GIMPS has discovered a new largest known prime number: 282589933-1 (24,862,048 digits)

+ The main objectives of the polymath8 project initiated by Terry Tao in June 2013 were “to understand the recent breakthrough paper of Yitang Zhang establishing an infinite number of prime gaps bounded by a fixed constant {H}, and then to lower that value of {H} as much as possible.” Polymath8 was a remarkable success! Within two months the best value of H that was 70,000,000 in Zhang’s proof was reduced to 5,414. [Aronson]
