Today is 971 years since the birth of the great and world-famous mathematician, astronomer and philosopher. Omar Khayyam was born in the city of Nishapur, which is located in today's Iran. He was the son of a merchant, he also had a sister named Aisha. It is surprising, but at the age of 8, Omar Khayyam began to study mathematics, astronomy and even philosophy in depth.

Let's take a closer look at what the Google Doodle development team decided to portray in the new drawing. After all, all that they draw is related to man and meaning.

Before us is a Persian carpet in which the Google logo is embroidered below. Omar Khayam is located on the main site. He sits under a tree and reads a big book. In one hand he holds a bunch of grapes, and with the other hand he draws geometric figures in the air. Also near the figure you can see our planet and the sun over which two birds fly. Interestingly, these birds are depicted randomly or with some meaning. But there is no developer comment to this picture to find out.
