The Greek God Zeus ordered his blacksmith Hephaestus to create a perpetual water-making machine to fill Zeus' mighty chalice. The volume of Zeus' chalice was reported to hold about one hundred and fifty sextillion gallons (that is a fifteen followed by twenty-two zeros). If Hephaetus' machine pours out 2 gallon in the first minute and then doubles its output each minute, find in which minute would this hypothetical machine pour out a single quantity of water that would be enough to fill Zeus' chalice with water?
