spotted typo at SNO

Spotted typos on a science page of the SNO LAB site. In the Search for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay topic. These sentences caught my eye...
"Their half lives (the time it takes for 1/2 of the parent material to decay) is typically on the order of 1018 to 1021 years. For comparison, the universe is 1010 of years old."
It looks like these numbers should be powers, no? Sent a note to the webmaster.
