Google Logo: Sir Edmund Hillary

Google has put up a special logo on its homepage to celebrate the 55th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hillary's ascent of Mt Everest.

New Zealand-born Sir Ed, who died in January, was with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay the first to reach the peak of the world's highest mountain.

The logo is visible on the Australian and New Zealand Google homepages, as well as other countries such as Nepal.

Google periodically changes its logo to celebrate special events and anniversaries, such as the invention of the first laser, Earth Day, or February 29th.
