Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. At 3:23p April 25th, 1986 (Pacific) or 1:23a April 26th, 1986 (Chernobyl), Chernobyl's number four reactor had a melt down. The reactor went out of control creating explosions and a fireball which blew off the reactor's heavy steel and concrete lid, spewing radioactive clouds over the former USSR (now Ukraine) and much of Europe for ten days. The Chernobyl accident killed more than 30 people instantly, and as a result of the high radiation levels in the surrounding 32 kilometer radius, 135,000 people had to be evacuated. There is no doubt that Chernobyl is the worlds worst nuclear disaster.

The 1999 TV-Series Futurama which lasted up to August 2003 may have it's comeback. With high ratings on Cartoon Network in the United States, and high DVD sales in the United States, Futurama might be revived just like Family Guy was in May 2005. According to a post made by Billy West on his message board, Futurama is going to be renewed for another season with 26 episodes. No word as who will rejoin the cast, or whether it'll be two seasons which would consist of 13 episodes. Please keep in mind that all this information is still unofficial.
