APC is responsible for discovering over 25 primes. The largest prime associated with APC is the mega-prime, 491*2^3473837+1. This Prime was discovered by member Stephen Norton on 29 August 2016 and was the 154th largest Prime ever found at the time of its discovery. The prime is 1,045,732 digits long.

Alien Prime Cult takes a very active role in the Prime Grid Challenges and we welcome new team members!
