The Google Submarine

Google’s creativity is sometimes amazing. To remember the great works of Jules Verne, e.g. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea Google has put a virtual submarine on its main page of their search engine. With a pilot stick you can interactively dive under the sea and discover some creatures.

But who was Jules Verne? The English wikipedia says:

Jules Verne was a French author who pioneered the science fiction genre. He is best known for his novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travels before air travel and practical submarines were invented, and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the second most translated author in the world (after Agatha Christie). Some of his books have also been made into live-action and animated films and television shows. Verne is often referred to as the “Father of Science Fiction”, a title sometimes shared with Hugo Gernsback and H. G. Wells.
