COMMENTS

The same as 2^512. In this capacity, a floating point approximation is often casually given in computer programming textbooks (like the Hunt & Thomas) as an example where overflow is risked, and that risk is at times overcome, at others incurred.
3^3^3 = 7625597484987 (see A002488) while 5^5^5 is approximately 1.9110125979457752 * 10^2184.
