Google does NOT specify what anniversary we are celebrating.
Her birthday is not known.
But this is still good.

I could be wrong, but this appears to be the first in this ‘abolitionist’ genre.

Did a search on ‘Frederick Douglass’. Nothing so far.

Here is a list of the counties where this Google Doodle was shown.

Note, no U.S. or Canada
though they showed it in Tunisia, UAE, Jordan & Oman!
“‘Wilco’, ‘Tango’  ‘Fox'” as they say on Fox TV.

Yes, given that Google is omniscient and omnipresent (and keeps track of the color of your underwear, if you wear any), they must know that most Americans probably don’t know or appreciate who the TOWERING Johannes Kepler was.

But, I am sure we must do better than Qatar or Saudi Arabia.

I am not amused. Neither should YOU.

Johannes Kepler is one of the GREATEST scientists of all times. I think the world of him.

I have, to my joy, written quite a bit about Johannes in my Dwarf Planets, 4 Vesta and Comet ISON books. I always felt privileged JUST to write about him.

He is, to me, the indubitable, uncontested FATHER of modern astronomy.

I am sure quite a few Americans know of me. Percentage wise I am 100% sure that more Americans have heard of Kepler than the little folks in Ireland.

Without Kepler (though yes, somebody would have come along eventually) we would NOT have the sacrosanct 3 Laws of Planetary (and Cometary) Motion. Without Kepler we would still be in the dark ages when it came to the Solar System.

Here is just a fragment of what I wrote about him in 4 Vesta.

I could be wrong, but I can’t get any sound from this. I thought that clicking the speakers …
Plus, other than the dancing, can’t get it to do anything else.
Come on Google. YOU can do better.
I want a singing and dancing one TOMORROW.
That is an ORDER. OK?
