Journal melding science with radical politics; early issues were produced by autonomous collectives taking turns producing individual numbers, while post-1975 issues were edited in a more centralized fashion. Early issues include materials such as communications from the Black Panthers on providing free science education and critiques of population control (one cover bears the Che Guevara quote "It is easier to kill a guerrilla in the womb than in the mountains"); later issues address topics such as the Star Wars missile defense system and the social challenges of automation in the workplace.
