Fun Fact – Septillion

Here’s a fun fact that I came across when looking into what a septillion is the fact is that there are up to a septillion stars in space but there are also a septillion snowflakes falling in Canada every year which is quite fascinating. To sum it up a septillion is a massive number and it represents how many stars there are in space and is therefore important to the galaxy project.

There is a long scale and a short scale septillion used depending on the country :

A short scale septillion is a number equal to one followed by 24 zeros.

A long scale septillion is a number equal to one followed by 42 zeros.
