Sir Isaac Newton FRS (4 January 1643 – 31 March 1727 [OS: 25 December 1642 – 20 March 1727]) was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and theologian who is perceived and considered by a substantial number of scholars and the general public as one of the most influential scientists in history. His 1687 publication of the Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (usually called the Principia) is considered to be among the most influential books in the history of science, laying the groundwork for most of classical mechanics. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motions of objects on Earth and of celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural laws by demonstrating the consistency between Kepler's laws of planetary motion and his theory of gravitation, thus removing the last doubts about heliocentrism and advancing the scientific revolution.

Google has been changing its own logo lately, often turning it into a series of doodles with a riddle attached. It seems we’re about to see another series of logo changes, but this time their purpose is quite easy to discern.

If you’ve visited Google today, you may have noticed that the logo has turned into a holiday postcard. Clicking on it leads to a “Happy Holidays” landing page, with the current logo listed as the first in a series.

What can we say; thanks, Google, we wish you happy holidays, too!
