Google Employee Sets New Pi Calculation World Record

Google employee, Emma Haruka Iwao, set a new world record for the number of digits of pi calculated. 31,415,926,535,897 digits to be exact.

Iwao used the same y-cruncher program as the previous record holder, Peter Trueb, who calculated 22,459,157,718,361 digits in 2016.
Nevertheless, the 9 trillion extra digits are unlikely to be used in the real-world (NASA uses 15 digits to send rockets into space and only 40 digits are used to measure the visible Universe circumference to the precision of a single atom).
