Don’t Panic! Google Doodle Honors Author Douglas Adams

Today’s Google’s doodle is a tribute to Douglas Adams, the late author of the acclaimed novel, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

Google’s doodle includes references to Adams’ work: a towel, which according to Adams’ book, is an essential item for space travel, a cup of tea, a staple of his oeuvre, and when users click the door in the doodle, Marvin, the beloved “paranoid android,” from “Hitchhiker’s Guide” appears. 

Clicking on the tablet-like item on the spacecraft dash, which reads ‘Don’t Panic,” a phrase written on the cover of “Hitchhiker’s Guide,” will also reveal some fun Easter eggs. A Babel fish, Adams’ fictional animal that feeds on brain wave energy and can translate any language, and a drawing of earth and a message reading “mostly harmless” — the title of the fifth installment in Adams’ “trilogy,” appear with several clicks.
