In 1950, ‘I, Robot‘, a collection of short stories exploring robotics, morality and humanity written by Isaac Asimov, was published. The 1942 story ‘Runaround’ laid out the influential Three Laws of Robotics.

In 2000, The Smashing Pumpkins saw their first major breakup, followed by a farewell show at The Metro in Chicago where they began 12 years earlier.
