Ted Kaczynski will likely spend the rest of his life at ADX Florence, a supermax prison in Florence, Colorado, which is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and known as the “Alcatraz of the Rockies.”

His cell is 12-by-7 feet, as compared to his 10-by-12-foot cabin south Lincoln. But the cell has amenities the Unabomber’s cabin did not, such as running water and electricity. Inmates spend 22 or more hours a day alone in a cell with no meaningful human contact, a report states.
