This number is a composite.

A prime number with at least 1,000,000 digits is called a megaprime.

One of the Clay Mathematics Institute's Millennium Prize Problems (The Riemann Hypothesis) implies results about the distribution of prime numbers; a prize of $1,000,000 is offered for its proof. [McAlee]

Paul Erdős said, shortly before he died, "It will be another 1,000,000 years, at least, before we understand the primes."
