Some of Popular Science’ favorite covers.
Popular Science has partnered with Google to offer its entire 137-year archive for free browsing. Each issue appears just as it did at its original time of publication, complete with period advertisements.
As you will soon see, it’s an amazing resource. Aside from bringing back memories for longtime readers, as a whole the archive beautifully encapsulates over a century of PopSci’s fascination with the future, and science and technology’s incredible potential to improve our lives. Tracing our dreams and visions of the future back through time, you’ll see that not a lot has changed. Some things we projected with startling accuracy, and others remain today what they were then–dreams. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
In the future, they will be adding more advanced features for searching and browsing, so stay tuned.
