The “heaviest” Standard Index Form Maths Starter Question?

The earth is approx. 6,588,000,000,000,000,000 tons. What is this in Standard Index Form?

A great Maths starter question to begin or end your Maths lesson on Standard index form. I normally have it as my Maths killer question during a Maths lesson and reward the Maths learner who answers it first, and explain their answer.
