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:
