It was on this very day, January 5, 1933, construction began on the Golden Gate Bridge. Since then, the structure has endured several close calls. Take a look back on 82 years of near misses with the iconic bridge.

In 2014, Godzilla tore that thing all to pieces.


Monkeys did some redecorating to the bridge in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes."


In the 2003 movie "The Core", superheated rays from the sun pretty much melt the bridge.


In the 23rd century, Mr. Sulu and company just about crash a Klingon Bird of Prey into the bridge.


Happy birthday, Golden Gate Bridge. May you live to see the 23rd century so the finale of Star Trek IV can become a reality.
