Google has been kind to sci-fi in the last year, dedicating some of their popular Google Doodles to such works of art as Star Trek (for its 46th anniversary) and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, referencing what would have been Douglas Adams’ 61st birthday. But instead of returning to narrative science fiction, Google decided to honor a slice of scientific folklore. (Don’t tell “The Believers” I called it folklore. Wink, wink.)
They’ve created an ?interactive game celebrating the 66th anniversary of the Roswell incident. With the growing number of random creature and alien sightings that play a large part in making the Internet the unique news source that it is, you’d think that people might forget about Roswell at some point. But that doesn’t look likely at all.
