Someone has now worked out the first 31 trillion digits of pi:
It would take over 300,000 years for someone to read out those digits.
It's Pi Day today because March 14th is 3.14
What about the fastest super computer El?
The fastest super computer at present can do 143,500,200,795 floating point operations per second. So 31 trillion floating point operations would take about 216 seconds (3½ minutes). But it would take longer than that as to read a single digit would presumably take more than 1 floating point operation.
I’m as baffled, Moonie
