Thumbs up Prime Sierpinski Project

Prime Sierpinski Project (PSP) is a new project (not so new as a few individuals have been working on it for the last few months) aimed at solving the Prime Sierpinski Problem. The Prime Sierpinski Problem involves showing that 271129 is the smallest prime Sierpinski number. In order to do so we need to find 22 more primes.

If you are interested in finding large record primes or are just interested in utilizing your computing power for something interesting and constructive, this is the project for you. To get started read this thread. (

If you do not have any computing power and are still interested in the project you are most welcomed to join and make the project even more interesting. Anyone with any suggestions to offer is always welcomed.

If you have any questions on getting started, you can ask on the forum or PM them to me!
