How It Works  |  Issue 104  


THE SKIES OF TOMORROW, TODAY: FLYING CARS
When The Jetsons debuted on television in 1962, astronaut John Glen had just become the first American to orbit Earth. But during the optimism of the early space age, when rockets, satellites and nuclear power were on everyone’s mind, it must have seemed like we would all be flying to work in a hover car like George Jetson within a few years. Yet despite ever more lifelike flying cars on screen — from Luke’s landspeeder in Star Wars to those in the recent Total Recall remake — we’re still waiting for them to make the leap from science fiction to science fact. However, that wait may soon be over.
