Third Martian Google Doodle sighted

Google have completed their series of Martian related Google Doodles with this image showing the famous Martian walkers from War of The Worlds. It celebrates H.G. Wells’ birthday today (21st September).

The official Google Blog says: “Inspiration for innovation in technology and design can come from lots of places; we wanted to celebrate H.G. Wells as an author who encouraged fantastical thinking about what is possible, on this planet and beyond. And maybe have some fun while we were doing it.

The invasion of the logo by alien crafts and pods makes our series complete, but you’ll have to read the book to find out how Wells’ story really ends”
