“We did it”: Today’s Doodle for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing“We did it”: Today’s Doodle for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing

GoogleBlog - 2 hours 36 min ago

Fifty years ago on July 20, 1969, astronauts from NASA’s Apollo 11 mission stepped foot on the moon. Today, you can relive the Apollo 11 journey from blast-off to re-entry in an epic video Doodle narrated by former astronaut and Apollo 11 command module pilot Michael Collins. 

Collins was one of three astronauts on the mission, along with Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. While Armstrong and Aldrin “frolicked” on the moon’s surface (Collins’ words, not ours!), he was the one who stayed behind in the command module, which would eventually bring all three astronauts back home to Earth. In the Doodle, you can hear him describe their “adventure,” beginning when a Saturn V rocket blasted off from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center on July 16. Four days later, the lunar module, known as “the Eagle,” made its 13-minute journey to the “Sea of Tranquility” on the moon’s surface. And the rest, as they say, was history.

To create today’s Doodle, the team worked closely with NASA to understand the ins and outs of the mission and ensure the most accurate representation possible. In the Doodle, you can learn about the 400,000 people who worked on the Apollo project, the onboard computer, and the "barbecue roll" which was used to regulate the spacecraft’s temperature. Learn more about the process of creating the doodle in our behind-the-scenes video:

You can also see early storyboard sketches and concept art from Doodler Pedro Vergani:

The moon landing radically reshaped the way people thought about our world and what is possible. To this day, it is an inspiration for doers and dreamers around the globe—the very Earth that Collins describes in the Doodle as “the main show.” We hope today’s Doodle is a fitting tribute to this monumental human achievement. To quote Collins:

“We, you and me, the inhabitants of this wonderful Earth. We did it!"

Google Glass May Have an Afterlife As a Device To Teach Autistic Children

Slashdot.org - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 22:30
While Google stopped selling its augmented-reality glasses to customers due to privacy concerns, Google Glass lived on as something to be used by researchers and businesses. The New York Times reports of a new effort from Stanford researchers to use Google Glass to help autistic children understand emotions and engage in more direct ways with those around them. The glasses could also be used to measure changes in behavior, something that has historically been difficult to do. An anonymous Slashdot reader shares an excerpt from the report: When Esaie Prickett sat down in the living room with his mother, father and four older brothers, he was the only one wearing Google Glass. As Esaie, who was 10 at the time and is 12 now, gazed through the computerized glasses, his family made faces -- happy, sad, surprised, angry, bored -- and he tried to identify each emotion. In an instant, the glasses told him whether he was right or wrong, flashing tiny digital icons that only he could see. Esaie was 6 when he and his family learned he had autism. The technology he was using while sitting in the living room was meant to help him learn how to recognize emotions and make eye contact with those around him. The glasses would verify his choices only if he looked directly at a face. He and his family tested the technology for several weeks as part of a clinical trial run by researchers at Stanford University in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. Recently detailed in The Journal of the American Medical Association, Pediatrics, the trial fits into a growing effort to build new technologies for children on the autism spectrum, including interactive robots and computerized eyewear.
