Popular Mechanics in June

The idea of taking off from a dead stop has been around almost as long as the dream of human flight itself: the first aircraft prototypes of the late 19th century - that were yet to achieve sustained flight - relied on catapults to become airborne. The new issue of Popular Mechanics explains how the idea Уtook off.Ф And back on Russian roads, PM editors test drove an electric BMW i3 and explained how Moscow is preparing to receive driverless cars.

Also in this issue:
Sleeping in class. Is it possible to learn in a state of conscious dreaming?
