My story happens in the near future on the research station located on Callisto, Jupiter's second largest moon. The mission has just started when the crew discovers an abandoned alien station. Whoever made it is dead or gone long time ago.
There's not much useful things left but the scientists manage to get an understanding of alien's synthetic biology.
How to prevent the sudden influx of alien scientific and technological knowledge from instantly advancing humanity's technology thus propelling my story setting from its near future into far future? I want people to learn some useful things, but not so much that they would instantly become too advanced.
