Pi Calculated To Five-Trillionth Number By Yahoo Employee

Last time we heard of the Pi record being broken, a Japanese man calculated the five trillionth digit as being "2", using a custom-built computer (pictured).

The 2,000,000,000,000,000th (two quadrillionth) digit? It's zero, according to Nicholas Sze, at Yahoo. [BBC]
