It commemorates Hans Christian Ãrsted, who discovered the relationship between electricity and magenetism. Re-enact Ãrsted's experiment here.
But what about that other Hans Christian, Hans Christian Andersen? Here's what the Guardian had to say: "while there's nothing wrong with fairy stories, they haven't contributed much to the development of electric motors."
It looks like a homage to bombings. How/where do you find out what the google doodles reference?
Honestly, the first thought I had was "why did Google turn their logo into a pipe bomb?" I think maybe they should have market tested this one first.
"while there's nothing wrong with fairy stories, they haven't contributed much to the development of electric motors."
I SO want to stick 'discuss' on the end of that and use it as an essay question. XD
Actually I want to write an essay answer to that... I'm definately tempted.
Do it! :)
It's not so much an essay as a brief discussion, but it definately has essay-style potential. And it was fun :D
