You can learn more about her on Wikipedia - this Doodle is global.

National Moon Day on July 20th commemorates the day man first walked on the moon in 1969. NASA reported the moon landing as being "...the single greatest technological achievement of all time." So to celebrate the day, Google is honoring this individual that worked at NASA.

Meanwhile, Bing has a breathtaking photo of earth from the moon on its home page and this site went a bit cartoony for the day.
