Google honors Eadweard Muyridge


Washington Post Muybridge article

This great Washington Post article taught me something I didn't know about Muybridge before -- he killed a man that he thought was having an affair with his wife!

Today’s Google “doodle” honors the man that proved that, at a gallop, a horse is fully suspended off the ground – Eadweard Muybridge.

The animation celebrates the 182nd anniversary of Muybridge’s birth.

I suggest reading the Washington Post article highlighted to the left. It gives an excellent overview of Muybridge including some details that were new to me.
