In 2020 we'll have real transnewtonian elements before Aurora C# comes out.
It has to be true, 2015 had hoverboards, flying cars and mr fusion. The eugenics war happened in the 90's, 1984 had us overthrow the dystopian governments of Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia and 2025 is when an Aurora campaign begins, Its VERY LIKELY that TNEs start being discovered before our first ships start being launched in 5 years, t takes time to build them right?
This must be the year.
Also does anyone remember back in the 1890's when we fought that war with mars? Thank god we discovered teleportation and they were vunerable to bird flu....

I don't know which I'm looking forward to more this year: C# Aurora or GM's release of an economically viable portable sustained fusion reactor.

One of these is more likely than the other...

Sorry Steve :D

Well, according to this article, it'll be around 2040 if the Brits have anything to say about it.

Fusion has been 20 years off for the last 70 years.

Yea, folks were a bit too optimistic early on about this stuff. Look at solar power technology, we discovered that effect way back in the earlier half of the 19th century, couldn't put it to commercial use until like, the 60's or 70's on calculators and other crap, and only now are we actually able to produce viable, large scale solar devices for market use.

Even atop that, the reset time for the research is crazy, considering you need a decade to build a new power plant to try out new theories and developments from the last one. I'm really not surprised its taking this long, we're just biased by the lens of recent developments in much simpler relative things.

Hardly the first time Battletech's "future of the 1980s" history has looked weird.
