Is There A Trick To Memorize Huge Numbers Like The New Largest-Known Prime?

We don't all have super memories or eidetic memories that would enable our brains to easily catalog and retrieve everything that we have seen, read, heard, felt, or experienced throughout our lives. Only a handful of people probably have that capacity, less than 1% of the population so how about the rest of us?

Well, Evelyn Lamb from Scientific American says there may be ways that would allow us to remember the digits in the new Mersenne prime. She shares those with us in her article.
