedly the most significant discovery in human history, second only to the invention of quantum computing.

Genetic Engineering

The mapping of the human genome led quickly to a new biomedical revolution. Not only was the quantum mainframe exceedingly valuable for understanding the pathogenesis of many debilitating diseases, it also proved an excellent way to modify and test alterations to the human genome. Effective simulation of new compounds and organics lead to new processes in drug manufacturing and biofabrication. New biofabrication techniques gave scientists the ability to create synthetic muscle tissues, replacement organs, and even synthetic brain cells.

Cybernetics & Bionics

First came the introduction of new types of prostheses, artificial limbs for those who had lost them; this was particularly effective for the treatment of Tolliver’s Disease. New prosthetics could be controlled by integrating synthetic tissue with mechanical parts, allowing the body to control them as though they were native. New lines of bionics improved over each previous generation. Today, some experimental new models of bionics are almost entirely without mechanical components, comprised nearly entirely of synthetic muscle tissues.

One of the most significant breakthroughs was the invention of the Direct Neural Interface. These devices allow data to be streamed from a device (typically a computer) directly to and from the operator’s brain. This breakthrough has revolutionized the way we interact with computers and led to the discovery of the Metaverse.

Power & Transportation

In 1992, the quantum mainframe was used to research stable molecules which could be used for more efficient power sources. Scientists quickly identified CHOOCH2, a compound with significantly more stored energy than other contemporary fuel sources. CHOOCH2 could be manufactured through organic processes on a large scale. Additionally, its relatively high potential energy by volume made it an ideal solution for most types of portable power cells, revolutionizing transportation and portable electronics.

DNA

While the production of CHOOCH2 continues to raise environmental and safety concerns, CHOOCH2 has become a necessary component of everyday life. From automobiles to space-planes, most contemporary vehicles now use CHOOCH2 for fuel. The high-energy output of CHOOCH powers the colonization of the solar system.

Commercial Space Travel & Lunar Colonies

Reusable rockets, developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s, benefitted the most from the discovery of CHOOCH2. The enormous energy output from CHOOCH2 can power spacecraft through multiple launches and reentries, making spaceplanes an efficient method of transport. In 1994, American Airlines launched the first commercial spaceplane, affording passengers the ability to travel faster than ever before. The efficiency of orbital travel has led to the development of several permanent space-platforms and orbital colonies, both private and public. Without the establishment of the Near-Earth-Orbit colonies, the Lunar Colony Tycho may not have been possible.

Tycho is the first non-terrestrial permanent human settlement, constructed on the near side of the moon. Formally established in 2001 as a research base, it is now home to nearly a million people. Built in the Tycho crater, south of Mare Nubium, commercial space flights have allowed a number of families to establish themselves as permanent residents there. The lunar economy is driven primarily by high-tech industries and lunar mining.
