Amelia Earhart in Google Logo गूगल लोगो पर अमेलिया इयरहार्ट

आज का गूगल लोगो अमेलिया इयरहार्ट पर है।  इस जाँबाज़ हवाबाज़ को पहली बार अकेले अटलांटिक महासागर पार करने का श्रेय जाता है। 1937 में यह दुनिया का चक्कर लगाने के प्रयास में प्रशांत महासागर के ऊपर कहीं लापता हो गई और आजतक यादों में है। गूगल लोगो के सहारे मनोरंजन और ज्ञानवर्धन दोनों होते हैं। मैने इसके पहले अनंत पै के गूगल लोगों पर पोस्ट लिखी थी। 
Amelia Mary Earhart (/ˈɛərhɑrt/ air-hart; July 24, 1897 – disappeared 1937) was a noted American aviation pioneer and author.[1][N 1] Earhart was the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean[3]. She received the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross for this record.[4].She set many other records,[2] wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots.[5] Earhart joined the faculty of the Purdue University aviation department in 1935 as a visiting faculty member to counsel women on careers and help inspire others with her love for aviation. She was also a member of the National Woman's Party, and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment.[6][7]
During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10 Electra, Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascination with her life, career and disappearance continues to this day.[N 2]
