Is anyone wondering whats up with the google doodle today?

it is leonhard euler's birthday
Euler, a great physicist and mathematician turns 360 today and Google is celebrating his birthday with an interactive Google Doodle. Born on 15 April 1707, Euler’s contribution to discoveries in the fields of infinitesimal calculus and graph theory is notable.

Euler discovered his love for mathematics at a young age. He received higher education and was enrolled in the University of Basel at the young age of thirteen. He completed his earlier education in the same region. Euler received his Masters of Philosophy in 1723, just 3 years later at the age of 16! Euler’s father wanted his son to be a pastor and hence stressed on him learning subjects like theology, Greek and Hebrew. However, his tutor recognised Euler’s talent for mathematics and convinced his father that Euler had the potential to be a great mathematician.
