The Golden Age of science fiction is often attributed to John W. Campbell, Jr's revolution at Astounding Science in the years 1939–1942. The 1960s proved to be the last real Silver Age of the science fiction magazines. In 1970, science fiction seemed to have come to a halt. The magazines were apparently not advancing the genre in the way they had two decades before. Yet things were actually looking bright. Advances in technology and more budgets sparked a renewed interest in science fiction films. In the years after 1970, science fiction magazines had to adopt and were able to survive against all kinds of competition. Several factors changed the public attitude to science fiction and ushered in the media magazines, including science fiction films, the punk revolution, cable television, and the Internet.
