Physicists Just Cooled Molecules to a Hair Above Absolute Zero

Many scientists say that reaching absolute zero is a lot like traveling at the speed of light: impossible. Well, some MIT scientists almost pulled a Doc Brown and got a lot closer to the impossible goal by cooling a molecule to 500 nanokelvins. That’s just above absolute zero and about a million times colder than… »6/16/15 1:20pm6/16/15 1:20pm
