Google honors Jules Verne’s 183rd birthday

Google Doodle 2/8/2011 - Jules Verne

Google Doodle 2/8/2011 - Jules Verne 2

Here are two different screen shots of today’s Google Doodle, an interactive journey to the depths of the ocean as viewed through a series of brass portholes (naturally spelling out the word “Google”). When you mouse over the little joy stick, you can spy a cornucopia of sea life, including: flying fish, jellyfish, a Megamouth shark, a trio of nautiluses, and the tentacles of an enormous cephalopod.

Joyeux Anniversaire Jules!
