# Are there any more consecutive prime numbers?

The only prime numbers with a difference of 1 are the numbers 2 and 3. More consecutive numbers are not possible, since one of the two would have to be even - and an even number is divisible by 2, and therefore not a Prime number (2, of course, is a prime number, but larger even numbers are not).

The most you can expect with larger prime numbers is a difference of 2. Very large such "prime twins" are known; a few are 3 and 5; 101 and 103, but much larger ones are known, as well. It is not yet known whether there are an infinite number of twin primes.
