Hi all, this isn't a homework problem or anything just simply curious. Which is a larger number, Graham's number or the estimated number of atoms in the universe factorial?

So Graham's number or $\displaystyle (10^{80})!$

Since this is in math puzzles I've hidden my solution

I posted it in here not as a challenge to others but really as an answer to something I was just wondering. I was recently told to think of the largest possible number that still has some kind of meaning. I decided that the total number of atoms in the observable universe factorial is the largest number that still has any relevant meaning... I can't believe that even g1 is larger... considering graham's number is g64. Graham's number must really be the largest number that has any meaning.
