Today marks the 50th Sputnik anniversary and Google is always quick to have an appropriate logo at hand to celebrate the event.
On October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched the world's first artificial satellite, which as you may have guessed, was Sputnik I. And with that initial "victory" in conquering space, the space race between the US and Soviet Union was born. For more about Sputnik, head over to NASA.
Now that I've got Sputnik covered, back to the Google logo. I'm just not feeling the 'g'. Sputnik looks like what it's supposed to be (here's a photo of Sputnik from NASA), but what about Google? It sure looks like "Gooole" now.
