I don't have this value (Superprimes--by wikipedia definition--are primes of prime index, but I don't think much of the term) and it will take a while to get close on my machine using PARI, so if anybody wants to do this I think it's out there not computed yet. The first value over 1 (The sum is pretty close) occurs with term 148189304, the reciprocal of the 3081648379th prime (73898684653). A sharp enough estimate without actually summing is probably not hard, btw.

claims a value between 1.0444 and 1.0478.

James did not give a refrence. As far as I can determine
this result was first obtained by Richard Fischer,
late in the evening of 17 October 2004.

>> Seit gestern spät abends kenne ich nun die Stelle,
wo die Summe 1 überschritten wird.
Dies ist bei der 148189304. prim-ten Primzahl.
n = 148189304
p(n) = 3081648359
p(p(n)) = 73898684653
Die Summe nach der Addition von 1/73898684653 lautet: 1.0000000000089
Die Extrapolationrechnung an dieser Stelle ergibt 1.043204331...
Wahrscheinlich dürfte die wahre Summe (bis n = unendlich) bis zur zweiten 4 korrekt sein, also 1.043204...
