It is a temperature at which atom and light itself behave in highly unusual way. At Wolfgang Ketterle’s lab, MIT, Cambridge. Temperature achieved: −459.67∘F , (810 trillionths of a degree F above absolute zero). It holds the Guinness world record. To get an idea of this temperature, you must know: The coldest Temperature in deep outer space is−455∘F.   The coldest Temperature on Moon is−275∘F. The coldest Temperature on Mars is −243∘F.   Now imagine the chills Wolfgang Ketterle’s lab can give you. The story behind this Ketterle achieved this feat when he was actually trying to create a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). These condensates are formedRead More →
