In the news today, the Intelligent Design Debacle is over in Dover, PA. Also, I just learned that last month a new largest prime number has been found. The number is (230402457-1) and it is 9.1 million digits long. Wow. That means it's square root is about 4.5 million digits long, which is still too huge for me to imagine. Google has a page on big numbers, according to which the number of particles in the universe is estimated to be less than 1080, and the age of the universe is "only" maybe 1017 seconds. 109100000 is just big.
