If you were born after the death of printed magazines then you can be forgiven for the confusion you might feel about what PopSci is.  For those who have been geeks for a long while, you probably have fond memories of the magazine Popular Science.  Now you can revisit that feeling as Google and PopSci have teamed up together to put the entire 137 years of PopSci online, searchable and readable for free.  Keep up with the newer publications or delve back into the past years to see what they thought the future we are currently living in would look like.

We’ve partnered with Google to offer our entire 137-year archive for free browsing. Each issue appears just as it did at its original time of publication, complete with period advertisements. It’s an amazing resource that beautifully encapsulates our ongoing fascination with the future, and science and technology’s incredible potential to improve our lives. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

In the future, we’ll be adding more advanced features for searching and browsing, but for now, enter any keyword into the box below and dive in.
