BY LK137, his link has been posted yesterday at Triond.
It is one of the most mind boggling things I have ever read.
Most of us are familiar with the massively big number googol.
1 with a 100 zeros
However you want to call it is still a huge number, in fact so big that it exceeds the number of atoms in the known universe it would take you 3×10^35 years to count to. But of course it is not even close to the biggest number anyone can muster.
Googolplex- 1×10^10^100 power.
It is not infinity (infinity is not a number, it is an expression) but it is as close as you can get. This number is so big that if you took all the matter in the universe and converted it into ink and paper and started to write out each zero, in regular 12 point font, you would not even get 10 percent of the way there before you ran out of ink.
The Earth has about 5×10^50 atoms
The Sun has about 4.19×10^55
Our http://scienceray.com/astronomy/our-amazing-solar-system-and-beyond/“>Solar System has about 4.2×10^55 (The sun is huge)
The KNOWN universe has about 7×10^83 atoms and 99.9999999999999% of these are hydrogen
The Earth will end on December 21, 2012 whether you like it or not

This was probably not the most interesting article but I had thoughts that I wanted to get out.
Thank you Sandahl Bergman - Man it was a long time ago. Maybe the early 80s? Yeah that sounds right so let's go with it. It was the wary 80s, I was maybe 13 or 14, give or take. Whate...
