I guess everyone by now knows that Google tends to change the graphic on their search engine on special holidays, or when celebrating certain events, such as the Olympics this past August, or the celebration of Albert Einstein’s birthday.

So it was with pleasure that I found this while visiting the Google search engine this afternoon.

You can bet your elections that the science geeks around the world are  weak in the knees with excitement.

 

 

Here is a video clip  from The Washington Post that will bring you up to speed.
