The curious animation in the Google search engine when typing “meteorite”

To provide a more realistic experience in Google search, the technology company has incorporated an animation that appears after typing the word “meteorite” in recent days. In doing so, you can see how the phenomenon passes through the screen of computers and cell phones from the upper left to the lower right, where when it falls, the page vibrates as if it had hit a mass from outer space.

These animations are used by the doodle of Google which is used to temporarily change the design of the search engine.

The objective of this initiative, since its inception, has been to capture the attention of users, giving relevance to current issues, special dates or commemorations through unique designs, games and even educational content.

β€œIn 1998, even before the constitution of the company, the concept of doodle It arose when Google founders Larry and Sergey played with the corporate logo to RSVP to the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert. To do this, they placed a drawing of a stick figure behind the second ‘o’ of the word Google,” according to information from the Google page.

Where the results of what is being investigated provide them with a curious experience due to events that happen in the world, such as holidays, popular topics, fun facts and personalities.

In fact, if you look for the word Chicxulub”, the famous animation passes on the screen again and along with it all the information about the Chicxulub crater in Mexico that left the impact of the meteorite 66 million years ago in the Yucatan peninsula, causing a great explosion that put an end to the Cretaceous period of the era of dinosaurs.

Another curious animation is evident when searching “DART mission” in Google. In this you can see how a space object passes from one side to the other, which according to NASA was the impact of a ship with an asteroid that caused it to change its orbit on September 26, 2022. “The analysis of the data obtained in the past two weeks by NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) research team shows that the spacecraft’s kinetic impact against its target asteroid, Dimorphos, successfully altered the orbit of the asteroid. This marks the first time humanity has deliberately changed the displacement of a celestial object and is the first large-scale demonstration of asteroid deflection technology.”
