Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
- Arthur C. Clarke

Science Science Research is one of the four technology disciplines available at the Library. It unlocks many economic buildings and upgrades, and reduces research costs and times of all subsequent research.

Benefits Edit

Like all Library research, Science Science research has a total of 7 levels to research. Each level researched...

Science Science 1 (Written Word), along with a Dock, allows land units to travel to other landmasses on Sea maps. Science Science 6 (Electronics) reveals the entire map for the player; Fog of War effects still apply. Science Science 7 (Computerization) permanently reveals the player's own territory and allied territory. Science Science research is also required to unlock the Granary, Lumber Mill and Smelter, as well as unlocking their production technologies, including the University.
