How big is a googolplex? Awesomely big.
A googol is a 1 followed by 100 zeros. That’s a fricking big number. A googolplex is a 1 followed by a googol of zeros. Obviously, much bigger. But, how big is it? It’s easy to say, but hard (impossible?) to comprehend. This video may help. Though, truth be told, even with the cute accents and visual aids, my head still hurts.
But a googleplex is still nowhere near the biggest number. There’s Graham’s Number, which makes a googolplex look like 1. And, of course, there’s infinity.
