Item: The 51st Mersenne Prime Number Digits Poster Set - Contains all 24,862,048 digits of the largest known Mersenne Prime, which is equal to 2 raised to the prime number 82,589,933 power, minus 1. This monster Mersenne Prime is spread across a 12-poster set.
The Mersenne #51 digits are crisply printed at just over 1 point in size. Super tiny. Super crisp. Super awesome. The microscopic digits even fill the large colored descriptive text. See the photos.
This is truly an Epic poster set and an amazing math gift for someone interested in prime numbers and their importance.
Thank you to Mersenne.Org and GIMPS (Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search) for providing the dataset of digits. Usually we calculate our own poster content but opted to borrow (with permission!) these existing results. You can visit them at them at GIMPS to learn more about the pursuit of new Mersenne Primes.
Magnifier / Loupe: Unless you have a strong magnifying glass or loupe with at least 15x power, we highly suggest you add one to your order. Depending on availability, we may provide a different magnifier than shown in the photos but it will have the same specs as what you've chosen, or better. The magnifiers we provide are a great combination of value and power. Click Here for magnifier guidelines.
Colors: Black print on white background. The digits form a gray halftone which can be seen in the photos. The large descriptive text comes in a bunch of beautiful colors. Currently we offer Magenta, Red or Blue.
Quality: This poster set is professionally printed on the highest quality poster stock.
Size: Each of the 12 posters is 12.25 x 24.75 inches. The entire assembled set is 73.5 x 49.5 inches. Note that these dimensions shrink by a bit if you overlap the posters at their margins. In that case, deduct about 1.25 inches from the length and .25 inches from the height.
The giant magnifier shown on top of the posters is just a visual aid to convey that the poster contains many digits.
