Google is the most popular Internet search engine in the world.  It was invented by two students, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. They met in 1995, when they were both studying computer science at Stanford University, USA. They were also both fans of the science fiction TV program Star Trek, and they loved the spaceship computer. They dreamed of producing something that could answer any question in seconds.
Internet search engines at the time were slow and gave many websites that weren’t useful. In January 1996, Page and Brin decided to make a better and faster search engine. They thought the results should be based on the popularity of each website – the most popular ones have the highest number of “web links” (links to other websites).
Nobody would give them money for their project, so they used their credit cards and bought as much computer memory as possible. They also borrowed money from family and friends. Then in 1998, they were given a cheque for $100,000, and they started their own company. Their first office was in a friend’s garage!!!! The company name Google comes from mathematics. A Googol is a very high number-1 followed by a hundred zeros (100000000000000000000000000000000000000000...... The Google search engine was soon used by thousands of people worldwide because it’s fast, easy and accurate. By 2002 it was the biggest search engine on the Internet. Now, more questions have been answered by Google than in any other Internet service, from sport to science, and from travel to technology. Google hopes that in the future the entire world’s information will be put on the Internet, so that everybody can find everything.

Ashna Interesting article....but did you know that when they first thought of that idea and presented it to their teacher (I think), their teacher said that such a thing was not possible. Now look where Google has reached..... Kinda shows how nothing is really impossible....we can make the impossible possible Ashna
