what does an "age" mean?
by age i mean, stone age, iron age, age of steam etc, after all there are people still living in the jungles now so "steam age"" means nothing to them

One of Webster's definitions of age is "a period in history or human progress" and refers to human progress. So even one astronaut is progress enough to call the entire period "the space age".

The word 'age' here means a period or era in history.
