They'd be at 1940 levels in around 100 years. Another 100 years and they'd lap us. Another 500 years they are at Tollen levels.

Well, given they started off with flying recorder balls that seem to be practically indestuctible and able to record pretty much forever, I would say they started on a level above us when they landed on the planet.

True, they would have stuff to get a head start, but they would also have to redo a lot. WE saw no laptops or other databases for medicine. No tools..

They are casting iron and bronze within 2 months.
They are making steel within 2 years.
Engines and hydraulics in 4 years. Along with this is lumber mills and houses.
Concrete in 5 years. Reinforced concrete structures just as soon as we've got the vehicles to haul it.
copper wire and motor/generators in 10 years.
refining in 12 years.
Aluminum in 15 years.

This is one heck of a head start for the next generation.

When Young Died they had Petroleum Lamps and Candles and I am pretty sure that Young lived longer then 15 Years after they got there.

I would say it took them 100 years to start laying the foundations for an industrially advanced society.

You would need to build the factories to make the basic building elements for the structures before you can begin mass production.

So, say 100 years to build, almost by hand, a small factory to produce Steel, Copper, cement, plastics, glass etc etc

ALOT longer than 15 years.

I agree, 15 years is way to short, esp with so few people.
Around 100 years - 3-4 generations, wed be looking at around 300-400 people, enough to get some real work done in many fields.

I would imagine it would be one hell of a bell curve tho.
After they begun producing strong materials it would ramp up real fast in their development.

Even North America hasn't past 500 years in term of technology development borrowed from various sources around the world.
