Today in Geek History

Yo. Today is April 21st and today in Geek History...

1972 Apollo 16 successfully lands on the moon. They touch down in the Descartes Highlands.

1976 Wonder Woman with Lynda Carter, season 1 premiers with the episode "Wonder Woman Meets The Baroness Paula Von Gunther." Holy cow.

1978 Alessandro Juliani of Battlestar Galactica is born in Canada. He plays Felix Gaeta.

1986 Geraldo Rivera opened a vault in Chicago that belonged to Al Capone. It was empty.

1989 Nintendo releases the GameBoy handheld gaming system in Japan. Do you remember those systems? I do.

1997 Gene Roddenberry's ashes are shot into space. He was aboard the Pegasus XL rocket. How cool is that??
