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

+ 159 = 3 x 53, and upon concatenating the prime factors, we have a peak palindrome, 353, which is itself a prime. [Trotter]

+ Deshouillers (1973) showed that all integers are the sum of at most 159 prime numbers.

(There is one curio for this number that has not yet been approved by an editor.)
