Since the beginning of September, three mysterious designs have graced Google logos. While Google is usually good at giving clear indication as to why any artistic logo has been chosen, this time they kept the mystery alive. Until this week.
The three logos have been an homage to the late science fiction writer H.G. Wells, who would have been 143 today if scientists had only unlocked immortality earlier. Never fear, there's always the possibility that in the future when immortality and time travel are discovered, they can return and grant Wells many more years of writing.
In the meantime, we can only hope that his spirit lives on in the multiverse (or the afterlife, depending on what you believe, or both if you're truly imaginative), while his work lives on in limited preview at Google Books.
