This has smashed the previous record of 62.8 trillion digits. Now, when they take pi all the way out to infinity, I'll really be impressed. ;)

On Pi Day (March 14), Solidigm — a U.S. computer storage company based in California — revealed in a statement that it has calculated pi to approximately 105 trillion decimal places.

To put that into context, if you typed out this number on paper using a 10-point font in one continuous line, the number would be around 2.3 billion miles (3.7 billion kilometers) long, meaning it could stretch from Earth to somewhere between Uranus and Neptune. And in case you were wondering, the 105 trillionth digit of pi is 6.

A trillion is an enormous figure

60 seconds=1 minute
86400 seconds=1 day
1 trillion seconds=30 THOUSAND YEARS+
