Back to the Future Part III

Though Doc asked Marty not to come back for him, Marty does go back anyway, because he and the 1955-Doc find out that Emmet Brown was killed shortly after the writing of the letter (by Mad Dog Tannen, the great-grandfather of Biff).
Right after the time-jump, the DeLorean is attacked by Indians who put an arrow to the gas tank, the fuel goes away.
Doc finds a way to solve that: they must kidnap a train and accelerate with that above 88 mphs.
Doc saves the new teacher of the town, Clara Clayton, who was supposed to die, and falls in love with her.

Question: Is "Googolplex" an actual word?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Yes. A "googol" is the number 10 raised to the 100th power, or a 1 followed by 100 zeroes. A "googolplex" is an even larger number - 10 raised to the power of a "googol", or represented as 1 followed by a "googol" zeroes.
