GIMPS has discovered a new largest known prime number: 2^{82589933}1 (24,862,048 digits) In a 1992 article, Samuel Yates coined the name gigantic prime for any prime with 10,000 or more decimal digits (he had also coined the term titanic primes a decade earlier). At the time these were very rare, now many are known.
