    sophistication means...

    Hello, everybody!

    https://youtu.be/vDwzmJpI4io?t=1760
    at 29:40 it goes:
    - And we have sufficient scale and sophistication to be able to take people to Mars.

    Usually I heard this word used when talking about fashion, language, manners and things of that nature.
    But what does it mean in the context above? detalisation? complexity?

    Re: sophistication means...

    I think detalisation is not a word.

    Complexity is a start. Advancement would be another word one could use. Technological advancement is a more complete synonym.
