Google’s O Celebrates Buckyball
Google is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Buckyball as an interactive Google Doodle.
Users are treated to a new visual treat by Google.com; their new doodle involves the second “o” becoming a small moving ball before turning into a buckyball when you move your mouse over it. Users can then spin the newly formed molecule to their hearts content. Further clicking on the logo will take you to a search for “buckyball”.
The New doodle is googole’s way of celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Buckyball – the discovery of Buckminster-Fullerene molecules – as an interactive Google Doodle on Saturday. “Buckyball”, or fullerene, is any molecules composed entirely of carbon, in the form of a hollow sphere, ellipsoid, or tube. Its official name is “Buckminsterfullerene” because its structure resembles that of the geodesic domes designed by the late American engineer Buckminster Fuller
