Google celebrates Newton's birthday w/ cool animation

January 4th is the birthday of Sir Isaac Newton, the English physicist and astronomer who discovered the law of gravity in plain science. Google is celebrating his birthday with a cool logo animation.

Once you open Google Search at or, the search page will show the Google logo with a branch of an apple tree bearing fruits. After a second or two, one apple falls on the ground. This animation represents Newton's law of gravity.

I think the "falling apple" at Google - Newton's Google doodle - is the first animated Google logo doodle ever..
