Hi. You ask fun questions! According to this Ask the Astronomer site: http://itss.raytheon.com/cafe/qadir/q1797.html the answer is in the neighborhood of 10^78 atoms, give or take a couple of gazillion. The Mad Scientist site: http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/may98/892502124.Ph.r.html puts it at 10^79...pretty close agreement, if you ask me. Of course, they're all guessing, but it's impressive work, just the same. Let me know if you need any more information here. pafalafa-ga search strategy: I fed your question verbatim into Google and came up with a lot of good links.
