How did Soviet people see the future? This is clearly shown by the old magazine “Technologies to the youth” that first was issued in the USSR in 1933. The authors imagined underground cities, nuclear aicrafts, elevators to the bottom of the sea and many other cool things. Some of their predictions actually came true.
Each issue of the magazine had a special section “Window to the Future” where authors tried to foresee the imahe of the 21st century. We want to show you the most curious ideas printed on the pages of the earliest issues (up to the 1970s) of the Soviet magazine.
