Douglas Adams Google Doodle

If you’re anything like us, you’ve read Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series multiple times. You know that the answer to life, the universe and everything is 42 and why a towel is the most important object you can own. And you cracked a smile at today’s Google doodle.

The doodle is a celebration of what would have been Adams’ 61st birthday. Set on a spaceship (presumably the Heart of Gold), it features some of the most important objects from the Hitchhiker’s canon, including a towel, a cup of tea and, of course, the eponymous guide.

Click on the guide and you’ll be shown entries on the Babel Fish and the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster among other things.

Scroll over to the elevator meanwhile and you’ll see Marvin, the paranoid Android. So prepare to geek out to your heart’s content.
