    And you notice the, mark at the end of the 0. Not enough actually it is a googol: 

    Googol.  A googol is the large number 10 100.

    Large number defined as ten to the power of 100

     . In decimal notation, it is written as the digit 1 followed by one hundred zeroes: 10,​000,​000,​000,​0... en.wikipedia.org
    And a half.
