Google honours noted explorer Fridtjof Nansen with animated sketch doodle on his birthday
On the birth anniversary of noted Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen (born October 10, 1861), the internet search engine giant Google has marked the day with a black and white animated doodle on its home page to honour him.

The sketch shows the part of Earth's hemisphere in which sea and ice adventures have been shown. On one side of the hemisphere, Nansen's side profile is shown. At the center, in a circle, an animated adventure is shown and at the other end, an animated diary is depicted to indicate that he was fond of drawing too during her adventures.

The logo of Google is also in black and white with second 'O' replaced by a star which is the symbol of fame.

Nansen as a well-to-do lawyer and a mother is known for her exploratory, adventurous and humanitarian work.  She also motivated and trained her children to be athletic and hone physical skills,

Nansen, while training himself and his children, became an expert in various activities such as skating, tumbling, swimming and skiing which were helpful in exploration of Polar Regions.

Nansen (1861-1930) also donned the roles of a scientist, humanist, social activist, diplomat and rose to become Nobel Peace Prize laureate. In his youth, he trained himself to become a champion skier and ice skater while pursuing higher education. Besides the Nobel Peace Prize, he also won Cullum Geographical Medal and Patron's Gold Medal.

One of his most famous saying goes like this: "I demolish my bridges behind me...then there is no choice but to move forward." This shows his adventurous spirit of detached action.
