Google Homepage Celebrates the First Laser

On this day in 1960, just 48 short years ago, Theodore Maiman of Hughes Research Laboratories demonstrated the first working laser. Just what would our world be without lasers anyway? A very unlasery place I imagine. Google celebrates this day with a homepage dedicated to lasers and a creative Google logo composed entirely of lasers!


So remember folks wish your friendly neighborhood laser a happy birthday today, and don’t forget it’s incredible contribution the next time you use your CD or DVD player, shop at a grocery store, or use any one of a million products worldwide reaping the benefit of laser technology.
