Default Predict M47

Well, I know we don't know the identities of M45 and M46 yet, but we know we have two primes, so we might as well get M47 guesses out there.

Predict the exponent and/or the date it will be found.

I'll guess 50M in September 2009.

This thread is not intended to be something like "exact maths", it is a game just for fun.

(and fun is often pointless, but it's funny.)

I suspect that the Mersenne Primes will be so densely located in these ranges and higher. So, around only 50 million or slightly less than that within the next 6 to 9 months is thus my estimate!
