Aliens are the extraterrestrial creatures which live on the other planets beyond earth. Google Aliens is the series of doodles released by Google. Aliens are more complex organisms than humans which live on the planets like Mars.
Google Aliens 2000 Google Doodle (May 1, 2000)
It is still a confusion that exists in front of scientists and common people, whether Aliens exists or not? This question leads to some experiments and studies about extraterrestrial life or space life which is the main root of scientific fiction. The study about extraterrestrial life and organisms is known as exobiology or astrobiology. Scientists consider extraterrestrial life to be plausible, but there is no solid proof or evidence for its existence. The start of these experiments was during the middle of 20th century. In 1951 a science fiction film known as “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” released. In the film it is showed that an Alien known as Klaatu comes to the earth in order to save the earth.
Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the SETI Institute and a technical adviser on the film says that the film is based on scientific fiction and mentions the alien which is 50 light-years away from earth. Shostak says that there are Aliens which are much closer to our earth. The first doodle in the series of Google Aliens was released on May 1, 2000. Google was busy on releasing the doodles on special day such as birthday of famous people, Independence Day, any special celebrations around the world etc. It is first time Google think about the space life and released 5 consecutive doodles as a part of this. In the first doodle Google pictured an Alien coming to the earth in the spaceship. The logo of Google is same as usual.
Google Aliens 2000 – 2 – Google Doodle (May 2, 2000)
Somewhere people believe that Aliens have visited our earth. They say that the signs of their crash landings were seen on the earth. As a proof for this they presented some snap shots of flying saucers and debris from crash landings. From the Shostak concept it is hard to believe it. More than 60 years ago UFO crash occurred in the sites like Roswell and N.M. The alien at a museum is a commonly photographed attraction for tourists. The scientists used radios to detect possible extraterrestrial signal and telescopes are used for the search for potentially habitable extrasolar planets. It is hypothesized that Alien life exists in the solar system and in the whole universe. This believe gets strengthened with the vast and variety of physical laws exists in this observable universe.
According to the famous scientists Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking it is improper to say that there is no chance for life to exist beyond the earth. They give scientific background with the support of Copernican principle. So by the fiction science there is a possibility of occurrence of extraterrestrial life. In the 2nd doodle released by the Google on 2nd may, 2000 pictured the same Alien which is on the way to the earth in the previous doodle. The Alien gets out from the spaceship and it is like observing the Google logo. For Aliens the things in the earth is like very strange things. The spaceship is landed on the first ‘o’ of Google.
Google Aliens 2000 – 3 – Google Doodle (May 3, 2000)
According to mediocrity principle life may have emerged from any part of life, and there is nothing special to mention the life only in the earth. Based on the computer model study life may have formed in the protoplanetary disk of dust grains surrounding the Sun before the formation of the Earth. According to this the process of formation of life may be occurred in other stars that acquire planets. The other planet where the possibility for formation of life are planets like Venus and Mars, Saturn’s moons Titan Enceladus and Jupiter’s moon Europa. NASA’s Kepler space telescope discovered a habitable zone in Kepler-22b, an exoplanet that appears to be a star like sun in December 2011. There is an interesting observation given by the NASA scientists, that Enceladus is the upcoming most habitable spot beyond Earth in the Solar System. Various controversies are existing about the Alien life but there is no widely accepted evidence of extraterrestrial life has been found.
The 3rd consecutive doodle released by the Google about the Aliens on May 3, 2000. In the doodle there are more than one alien around the Google logo. After the arrival of the Alien there come other aliens to the earth to observe the strange new world. They are in the sense that they discovered something new and special. I guess it is ‘Google’ itself.
Google Aliens 2000 – 4 – Google Doodle (May 4, 2000)
It is estimated that there are there are about 1 trillion planets in the Milky Way alone. And there is a chance for the fact that some of them are undergone the same changes that earth undergone. We call it as a sentient life. This is only a probabilistic thing and if we are the only intelligent ones in the universe then it is a miracle. In 2011 Whitehouse released a response to two petitions asking the U.S. government about the visiting of Aliens in the earth. In their replay they conclude that there is no concrete evidence for the existence of life beyond the earth. No human eyewitness has reported about any presence of Alien in any part of the earth. The claims of presence of unidentified flying objects known as Aliens are rejected by most of the scientists.
The 4th doodle about the Alien was released on 4th May, 2000. In this doodle the return journey of Aliens is shown. The Upside Down logo of Google is pictured there. I think after seeing the Google Aliens have made a decision to take the Google to their own planet. That’s why they carrying Google along with the spaceship. They felt that it is interesting to take something special and new from the earth to their own planet.
Google Aliens 2000 – 5 – Google Doodle (May 5, 2000)
The information that obtained shows that there is no public eyewitness exists as to make some realization about the space life. Most UFO sightings just explain the facts such as either sighting of Earth-based aircraft or known astronomical objects, or as hoaxes. There may be possibility of Aliens lives in other planets, but the possibility of contacting with them is really far away from our concepts. But if we think in another way, we can imagine these Aliens and it is possible by the new generation science fiction films. These films take us to the imaginary world of human’s interaction with intelligent Aliens.
The last Google doodle about Aliens was released on 5th May, 2000. It is an imaginary concept. In this doodle the Aliens take Google to their planet. This concept is clear when we see the moon and earth as distant objects from that planet.
