Chris Caldwell writes (11 Sep 2014):  (report abuse)
Every Mersenne number less than this one has been checked once for primality (completed by GIMPS 8 April 2009), and then double checked (completed by GIMPS December 20, 2012). The residues for the tests were compared and they matched, providing a computational "proof" that this is the 42nd Mersenne prime by size.

Verification data:

Some of the very largest primes are externally verified by trusted groups or individuals and we do not reverify them at this site. This is one of those.
Query times: 0.0002 seconds to select prime, 0.0003 seconds to seek comments.
