Google Made Doodle to Celebrate Very First Image of Black Hole Revealed

  • 11-April-2019

Following the announcement and release of the first photograph of a black hole Google responded rapidly and made a doodle to honor the earth shattering science news on Wednesday. By the evening a whole animated doodle was added to the search engine's homepage to celebrate.

The news was reported Wednesday morning in a live conference and the photograph of the cosmic force immediately made snappy adjusts via social media and on news sites. The picture was taken and after that mutual by the Event Horizon Telescope venture. The researchers who were working to capture the picture trained telescopes everywhere throughout the globe to make a black hole that it provided new information.

Wednesday's doodle included the letters of "Google" on the homepage as usual, surprisingly, yet an animated version of the black hole photo is highlighted amidst the majority of the letters. The black hole at that point maneuvers the letters into it making them disappear from the page. When the majority of the letters are sucked into the black hole, everything leaves the screen leaving a dark blue sky in its place before the Google logo returns and the animation starts over again.

The animated doodle was made by a doodler at Google named Nate Swinehart. He came up the idea while he was en way to work Wednesday morning following the announcement and the arrival of the photograph, as indicated by Google.

Swinehart is the equivalent doodler who made other "live" doodles for Google. Those incorporate the doodles about the seven exoplanets found in 2017 and the doodle about proof of water being found on Mars in 2015.

He sketched the underlying thought for the doodle while he was in the car featuring descriptions of the letters moving in the doodle. “These achievements are incredible, inspiring and often mind-boggling…It’s a huge opportunity as an artist to take the homepage space and make something small and charming that piques people's interest in the discovery,” said Swinehart.
