As government control of science funding increased, and government spent billions convincing young scholars that only government-funded academia was a fulfilling science career, competition grew at a rapid pace. And collaboration declined.
In 1965, 42.4% of U.S. adults admitted to smoking on surveys. By 2017 that has dropped to 14% and that is due in large part to awareness efforts and to modern smoking cessation efforts.

. While the hyperbolic claims they made were ridiculous, they were no more ridiculous than what other media outlets did to grab viewers, and the technology was outstanding.

The term sexting has been used to describe incidents where people take nude or semi-nude photos or videos of themselves and exchange that content via text or private social media messages.

As the Apollo 11 Lunar Module approached the moon's surface for the first manned landing, commander Neil Armstrong switched off the auto-targeting feature of the LM's computer and flew the spacecraft manually.
A new video, created at Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration, shows what Armstrong saw out his window as the lander descended — and that means we can see for yourself why he took control. They used the crew's voice recording, the timings, a video taken on film and images taken from lunar orbit by the LROC over the last 10 years.
