Google has created a Doodle to celebrate the 158th birthday of Jagadish Chandra Bose. He has become well-known as a polymath whose résumé features a number of different job titles such as scientist, archaeologist, and science-fiction writer.

Here’s more from the Google Doodle website: “Born in Bangladesh in 1858, Bose was to become known not only for his work in biophysics, but also his innovation in the world of radio and microwave sciences, ultimately inventing an early version of wireless telecommunication. As a testament to his numerous contributions to the field, a moon crater was named in his honor.”

In the past, Google has crafted Doodles in honor of renowned playwright William ShakespeareWhere the Wild Things Are creator Maurice Sendak, and Anne of Green Gables novelist Lucy Maud Montgomery. Here’s a video from Google headquarters spotlighting the artists behind the doodles. Which authors would you suggest as future Doodle subjects?
