googol: The number 10 raised to the power 100 (10นบบ), written out as the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. ETYMOLOGY: Coined at the age of nine by Milton Sirotta, nephew of Edward Kasner (18781955), American mathematician.
In LIU I found, to my surprise, that this is not the same spelling as the name of the search engine. Perhaps the search-engine name used different spelling for copyright reasons. Can anyone advise?

A googol is a one followed by 100 zeros.
A googolplex, though is a 1 followed by 10 to the 100th power zeros. And that's mighty big._________________________
