Searching for the largest known prime number
Posted 2217 days ago by dwendl
"Primegrid has multiple projects searching for different forms of very large prime numbers, including searching for the largest known prime number."
Wouldn't the search for the largest known prime number be trivial? If it's known, all you've got to do is Google it or some such lookup. What would be much more interesting would be to search for the largest UNknown prime number.
