The Space Race pushed US international. prominence and fueled private sector entrepreneurship from the 60s to the 80s. Computers did the same from the 80s to the 00s. What industry has the same demand and range of technologies to make the next leap?

Prosthetic step from laser surgery is night vision/telescopic vision, your choice of eye color.

Robotics and artificial intelligence.

I'd say this or bio/cybernetics, perhaps?

We're going to see a revolution in the way medicine is administrated.

But I'd easily argue tech/artificial intelligence will eclipse that.

Bioengineering and genetic therapies.

Would be, if they would stop denial of using that discarded genetic material from fertilization attempts...

LOL. There's plenty besides that. Pluripotent cells from marrow and umbilical cords are a prime reservoir for tissue culture and organ growth. I'm more focused on neuromodulation.

Alternative energy.

Totally true. The generation and distribution and monitoring alone are huge. Now add in materials and storage and services and R&D, and you have a national strategic initiative.

I think the number of technologies abound. What is lacking is the funding and direction for these technologies. Our land grant universities were designed to be this source but we stopped funding them.

We changed from viewing higher education as a public good and now look at it as a private good.

I think the advances in Dutch Oven technology have maxed out with the invention of the Crock Pot.

Do you infer new non-stick tech will be the next breakthrough?
