    High school students of the future use a device called "time magnifying glass" to see how their country was built. A scene from the "In Year 2017" filmstrip.

    Nearly three decades since the demise of the Soviet Union, this photo gallery offers you a glimpse into how the people of the USSR imagined the world of the 21st century and what kind of technological marvels they thought would appear then.

    Nuclear-powered supersonic planes, cities built atop straits, flying weather control stations — these are just a few of the inventions envisioned by the Soviets decades ago as they tried to imagine what the future would look like.
