We took 146 years of Popular Science illustrations and covers to animate a kind of PopSci universe—a timeline of great moments in science history!

The cool thing about working for Popular Science is getting to say you work for a magazine that’s 146 years old. Think on that for a second. ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-SIX YEARS OF POPULAR SCIENCE. Einstein wasn’t even born when the first issue mailed out. (For the record, baby Al came on the scene in 1879—seven years after PopSci number one.)

Well, we here at PopSci thought about all this and more. What we wound up exploring is what the universe looks like after 146 years of Popular Science.




Because in the last century and a half of unprecedented discovery and advancement, PopSci has done more than just tell you about it in a magazine. We’ve taken up real estate in your brain and painted a picture of what the world—through those discoveries and advancements—truly looks like.

So, we took 146 years of Popular Science art and illustrations to show you what we mean (also, Neil deGrasse Tyson may or may not eat Pluto in this video)…
