Why a Google Doodle is Marking the Worlds Birthday?

If you are unfamiliar with the Son Doong Cave‚ it is a colossal cavern that is located in central Vietnam's Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. It was accidentally discovered by a local farmer in 1990 and remained virtually untouched until the British Cave Research Association conducted the first official survey of the cave in 2008.

Son Doong Cave

Why a Google Doodle is marking the planet's birthday? The colossal cave is one of the world's newly discovered natural wonders. It is located in central Vietnam near the UNESCO world heritage site of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. A British expedition has found an underwater tunnel connecting the cave to another one. It is over one billion cubic feet in volume. It is located in central Quang Binh Province‚ 500km south of Hanoi. The cave is difficult to access and tours are expensive. Some people have taken offense to the fact that Google did not create a doodle for a religious holiday. In fact‚ the last time a Google Doodle was posted on its homepage was on Easter day‚ back in 2000. Initially‚ the Doodles were obscure jokes aimed at Google users. Some criticized the lack of Christmas doodles‚ citing that it was not a Christian celebration. Critics have criticized the diversity of the doodles‚ particularly those featuring men. A study by women's organization SPARK found that in the four-year period from 2010 to 2013‚ only 77 of the 445 doodles depicted women. But since then‚ the company has diversified its representation in their doodles‚ expanding the range of representation for women and people of color. As of this year‚ women received greater representation in the doodles than ever before. Throughout the years‚ the company has added new doodles to commemorate different occasions. A number of other notable events‚ holidays‚ and anniversaries have been commemorated with Google doodles. Some of the most popular searches of the world were celebrated with doodles. The doodles have evolved from clip art in 1998 to illustrations and even animated ones. Some have even won an Emmy Award. Whether it is a national holiday or the birth of a famous artist‚ the Doodle is a celebration of his or her legacy. A Google doodle celebrates this tradition and honors the life and work of the 104-year-old artist. A Google Doodle is not only a beautiful symbol of the Internet but also a powerful and unique way to honor a nation. Sir Tim Berners-Lee‚ two Stanford Ph.D. students‚ launched the world wide web 20 years ago with a goal to make information accessible to everyone. Now‚ the search engine works in 190 countries and over 150 languages‚ and the company is committed to building products that are accessible to everyone. This video Doodle explores popular searches from the past two decades. It is one of the many ways Google is celebrating this milestone. The history of diabetes is an important topic‚ but finding a Doodle that is fitting for the occasion is challenging. In the past‚ the search giant has stayed away from supporting specific causes. However‚ Google has been increasingly getting into the causes that deserve its support. And diabetes was no exception. The Doodle‚ created by Nightscout in a Facebook group dedicated to CGM in the Cloud‚ didn't look so good. In fact‚ it didn't look very good four years ago. The history of the Google doodle dates back to 1998‚ when the search giant's co-founders were away at Burning Man. Since then‚ some of art history's most famous figures have graced the company's home page. Johannes Vermeer will be featured on the homepage on November 12‚ 2021. So‚ why is a Google Doodle marking the worlds greatest achievement?

Its geological formations

The largest cave in the world is honored with a Google Doodle‚ marking the occasion with a beautiful illustration of its interior and a brave explorer. The cave's interior is so vast that it can accommodate a 40-story building and is home to geological formations that defy all descriptions. A Google Doodle honoring the cave is featured on the search engine's homepage in Vietnam and Mexico‚ and is also featured on the Vietnamese‚ American‚ and European countries' home pages. In 2009‚ a Vietnamese peasant named Hawkhan found the cave's entrance‚ which he named Sn Doong. He measured the cave's length and volume‚ and discovered it had the capacity to house a Boeing 747. The cave is home to the world's largest stalagmites‚ which can reach 70 metres in height. Another amazing feature of the cave is its geological formations‚ including cave pearls the size of baseballs. The British Cave Research Association first mapped Son Doong Cave in 2000‚ and discovered that it contains the tallest stalactite. In addition to being home to the world's tallest stalactite‚ the cave has two distinct ecosystems - one forest‚ one subtropical‚ and an underground jungle. It has even been found to be connected to another cave by an underwater tunnel. The colossal cave in central Vietnam is marked with a Google Doodle to honor its incredible geological formations. A UNESCO world heritage site‚ it is believed to be the largest cave in the world‚ with a cross-section of 3.8 million square meters. The cave's formations are so spectacular that a Google Doodle honoring it will be featured on the homepage today. The newest Doodle honors the world's largest natural cave‚ the Son Doong Cave. Originally formed a few million years ago‚ the cave remained immaculate until the 2008 opening. The cave is situated in the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in the central province of Quang Binh‚ Vietnam. The cave is famous for its rare species and is an essential destination on any adventurer's travel bucket list. The cave was featured on the Google Doodle on Vietnam's National Day in celebration of the country's unique culture. Google has added the cave to its Wonders of Vietnam list‚ which will be launched in early 2021. Tours to the cave can cost up to 70 million VND and take between one and two hours. The cave is home to a diverse range of courageous activities‚ including swimming‚ native cuisine‚ and a fast-flowing underground stream. The Son Doong cave‚ also known as Hang Son Doong in Vietnamese‚ has geological formations and has been featured in MVs and movies. In 2014‚ the New York Times named the cave eighth on its list of 52 must-visit destinations. In the Telegraph's list of ten top attractions in the world‚ it ranked third. The cave is located in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park‚ a UNESCO world heritage site. The cave is believed to be between two and five million years old. It was discovered by a local farmer‚ Ho Khanh‚ in 1990‚ and remained untouched until he was recently recognized by the British Speleological Research Society. The cave has an interior volume of 38.5 million cubic metres. It was proclaimed the largest cave in the world by the Guinness World Records in 2013.
