Jules Verne tribute on Google home Doodle. Jules Verne ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea,’ is a classic science fiction novel that has a highlighted tribute. Google Doodle allows you to use a virtual joystick lever on the right of the home page logo.

Verne’s tribute can scroll to the left, right, up and of course down to the bottom of the sea bed. After descending through a background image comprising basic 3D animation elements, the logo reforms among the corals and sponges. The Doodle plays on elements of the classic story, which featured Captain Nemo. It was published in 1869.

It tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus as seen from the perspective of Professor Pierre Aronnax. The original edition had no illustrations. The first illustrated edition was published by Hetzel with illustrations by Alphonse de Neuville and Edouard Riou.

The title “Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea” refers to the distance traveled while under the sea and not to a depth, as 20,000 leagues is 2.7 times the circumference of the earth. The greatest depth mentioned in the book is four leagues. The early English translations of the title used “sea”, meaning the ocean in general.
