Popular Science puts up almost 140 years of back issues onli
PopSci has partnered with Google to offer their entire 137-year archive for free browsing. Each issue appears just as it did at its original time of publication, complete with period advertisements. And today we're excited to announce you can browse the full archive on PopSci.com.
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 humanity's dreams and visions of the future back through time, you'll see that not a lot has changed. Some things were projected with startling accuracy, and others remain today what they were then--dreams.
