Happy Birthday Google!

Today, 27th September, a search engine was born. The creators Sergey Brin and Larry Page named it Google, now 13 years of age. Google was named after a Googol, the name of the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. They found the term in the book Mathematics and the Imagination by Edward Kasner. This name was chosen to represent the vast amount of information that the search engine would store. Here are some interesting facts about Google you might have not known !
