Google Doodle January 16, 2014 - Dian Fossey's 82nd Birthday Anniversary

Image
Dian Fossey is the subject of Thursday's Google doodle celebrating the 82th birth anniversary of the American zoologist.

Google is known for its innovative doodles, and the latest one is no different. The Dian Fossey doodle has a large number of gorillas with Fossey depicted as taking notes, and a gorilla stroking her hair. The Google doodle also has a plane flying over the mountains.

Born in California in 1932, Dian Fossey undertook a virtual lifelong study of gorillas with the majority of her work being focussed in Africa, particularly in Congo and in Rwanda. Amongst her works, she is widely credited for writing the book Jamie in the Mist, which details her personal research in Rwanda. Dian Fossey's works also detail the social structure in gorillas, the lifestyle, the habitats and the behaviour of the primates. She worked on the same in Africa from 1963 till her death in 1985.

Dian Fossey began working with gorillas in Africa under the advice of anthropologist Louis Leakey. The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, an organisation dedicated to protection and conservation of gorillas, mentions that it was a love for animals that paved the way for her from being a veterinarian to eventually a zoologist.

In addition Diane Fossey's work was also aimed at ending poaching of the animals. In 1985, Dian Fossey was murdered in her apartment in Rwanda, and it believed she was killed by locals over her anti-poaching stance in the African nation.

Google Doodle March 8, 2014 - International Women's Day


Women have historically been underrepresented in almost all fields: science, school curricula, business, politics — and, sadly, doodles. In addition to our continued effort for doodle diversity and inclusion, this truly International Women’s Day doodle features a host of over a 100 inspiring women from around the world.

Google Doodle April 21, 2014 - 198th Birthday of Author Charlotte Brontë
Image
Google has created a doodle to celebrate the 198th birthday of author Charlotte Brontë.

The American internet giant has devised one of its iconic illustrations to commemorate Bronte, best known for her 1847 masterpiece of Gothic fiction, Jane Eyre.

The doodle shows the book's title character leaving remote Thornfield Hall, where she takes up a position as governess.

Born in Thornton, Yorkshire on April 21, 1816, Charlotte was the eldest of the three Bronte sisters, all of whom became writers.

Jane Eyre was her best known work, although she did have two other novels, Shirley and Villette, published during her lifetime.

Charlotte died during pregnancy in Haworth, Yorkshire, on March 1, 1855.

She was aged just 38.

Google Doodle August 4, 2014 - John Venn's 180th Birthday

Image
John Venn was a logician and philosopher best known for introducing the Venn diagram. In the diagram, circles are used to visually and logically sort groups to illustrate their relationships to each other. For example, one circle may contain things that are mammals. The other circle may contain things that have wings. The overlapping space that both circles occupy would consist of mammals that have wings.

GOOGLE have unveiled a truly out of this world Doodle to celebrate the Rosetta Mission's historic landing of the Philae probe
http://www.brunchnews.com/express-uk/ge ... le-1998697




Philae is the landing craft of the Rosetta mission, which touched down on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 12 November 2014. The scientific objectives are to determine the physical properties of the comet's surface and subsurface and their chemical, mineralogical and isotopic composition. This information will be used in tandem with the data returned by the Rosetta orbiter to characterize the comet...
