Sizecomparison

1027 meters, compared to the observable universe

In the long scale, 1027 is called quadrilliard, which is commonly used in France and Germany.

Both Russ Rowlett's Greek-based naming system[2] and Aarex Tiaokhiao's googology site[3] give the name ennillion for this number.

The number is also called tre-bitillion by SuperJedi224.[4]
