The author of the hugely popular Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series Douglas Adams is celebrated posthumously on Google's homepage. He would have been 61 today.

The interactive animation features animated references to the Adam's sci-fi creations, including the Babelfish, a creature inserted into a user's ear in order to translate any language and a vibrating cup of tea.

Ticker tape forming the 'G' from Google flows from the computer console desk and Marvin the Paranoid Android is briefly revealed behind an electronic door.



The first part of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was adapted into a BBC TV series in early eighties and made into a commercially successful big budget feature film starring Martin Freeman and rapper Mos Def in 2005.

The author gained millions of fans around the world who appreciated his dry sense of humour and unique view of the world.
