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.
