a googolplex is 10^googol (if you wrote this down in its expanded form, the paper would not fit into the volume of the solar system)

Well... a googol is greater than most estimates of the number of particles in the universe (around 10^86 from memory), so even if you took each elemental particle to be a zero, you still couldn't write a googolplex using the entire universe as a whiteboard!
