    Edward Lear's 200th Birthday

    Edward Lear was an English artist, illustrator, musician, author and poet, now known mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry and prose and especially his limericks, a form he popularised. His principal areas of work as an artist were threefold: as a draughtsman employed to illustrate birds and animals; making coloured drawings during his journeys, which he reworked later, sometimes as plates for his travel books; and as a [minor] illustrator of Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poems. As an author, he is known principally for his popular nonsense collections of poems, songs, short stories, botanical drawings, recipes and alphabets. He also composed and published twelve musical settings of Tennyson's poetry in poem.

    Yuri Kondratyuk's 115th Birthday

    Yuri Kondratyuk was a self-educated mechanic who, 50 years before lunar flights, foresaw ways of reaching the moon, calculating the best means of achieving a lunar landing. His theory of the gravitational slingshot trajectory to accelerate a spacecraft, known today as the "Kondratyuk Route", was eventually adopted by the engineers of the Apollo program for American lunar expeditions.

    His personal story is also fascinating, though ultimately heartbreaking. Yuri's developing theories on space travel were happening during a time when such pursuits were considered "absurd", and consequently were prohibited by the ruling government of his time. Because of this, his work – and much of his life – was shrouded in secrecy. Even his real name was a secret [it was Aleksandr Gnatovich Shargei]. Fortunately, history has been much kinder to his legacy, and today he is considered an early pioneer of space exploration. For his doodle, we felt that while it is not quite the real thing, it was only right to show an aspirational Kondratyuk gazing about – and amongst – the stars.

Jaakko's Name Day is currently at a time when air cooling is starting to show up in long-term statistics. After that we move on to the autumn summer. However, the decline in surface water temperatures will not begin until early August.

    With the addition of a video game console in our home, my brothers and I used to spend as many hours playing sports in front of the tv as we did outside.

    The good ol' fashion button mashin' of my youth was no small part of the inspiration for the 2012 Summer Games interactive doodles. [In fact, collaborator Marcin Wichary even wired up these doodles with the then newly released Gamepad API, allowing users to mash actual buttons.]

    To my great joy, over onebillion games were played on the Google homepages in this four-day interactive doodle run. [Besides this basketball game, there're doodles for hurdles, slalom canoe, and soccer/football.] With each game presenting an opportunity to share your high score, I'm sure quite a few brothers, sisters, friends, etc. were able to play, compete, and grow closer with thesehttp://www.google.com/doodles/basketball-2012

    OK, I admit it, I am a die-hard Trekkie. I grew up watching endless reruns of Star Trek, my imagination completely immersed in Gene Roddenberry’s brilliant creation.

    Today’s Star Trek doodle is, and Mr. Spock said it best, “Fascinating.” Built using modern web technologies, this beautiful, interactive, multi-scene doodle takes all of us... where no one has gone before. Every scene has hidden surprises you absolutely have to discover for yourself, especially the fate of the Redshirt. A team of outstanding designers and engineers, and numerous Star Trek fans at Google, got really creative with this one.

    Working on search at Google has brought me ever so close to realizing my childhood dream of turning science fiction into reality; and Star Trek has played a special role in my journey. Yes! The destiny of search is to become the Star Trek computer, a perfect assistant by my side whenever I need it.

    I hope you enjoy today’s magical doodle, and to all my fellow Trekkies, I say... live long and prosper.

    Howard Florey's 114th Birthday

    OMHoward Walter Florey, Baron Florey of Adelaide and Marston was an Australian pharmacologist and pathologist who shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1945 with Sir Ernst Chain and Sir Alexander Fleming for his role in the development of penicillin.

    Although Fleming received most of the credit for the discovery of penicillin, it was Florey who carried out the first ever clinical trials of penicillin in 1941 at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford on the first patient, a police constable from Oxford. The patient started to recover, but subsequently died because Florey was unable, at that time, to make enough penicillin. It was Florey and Chain who actually made a useful and effective drug out of penicillin, after the task had been abandoned as too difficult.

    Florey's discoveries, along with the discoveries of Fleming and Ernst Chain, are estimated to have saved over 200 million lives, and he is consequently regarded by the Australian scientific and medical community as one of its greatest figures. Sir Robert Menzies, Australia's longest-serving Prime Minister, said, "In terms of world well-being, Florey was the most important man ever born in Australia."

    There are a few ways to turn heads on a football field. Some get looks because they throw a great deep ball, some have soft hands; some can run the 40-yard dash under 4.5 seconds. Another way is to dump a bucket of ice cold water on your coach’s head. Maybe they’ll cut the kid some slack--it is little g’s birthday, after all.

    Yps Magazine's 40th anniversary

    Forty years ago today, Yps Magazine published its first comic. Or, perhaps more memorably, it was on this day forty years ago that some Germans opened Yps Magazine’s first “gimmick”. The comic itself was replete with tales of mystery, peril, and adventure, but many would agree that the most irresistible surprise was the toy that came with each new edition. They ranged from the simple [spinning tops] to the sophisticated [kits to build functioning radios], and often the slightly bizarre: one common and beloved gimmick was a package of Brine Shrimp eggs that young readers were encouraged to hatch and grow themselves. Today’s Doodle hearkens back to the simpler days of childhood, when the month’s most nagging uncertainty was the prize awaiting young readers beneath Yps Magazine’s plastic cover.
