Mathematicians say the value of pi will never end. This is because it is known as an irrational number which means that it does not end, nor does it repeat. Mathematicians using computers are constantly trying to set new records for calculations for pi.

I think the most current record was set in 2016 by a man named Peter Trueb. With his company’s permission, he used 24 of their hard drives, each containing 6 terabytes of memory. The end result was a calculation of pi to 9 trillion digits. It’s quite impressive to see it expressed as “22,459,157,718,361 fully verified digits of pi”.
