50th Sputnik Anniversary Google Logo

50th Sputnik Anniversary Google Logo

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 .

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 ), but what about Google? It sure looks like "Gooole" now.

 

5 people had something to say! Why don't you join in? The more the merrier!

Sputnik started the race to space in which United Sates won. However, let's not forget that sputnik was the first artificial satellite to be put in space.
