1 lead to 2 ( no, there is no image there ), which in turn led to 3 and 4.
What is 2?
While you are at it, put fundas about 1,3 and 4 also

udupendra , Arun Krishnamoorthy , srikanth , prasanth , yaksha , Abhishek got it almost right.

1. “Amazing Stories” cover showing Anthony Rogers, which went on to become Bucks Rogers

3. Duck Dodgers in th 24 and 1/2th century was a parody on Buck Rogers

4. The famous rocket man on a modern Jet pack.

so, 2 was Buck Rogers. The reason why a comic character made it into a tech quiz was that the jet pack, which the rocket man is wearing in the 4th pic is a concept which more or less evolved from the method Buck Rogers uses to travel. Therefore, the jet pack was the central connect.

    2. Buck Rogers.

    1. The Amazing Stories issue where Buck Rogers made his debut

    2. Duck Dodgers, a parody of Buck Rogers

    It’s 2-1-3-4, and not 2-1-2-3 as numbered in my earlier comment.

  3.

Buck Rogers has been credited with bringing into popular media the concept of space exploration, following in the footsteps of literary pioneers such as H.G. Wells (one of the editors
    A ten-minute Buck Rogers film has recently been shown in some places in US as part of science fairs…
    Buck Rogers’ name has become proverbial in such expressions as “Buck Rogers outfit” for a protective suit that looks like a spacesuit. That kinda explains Pic 4 i hope. and Pic 3 is probably the Daffy Duck spoofs on Buck called the Duck Dodgers series…

    So is Pic2 – Buck Rogers????
