What Google Knew About the Asteroid Striking Russia


Google's Doodle might be for Fun  and at times its observing the pioneer of Science and Technology, not to mention Holidays and Events. However in a bizarre event,  the Google Doodle has managed to create a political storm  as it found out recently, during the Asteroid striking Russia last week .However Google  had removed its Doodle of Asteroid hitting the Earth   ( this was done before the actual event of Asteroid striking the Earth However Google says this was just a Holiday Fun 
The doodle was very simple. The second G in "Google" came to life on noticing a disturbance; leaped in shock; then hopped aside just in time to avoid the incoming Asteroid 2012 DA14, which plunged through the hole left by the fleeing letter. Then the G, with danger past, hopped back into place.

However that was short lived as an  innocuous asteroid struck Russia and injured many of them. Its no secret that Google Nerds 
leaning artists thought it might be fun to create a little something that cheered the fact that Asteroid 2012 DA14 wasn't going to strike  Earth and create havoc.
Google explained to ABC News: "Out of respect for those injured in the extraordinary meteor shower in Russia earlier today, we have removed today's doodle from the Google home page." (ABC also reported that many scientists believed the Russian meteorite was not a fragment of Asteroid 2012 DA14 and that the events were not related.)
