The biggest number known to man is Googolplex. By Oxford Languages definition, Googolplex is “equivalent to ten raised to the power of a googol.”
For reference, Googol is 10 to the 100th power, which is 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
So, basically, writing googolplex is crazy hard lol and the number isn’t even used for much either because it’s just too big, but in scientific notation, it looks like or or
Bonus fact: Google got it’s name from Googol!
