[R] Beyond double-precision?

I need to perform some calculations with some extremely small numbers (i.e.
likelihood values on the order of 1.0E-16,000). Even when using the
double() function, R is rounding these values to zero. Is there any way to
get R to deal with such small numbers?
For example, I would like to be able to calculate e^-10000 (i.e.
exp(-10000)) without the result being rounded to zero.
I know I can do it in Mathematica, but I would prefer to use R if I can.
Any help would be appreciated!
Many Thanks in Advance!
