Google has come clean on what all these flying saucers Google Doodles were about. It is to honor the 143rd birthday of H.G. Wells, the Father of Science Fiction, who’s birthday is today.
We actually expected this logo to show up today. Many of the logos, Google tweets and evidence or hints, Google dropped, kind of led to this. This is the first time Google actually put together a few logos to honor a single person’s birthday. Clearly, Google was having fun with this.
