For the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Google has created an animated doodle that tells the story of the Apollo 11 mission
Everyone knows the name of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, the first two men to walk on the moon. But no one remembers the name of the third astronaut who was part of the Apollo 11 mission and who spent all his time on the command module: Michael Collins. And Michael Collins is the narrator of the doodle that Google has created to celebrate 50 years since the landing on the moon.
On the occasion of important events, the company of Big G inserts in the home of the search engine an animated image in place of its logo. This time the doodle (this is the name of the animated content) is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. The developers of Big G have created a video lasting four minutes in which Michael Collins recounts all the major phases of the Apollo 11 mission: from departure on July 16, 1969 to landing on the moon on July 20, 1969, until the return to Earth on July 24, 1969. A historic event that changed human history forever.
To whom is dedicated the doodle of July 19, 2019
Who connects to the Google home page finds a surprise: instead of the classic logo of Big G there is an animated video dedicated to the 50 years since the landing on the moon. Just press the "Play" icon on the doodle and a video of more than four minutes will appear on the screen, recounting the highlights of the Apollo 11 mission.
In addition to the most important moments, some little known facts are also told, such as the fact that to keep the temperature of Apollo 11 under control, the astronauts were forced to perform a maneuver called "rotisserie" in which they turned sideways on themselves, like a chicken on a spit. Although only two people walked on the Moon for the first time, the Apollo 11 mission involved more than 400,000 people from Nasa - a huge project, but one that meant a lot to mankind. As Neil Armstrong said when he put the first foot on the moon: "A small step for man, a big step for mankind".
The 50th anniversary of the moon landing will be July 20, 2019 and around the world there will be many events to celebrate the event: Google did not want to be outdone and with its doodle developed for smartphones (the format is vertical) does it in the best way.
