    the speed of light is 3.0*10^8 m/s
    It's easier to keep track of that than 300000000.

    Also there are numbers like a googol, which are just too big to write without scientific notation. googol = 10^100
    googolplex = 10^googol

    Then there are numbers like Skewes' number which cannot even be written in scientific notation; they're just too blasted big!

    2*10^7 * 3*10^-4 = 6*10^3
