Google recognizes the role of Galileo in modern science as indicated in its display logo today. This day Aug 25 1609, 400 years ago, Galileo opened a new universe to a small community of Venetians challenging conventional views.
The world has never been the same since. We pay our tributes to this astronomer who changed the way we see the world. Though it’s been a long journey from Galileo’s Telescope to the Hubble…pioneers will always be remembered. Thank you Google for this wonderful logo.
