Dr. Stone is a manga that never ceases to amaze its readers by doing the impossible. Building things like a telephone or heavy machinery is child’s play for these young scientists of the stone age.
We’ve already seen Senku and Team Science do the unthinkable and prove themselves capable, making it difficult to doubt their abilities. But will they be able to recreate the backbone of the modern world, i.e., the internet?
Dr. Stone manga chapter 217 presented the need for the internet after everyone voted for a round-trip rocket to be made instead of the one-day rocket.
To accomplish such a feat, they’ll need the help of everyone present in the world and even de-petrify more to complete it on time.
After Kohaku locates Why-Man, preparations for the final rocket that can carry people begin. Chrome and Suika got worried as they’ve been working on a round-trip rocket so that Senku and the others have a chance of coming back.
While that was impossible at first, Senku and Xeno gave the green light to Chrome’s idea after a democratic vote for a round-trip rocketship. But to make something vast and complicated like that, they’ll be needing as much help as they can get.
When we’re talking about connecting people, the first thing that comes to our mind is the internet. By the same thought process, Senku announced that they would now create the internet in this stone world.
Considering the speed at which everyone in Dr. Stone works, they’ll have the power of the internet with them in the next chapter, and the construction for the round-trip rocket will finally start.
One thing that’s been bothering me about the internet is how it can be misused in many ways, even during the stone age.
The culprit behind the accidental petrification is still not caught, and we cannot forget how the people of the stone world have fought among themselves multiple times.
Such details pique your interest in the heroes’ fates and what awaits them.
