In a magazine recently there was a discussion about probability.
The author asserted that the probability of the event in question was approximately
(1  10^{21})^{1025}
How small is this number?
(In reply to
re: This is a notation trick by Alexis)
You can agree that as the power gets bigger the number gets smaller. What you are missing is how much bigger 10^25 is than 10^21.
Your examples only use small exponents.
