A collection of material about science, technology, and the future from throughout the long twentieth century.

How did people think about the future in the past - and why does that matter now? This database gathers together material about science and technology published in popular magazines and newspapers from the UK and the USA throughout the long twentieth century. It shows how visions of future possibilities were made and remade, week by week, month by month, and year by year.

This is not a comprehensive database. It is a work in progress and we welcome your participation in its further development.
