All Things Considered, December 27, 2006 ·
Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service predicted weekend low temperature for the San Jose area of minus 30,000 degrees farenheit. The forecast is a computer error, and the temperature is physically impossible. But what would those sorts of temperature mean?

Some say absolute zero is unreachable due to uncertainty.

Well, they say it is unreachable in an artifical environment under the same priniciple that renders a machine incapable of achieving 100% efficiency.

Think about what a task it would be to remove every little bit of energy from a target. The source of removal itself would have to leak some energy back onto the target. MIT came damn close, though, at 450 pK.

Apparently everything ceases motion, except quantum mechanics. I don't even know what that means, but I want it.
