What I find interesting that despite how far we have come we are still mostly relying on the heating up of water to make steam to turn turbines to make most of our power,

Not exactly come along way have we.
We still have the wheel too. Sometimes in engineering, something just works so well there is no need for a replacement, The challenge is to make it more efficient, reliable and safer.
