Yes, we've had these before, but it seems to me we need a one-stop thread for them all, as Google banners get more creative and interactive. Maybe a mod might want to merge some of the older interactive Google banner threads into this one for ease of reference

Today's banner, in honor of famed luthier Les Paul is a playable and recordable guitar.
You know the URL. I hope someone posts a permalink if/when they archive it

That is seriously cool.  Lots of people are saying its the coolest one ever, but I can't really agree. I thought the playable pacman was cooler (may be generational...)

I showed someone the guitar today, I played it for them...they were unimpressed "why?" they asked, "because it's there and I can" I replied.

She said she looked at it and thought "Best doodle ever?  Well, the squashes are nice, but ... EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!"  :love:

So, google makes many different doodles, and only shows them in the parts of the world where they are relevant.  But they all end up on the doodle archive page, with a note saying where in the world they were made for.

Anyway, today's first day of spring is already on the archive, but so is the corresponding southern hemisphere's first day of fall.  And it's even funnier than ours!!! :hehe:  :lol:

I'm glad I saw this one. I didn't know who Hertha Marks Ayrton was, and that makes me sad, and knowing how the Royal Society treated her, and all women, makes me mad, but I'm happy now that I know who she was and what she accomplished.   :happy:

Here is an edited excerpt of her obituary from the Guardian https://www.theguard...ry-1923-archive:

Quote

We regret to announce that Mrs. Hertha Ayrton, widow of Professor W. E. Ayrton, and herself a scientist of great distinction, died at North Lancing, Sussex, on Sunday last.
Mrs. Ayrton’s name is bound up in the public mind chiefly with her researches in connection with the electric arc. Her great powers of observation and remarkable inventive faculty were turned in this direction in 1893. Her husband, Professor Ayrton, had been approached by the Board of Trade on behalf of the Admiralty with a request that he should investigate the question of “roaring” searchlights, which was being examined concurrently by the Admiralty’s own experts.
Professor Ayrton had begun the investigation but ill-health prevented him from pursuing the intricate questions involved, and at a very early stage he handed the subject over to his wife. He then ceased to work at it himself, chiefly because he knew that if he continued to take any part in it the credit would fall mainly to himself.
Another problem of physics to which Mrs. Ayrton gave close and continuous attention was the formation of sand-ripples on the seashore. She read papers on both these matters before the British Association at different times, and read a paper on the searchlight before the Royal Society. There is no doubt that she would have received the distinction of a Fellowship of the Royal Society but for the counsel’s ruling that no woman was eligible; she was actually nominated in 1902.
For her scientific work she did receive the Hughes Medal of the Society, and was the first woman to receive the honour. Indeed, she was the only one to receive it if we except Mme. Curie, to whom it was only awarded jointly with Professor Curie. She was the only woman member of the Institute of Electrical Engineers.
Mrs Ayrton took a keen interest in the professional and political enfranchisement of women. It was her opinion that women were naturally inventive and original, and that these qualities, joined to the capacity for patient work that is universally allowed to be theirs, especially fitted them for scientific work. Her house was a centre for suffragist endeavour, and it was there that Mrs. Pankhurst was taken to be nursed back to health when she was released from Holloway early in 1913.

She was an extraordinary woman, and it sounds like she married a good guy.  :happy:
