Several new prefixes have been introduced to describe incredibly large and incredibly small numbers.
They're likely to be used in the future to describe computer data – just as terabytes are bigger than megabytes. But the new prefixes, including "ronna" and "quetta," could also be used in other measurements. (The Earth weighs about 1 ronnagram, according to the most recent issue of the journal Nature.)
Terabytes are small change compared to the newest measurements scientists have for describing extremely huge amounts of data. The prefix "ronna," which stands for a factor of 10 to the 27th power (or the number 1 followed by 27 zeroes), and "quetta," for 10 to the 30th power, were added to the International System of Units, the journal Nature reported Friday.
