Absolute Zero

"This two-part story scientific detective tells the story of a remarkable group of pioneers who wanted to get to the last extreme: absolute zero, a place so cold that the physical world as we know does not exist, electricity flows without resistance, fluids defy gravity and the speed of light can be reduced to 38 miles per hour.

Every movie has a strange cast of eccentric characters, including: Clarence Birds Eye, Frederick Tudor ‘Ice King’, he founded an empire harvesting ice, and James Dewar, who almost drove himself crazy by trying to liquefy hydrogen.

Absolute zero became the Holy Grail of temperature physicists and is considered the gateway to many new technologies such as nano-construction, neurological networks and quantum computing. The possibilities are apparently endless.

The strange story of how to use a court magician of alchemy King sent a shiver. It could be the future become a strange quantum world that physicists get within a few millionths of a degree of this absolute zero?"
