Another large number comes from the Large Hadron Collider. Each of its opposing beams usually contains 2808 bunches with about 100 billion protons in each bunch. Now you do the math, multiply those two numbers together. Now that is a huge, huge number that gets pretty close to our National Debt
How about another big number. During the 85 days that the Mars Pathfinder lander was active back in 1997, it took more than 8.5 million measurements of Martian air pressure, temperature, and wind speed. That is a lot of information for the technicians to look over. . . oh yes, I forgot that we are now in the computer age so maybe they just turned that job over to a super computer.
We have been having a lot of rain and it ain't over yet. How long has it been that you saw a TV weatherman predict 100% chance of rain for this whole dang day. Sure glad I am an old fart and don't have to go out in this unless I want to. Ran out real quick last night (actually about 04:00 this morning) when the power went off and unplugged my motorhome from shore power. Didn't quite get that done in time the last time the power went off and the surge, when it came back on, messed up my ignition and dashboard electronics. No, I haven't got it fixed yet. Now, I hope you all are warm and dry and make sure you have a great day, you hear?
