like about around over technological level.
As has been stated, all planets did not form at the same time.
Another thing you should consider, is that even if a civilization started
developing at the same time we did, we lost alot of science and
information from the Greeks, and we went through nearly a millenia
of science/technological stagnation.
Even now there are many technologies that are being held back, or
that have been banned simply because aspects of our culture don't
Add to that science/technology is also effected by the capitalistic sys-
tems, a good example, is that had we kept giving the space program
lots of money after the moon landings, ther'e a good chance we would
have landed a person on Mars already, colonized the moon, and would
already have thousands of people living in orbital habitats.
