Google Doodle celebrates Japanese-American artist Ruth Asawa

"'My curiosity was aroused by the idea of giving structural form to the images in my drawings,' she said. 'These forms come from observing plants, the spiral shell of a snail, seeing light through insect wings, watching spiders repair their webs in the early morning, and seeing the sun through the droplets of water suspended from the tips of pine needles while watering my garden.'"

She overcame World War II discrimination to become a renowned sculptor and advocate for art's transformative power.

Happy Birthday, Samuel F. B. Morse!

Morse developed “lightning wires” and “Morse code,” an electronic alphabet that could carry messages. The patent was applied for in 1840. By 1861, the two coasts of the United States were linked by telegraph.

Aretha Franklin awarded 2019 Pulitzer Prize for contributions to music, culture

"Franklin's inclusion into the exclusive club re-confirms the impact her music – and voice – had and continues to have on the world. She became a cultural icon and genius of American song, considered by many to be the greatest popular vocalist of her time. Her voice transcended age, category and her own life."

The Queen of Soul was awarded a 2019 Pulitzer Prize for her 'indelible contributions' to American music and culture

'My mind's eye is blind' - ex-Pixar chief

Ed Catmull: "People had conflated visualisation with creativity and imagination and one of the messages is, 'they're not the same thing'.

"The other one I think that people might have assumed, but if you think about it you can see why it's false assumption, is you would think if a person could visualise, they're more likely to be able to draw.

"If you open your eyes and you take out a pencil and pad, how many people can draw what they see? The answer is a very small number, so if you can't draw what is in front of you then why would we expect that you would be able to draw what you visualise?"

Ed Catmull has aphantasia, as do some of the world's best animators at Pixar.

100th Anniversary of Bauhaus

"Both a school for the arts and a school of thought, the Bauhaus was founded by architect Walter Gropius exactly 100 years ago in Weimar, Germany, gathering many of Europe's most brilliant artists and designers with the aim of training a new generation of creatives to reinvent the world. Today's animated Doodle celebrates the legacy of this institution and the worldwide movement it began, which transformed the arts by applying the principle 'form follows function.'"

That image of a black hole you saw everywhere today? Thank this grad student for making it possible

"Three years ago, Bouman led the creation of an algorithm that eventually helped capture this first-of-its-kind image: a supermassive black hole and its shadow at the center of a galaxy known as M87. She was then a graduate student in computer science and artificial intelligence at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology."

The effort wouldn't have succeeded without Katie Bouman, who developed a crucial algorithm and helped devise imaging methods.

"'We have seen what we thought was unseeable. We have seen and taken a picture of a black hole,' Sheperd Doeleman, EHT Director and astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass., said April 10 in Washington, D.C., at one of seven concurrent news conferences."

Astronomers used a network of telescopes around the world to take a picture of the supermassive black hole in the galaxy M87.

Google Doodle celebrates pioneering physicist Hedwig Kohn

"Trailblazing physicist Hedwig Kohn smashed STEM stereotypes and became one of only three women to reach a university teaching position in Germany prior to the second World War. On Friday, the Google Doodle celebrates what would have been her 132nd birthday.

"Kohn was born in 1887 and obtained her doctorate in 1913 at the age of 20 after training under notable atomic physicists Otto Lummer and Rudolf Ladenburg. In 1930, she was given 'Habilitation' at the university -- the term used to describe academics who were able to teach at university."

The courageous physicist, who fled Germany during World War II, helped develop techniques to identify and understand atoms.

Google Doodle celebrates mathematician Olga Ladyzhenskaya

"After earning her Ph.D., Ladyzhenskaya went on to lead the Laboratory of Mathematical Physics at the Steklov Mathematical Institute in Moscow and to write more than 250 papers.

"She's best known for her work on fluid dynamics of the Navier–Stokes equations -- which describe the motion of viscous substances -- and partial differential equations."

The prolific Russian thinker would've been 97 on Thursday.

R.I.P., Opportunity Rover: the Hardest-Working Robot in the Solar System

"So yes, Opportunity is technically dead. But perhaps it's more accurate to say it's bravely completed its mission—and then some. It was only expected to scoot about the martian surface for three months, yet here we are 15 years later. It was designed to travel just 1,100 yards, yet ended up roving a stunning 28 miles."

NASA announced that, after 15 years and 5,000 charge cycles, the Mars rover Opportunity is officially dead. Here’s what killed the tenacious little robot.

The Books That Mattered Most to David Bowie, Bibliophile

"David Bowie once recounted a story from the filming of 'The Man Who Fell to Earth' in 1975. Relocating from Los Angeles to New Mexico for the shoot, he brought hundreds upon hundreds of books with him, a 'traveling library' that he ported in cases large enough to hold an amplifier. His director, Nicolas Roeg, seeing Bowie sifting through piles of books, told him that 'your great problem, David, is that you don't read enough.' Bowie said he didn't realize for months that Roeg was joking. Instead he berated himself, asking 'What else should I read?'"

Google Doodle Celebrates the Chemist Who Accidentally 'Discovered' Caffeine

"Runge earned his doctorate from the University of Berlin, and went on to teach at the University of Breslau until 1831, when he left academia to take a position at a chemical company. During this time, he invented the first coal tar dye and a related process for dyeing clothes. He was also one of the first scientists to isolate quinine (a drug used to treat malaria), and he even devised a method for extracting sugar from beet juice. On top of that, he also invented paper chromatography, a method for separating chemicals that is widely used in teaching labs."

Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge first "discovered" caffeine when he was asked to analyze coffee beans.

Dynamic Underwater Photos Look Like Dramatic Baroque Paintings

"Featuring swirls of intertwined figures and flowing drapery, each striking photograph looks like a 17th-century painting come to life. Specifically, 'Muses' borrows traits from Baroque masters, including Caravaggio's contrasts between light and shadow, Gentileschi's focus on movement, and Rubens' rich color palette. Unlike the work of these artists, however, Rogers' scenes don't take place in opulent interiors or mythological landscapes. Instead, they're set entirely underwater."

Each striking photo looks like a 17th-century painting come to life.

“All I’m saying is simply this, that all life is interrelated, that somehow we’re caught in an inescapable network of mutuality tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason, I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”

—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Beloved Poet Mary Oliver, Who Believed Poetry 'Mustn't Be Fancy,' Dies At 83

“When it’s over, I want to say all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.”

RIP

Oliver wasn't always appreciated by critics, but she was still one of the country's most popular poets. In 2012, she told NPR, "Poetry, to be understood, must be clear."

Google Doodle celebrates Anglo-Indian author Sake Dean Mahomed

"Mahomed is credited with introducing Indian cuisine and Indian therapeutic massages known as shampoo baths to Europe in the early 19th century. But it's for his writings that Google honored him with a Doodle on Tuesday. It was on this date in 1794 that Mahomed became the first Indian author to write and publish a book in English."

He was the first Indian author to publish a book in English, as well as owner of the first Indian restaurant in Britain.

25 Mind-Twisting Optical Illusion Paintings By Rob Gonsalves

"Most of his stunning paintings have an unclear boundary between the multiple stories they tell, which forces the viewer to jump back and forth between them – like an optical illusion that changes every time you look at it."

The beautiful and mind-bending illusions in Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves' paintings have a fun way of twisting your perception and causing you to question what in his paintings, if anything, is real. Most have an unclear boundary between the multiple stories they tell, which forces the viewer to...

"Amid the muffled churn of the washers and the humming of dryers, anywhere between a handful to more than a dozen children hear stories, sing songs and play games designed to help their brains develop. The event also aims to tacitly instruct parents on how to repeat the experience for their kids, working to reverse poor literacy rates in underserved communities."

John James Audubon's Birds of America

"John James Audubon's Birds of America is a portal into the natural world. Printed between 1827 and 1838, it contains 435 life-size watercolors of North American birds (Havell edition), all reproduced from hand-engraved plates, and is considered to be the archetype of wildlife illustration. Nearly 200 years later, the Audubon prints are coming to life once again, thanks to our vibrant digital library.
