Really not much to debate here either, just opinions.
I have thought if what would happen if the Wright brothers were shown a US space shuttle and asked to figure it out?
I think they were pretty darn smart,and could get a good general idea somewhat.
But would lack to much to do anything with it, untill a variety of tech caught up with the time.
But back engineering from a craft 1000+ years more advanced might be imposiible?
For some hundred years or such?
