45 years ago He Glued Finger-Sized Pieces of Wood

Graduate student John Harris is injured when he opens a box left by 37-year-old mathematician and serial bomber Theodore Kaczynski aka The Unabomber in Northwestern University Technological Institute, Evanston, Illinois, United States.

Harris suffered minor cuts and burns. Bomb #2 consisted of a cigar box and a pipe bomb triggered by a battery-operated filament that ignited explosive powders. The package contained a number of small finger-sized pieces of wood glued to its outer container.
