Found the biggest Prime number. This was reported by the participants of the project GIMPS who are searching for the so-called Mersenne primes.

According to scientists, this number contains 23 249 425 characters, so to reflect it visually impossible. According to the calculations of mathematicians, and recording such number would take more than seven thousand pages, reports The Guardian.

Scientists have assigned a number designation M77232917. It is noted that a number represents a power of two minus 1 with the exponent equal to 77 232 917.

Thus, the new largest Prime number closes the series of numbers that are divisible by 1 and themselves. Among these 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31 and others.

It is noteworthy that the previous biggest Prime number was discovered in January 2016. But its length is a million characters shorter.

According to one of the mathematicians, the new Prime number was discovered quickly enough.

Meanwhile NASA showed amazing pictures of Jupiter. Camera probe Juno worked with a range of 8 to 300 miles if the scale is 5.8 km per pixel.
