Unabomber Targeted Scientists

According to Traub, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) dubbed Kaczynski as the “Unabomber” because his targets appeared to be universities and airlines. Reportedly, Kaczynski mailed deadly handmade bombs to those he believed were destroying nature through technological advancement. In addition, he also bombed an American Airlines flight which changed how packages are boarded on airplanes and sent in the U.S.

For 17 years, the Unabomber led authorities on the longest manhunt in U.S. history before he was eventually captured in 1996. Reports say Kaczynski pleaded guilty after firing his lawyers when they attempted to set an insanity defense for him.
