I'm sure people have heard of the googolplex before. Its much bigger than M41.

Another result - 486*24036583+1 divides (2^24036583+1)/3, so the New Mersenne Conjecture still holds.
 2004-06-14, 02:54 #403 Terrence Law   May 2004 2×37 Posts Off Topic - New Mersenne Conjecture. Here is what they establish the New Mersenne Conjecture. Let p be any odd natural number. If two of the following conditions hold, then so does the third: 1) p = 2^k +/- 1 or p = 4^k +/- 3 2) 2^p - 1 is a prime 3) (2^p + 1)/3 is a prime
