Doodle 4 Google winner Matteo Lopez inspired by Neil Armstrong


Doodle 4 Google winner Matteo Lopez on “Today.” (Screengrab from “Today” show.)

Like his source of inspiration, Lopez said he would like to visit other planets someday. (Interestingly, Google celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing in 2009 with a Doodle of its own.)

As Melissa Bell reported Thursday, Lopez won a $15,000 college scholarship, a netbook computer and a $25, 000 technology grant for his school. The young artist, who was wearing a shirt displaying his creation, wasn’t shy about saying he thought his Doodle was the best.

The only thing that could make this story cuter? An Armstrong-Lopez meet-up. Watch Lopez’s interview below:
